The Scottish Jura distillery is completely overhauling its entire range of whiskies in what’s seen as the biggest change in its history. Jura’s core range of Origin, Superstition, Diurach’s Own 16 Year Old and Prophecy will be replaced with five new bottlings, and Travel Retail stores will also see new whiskies.
Jura core range
The whiskies in Jura’s new range include two NAS (No Age Statement) whiskies: Journey and Seven Wood. Additionally, the 10 Year Old and 18 Year Old will be replaced by new expressions, and a 12 Year Old single malt is added to their range.
Jura Journey is matured exclusively in American oak barrels, bottled at 40% abv and available for around €35.
Jura Seven Wood is matured in seven types of French oak and first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels, bottled at 42% abv and available for around €65.
Jura 10 Year Old spent time in American oak and Oloroso sherry casks, is bottled at 40% abv and costs around €42.
Jura 12 Year Old has also been aged in American oak and Oloroso sherry casks, is bottled at 40% abv and will be available for €50.
Jura 18 Year Old is finished in red wine casks after an American oak maturation, bottled at 44% abv and will cost around €85.
Jura Travel Retail range
This was already announced at the end of last year, but Jura’s range for Travel Retail stores will exist of five ex-Pedro Ximénez Sherry cask finished whiskies. The NAS expressions The Sound, The Road and The Loch will be accompanied by two aged whiskies; the 12 year old The Bay and the 19 year old The Paps.
Jura The Sound is bottled at 42.5% and will be available for around €50 for a one-litre bottle.
Jura The Road is bottled at 43.6% abv and sold in a one-litre bottle for around €67.
Jura The Loch is bottled at 44.5% abv and will be available for around €77.
Jura The Bay is a 12 year old single malt. It’s sold in a one-litre bottle and bottled at 44% abv.
Jura The Paps is finished in casks that once held 40 year old PX sherry, and bottled at 45.6% abv. This 19 year old single malt will cost around €95.
