While many distilleries create either peated or unpeated whiskies, Jura 10 marries the best of both in this truly unique single malt. Hailing from one of the oldest distilleries on a remote Scottish island, this whisky is matured for 10 years in American white-oak ex-bourbon barrels, then finished in aged Oloroso sherry casks. Copper gold in colour, Jura 10 exudes aromas of fruit, cracked pepper, and dark chocolate, followed by nectarine, ginger, and freshly ground coffee on the palate with a subtle touch of smoke on the finish.
