Whyte & Mackay, has announced the launch of two new expressions from its Jura single malt Scotch whisky brand.

Jura Rare Vintage 1989 (53.5% ABV) has been matured for 30 years in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels. Jura Rare Vintage 1988 – 2019 Edition (52.8% ABV) has been matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels, before being finished for five years in port pipes.

Jura launches two new vintage expressions

In 2018, Jura revealed the first in its new range of rare and limited releases with the Jura 28 Year Old and Jura Rare Vintage 1988 - 2018 bottling. A year on, these two new releases are said to celebrate the power of extended maturation.

These two latest releases are also said to deliver Jura’s signature house style and build on the growing global popularity of its whiskies, since relaunching last year with a new "flavour direction".

Commenting on the launch, Gregg Glass, Whisky Maker & Blender said: “Jura has been in a unique position to create a history of single malts like no other. These releases are no exception, and are a reflection of the dedication of our community over generations to produce the finest whiskies. Our rare and limited releases pay homage to the people and breath-taking landscape of Jura over the years, and offer our growing, global community a truly unique flavour of our island home.” 

Jura Rare Vintage 1989, will be available later this month from specialist retailers for a RRP of £650.00. Jura Rare Vintage 1988 – 2019 Edition, will be available exclusively from retailers in Asia, for a RRP of £650.00.
