This latest Jura release, which is limited to just 21 bottles, is said to deliver notes of aromatic sandalwood, blood orange, raisin, nectarine and toasted bananas on the nose. Followed by notes of tropical fruit salad, nectarines, roasted walnuts and black coffee on the palate.

Commenting on the release, Richard Trimby, Whyte & Mackay Travel Retail Director, said: “Despite the current climate, there is still strong demand for these unique and very rare releases appealing to Scotch aficionados and collectors. This Very Rare Vintage 1975 is a remarkable single malt which not only shows a real test of time, but also reflects the incredible skills of our whisky makers in knowing when the time was right to bottle this rare treasure. Our commitment to offering special, limited and truly rare products is reflected in this release and we are sure both Jura lovers and the wider whisky fraternity will relish this extraordinary whisky.”

Jura Vary Rare Vintage 1975, will be available later this month through travel retail outlets in Asia, for a RRP of £6,880.
