Jura Distillery Cask - Fèis Ìle Edition 2021, is said to deliver notes of candied almonds, toasted marshmallows and Scottish tablet on the nose. Followed by notes of chocolate orange, treacle, Demerara sugar and sticky sweet-salted caramel on the palate.
This latest release, which will launch on the distillery’s official day of Fèis Ìle (Islay Festival of Music and Malt) on June 6th, will for the first time, support the vital annual Jura Music Festival.
A donation of £25 from each bottle sold will help to honour Jura’s favourite island event of the year, which this year will take place online during the last weekend in September.
Commenting on the news, Graham Logan, Jura Distillery Manager, said: “Despite the challenges of the past year, we are delighted to be back for Fèis Ìle 2021 with a very special limited-edition release which gives back to our community and this vital annual event which we’ve proudly supported over the years.”
He went onto say: “When hand selecting this specific cask, I was looking for a whisky that was smooth, bright and lively, like the atmosphere on the island during the festival. This 18-Year-Old single cask bottling is a real treat for Jura fans. Our gulf stream-protected warehouses allow a longer maturation cycle and the sea spray and cask have given this whisky a long-lasting, salted caramel taste on the tongue.”
Limited to 340 bottles, Jura Distillery Cask - Fèis Ìle Edition 2021, will be available from June 6th via the Jura Distillery website, for a RRP of £145.00.
