Jura 12 Years Old Sherry Cask, is said to deliver notes of warm honey, vanilla, rich fruit, toffee, brioche, apricots, chocolate and almonds on the nose. Followed by notes of ripe plum, sweet spices and layers of citrus on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Gregg Glass, Whisky Maker & Blender at Whyte & Mackay, said: “In bringing together the unique passion and influence of Jura, with the flair and vibrancy of our Sherry making partners of Jerez, this 12 Years Old showcases a richly dark and fruity character for the Asian market.  The new release has a sweet warmth with rich flavours and fruity notes which we know will appeal to those looking to experience a classic Jura single malt together.”

He went onto say: “The classic style of Jura evokes the early years of modern distillation at the distillery following its reopening in 1963; a time when our tall stills and unpeated malt created a character full of fruit and vibrancy. It is this distinctive style which we wanted to bring to the Taiwanese market on an exclusive basis, demonstrating our commitment to introducing innovative new whiskies in Asia.”

Jura 12 Year Old Sherry Cask, will be available later this month, from specialist retailers in Taiwan, for a RRP of 1050 NT$.
