Marking the distillery's annual whisky festival, Jura Whisky has announced the bottling of a new limited-edition single malt – Tastival 2017.
Taking place on 1 June, the festival celebrates new ways to enjoy whisky through 'flavour experiences that everyone can enjoy'.
Now onto what you're here for, the whisky. The non chill-filtered, cask-strength expression marries some of Jura’s finest aged spirits, is enhanced in both first fill American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels and Graham’s Port Pipes sourced from Portugal’s Douro Valley. They say there are notes of chewy liquorice, black forest fruits and creamy white chocolate on the nose, and orange zest, walnut cake, glazed pineapple and crème de cassis on the aftertaste.
'Tastival is all about welcoming people to Jura with open arms – not only to our island festival, but to our whisky – whether you’re a single malt expert or are trying it for the first time,' said Jura distillery manager, Graham Logan. 'The creativity that goes into our Tastival event programme is well reflected in this limited-edition expression, meaning everyone can enjoy a taste of our festival.'
Festival-goers will have the chance to exclusively try this year’s limited-edition bottling at the island festival on 1 June, where the whisky will also be available to buy.
