Description

Isle of Jura 10 YO

Light golden, yellow in colour, the nose is light clean and fresh, with a hint sea salt, almonds, and spice notes. On the palate it has light peaty notes, with fruit and spicy overtones with a sweet, peaty finish.

The distillery was first built overlooking the Sound of Jura in 1810. The distillery draws its water from Loch a’Bhaile-Mhargaidh’ (the market loch), a thousand feet (300m) above Craighouse, the island’s only village. The distillery’s machinery and buildings were owned by different individuals and a dispute between the two led to its closure for over fifty years in 1913. It was effectively redesigned and rebuilt before its reopening in the 1960s.

The Isle of Jura distillery is located so close to the island of Islay that they often participate in the annual ‘Feis Ile’ whisky festival of the Islay distilleries. But even though the Isle of Jura distillery is located just a ferry ride away from ‘the parish of peat’, its house style is completely different. They produced a few peated batches, but most of the regular expressions show a trademark oily profile – not unlike cod liver oil though no in terms of flavour of course.

Glenmorangie Original 10 YO 40%

Flaky oakiness with a complex toastiness to the barley suggesting the lightest hint of smoke. Amazingly long, drying from the initial sweetness but with flaked almonds amid the oakier notes. A great single malt: beautifully uncompromising from the first sniff to the last gulp.

Clynelish 14 YO

You can almost taste the coastal flora in Clynelish Single Malt Scotch Whisky, with its crisp, medium- bodied, mustard-fresh style. Although you won’t find Islay’s powerful smokiness here, there is just a trace of it lingering. It’s said Clynelish whisky is closer to an Island style than other mainland malts, with a complex and fragrant nose and an agreeable long finish that leaves a lingering fresh-fruity flavour. Not a heavyweight, it is yet deliciously drinkable, and perfect as an aperitif.
