Jura rolls out 10yo across US

Whyte & Mackay-owned single malt Jura has unveiled Jura 10, the first release in the brand's new core line for the US.

Jura 10 consists of peated and unpeated malt and is matured for ten years in American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels with an aged oloroso Sherry cask finish. Copper gold in colour, Jura 10 has aromas of “fruit, cracked pepper and dark chocolate”, followed by “nectarines, ginger and freshly ground coffee” on the palate with a “subtle touch of smoke” on the finish. "The launch of the new Jura 10 celebrates our heritage of whisky-making," said Graham Logan, Jura Distillery manager. "The craft of producing great whisky has been at the heart of Jura's close-knit community for hundreds of years and we look forward to sharing the long-standing traditions and unmistakable flavours of Jura 10's island home with the world." Jura 10 is available at retailers nationwide with a suggested RRP of US$54.99 per 750ml bottle. In August last year, Jura launched One for the Road – a limited edition whisky created to mark the retirement of its distillery manager, Willie Cochrane.
