This latest release, which follows on from the first bottling in the series; Jura Red Wine Cask, is said to deliver notes of citrus fruits, creamy caramel latte, sweet sultanas and a hint of banana on the nose. Followed by notes of coffee, maple syrup, spicy mulled wine, vanilla and cinnamon on the palate.

Jura Cask Edition Series, celebrates the role of different cask finishes throughout the maturation process and the impact they have on creating the distinctive flavour of Jura. The series also highlights the connection between the land and the spirit bringing distinct regional and seasonal flavours to the island malt.

Commenting on the launch, Gregg Glass, Whisky Maker at Whyte & Mackay, said: “I’m really passionate about exploring the flavour we can unlock within Jura. In our new Winter Edition, we’ve created the perfect festive season toaster. In this expression, we have crafted a harmonious marriage of sweet spices and freshly baked apple pie, which result in an indulgent whisky while staying true to the heart of our distillery character with its mapled and citrussy characteristics.”

He went onto say: “The Isle of Jura is a unique place to develop and experiment with whisky and Jura Whisky is at the heart of an unbreakable bond between our island, our people and our distillery.  This release captures that island spirit and is ideal for keeping warm with friends and family and toasting during the winter months.”

Jura’s Winter Edition, will be available later this month exclusively from Tesco in the UK, for a RRP of £44.00.
