In 1984, Jura casked a small quantity of unambiguously excellent single malt whisky and, thirty years later, Jura 1984 Vintage, has been released as a limited edition malt.
There are only 1,984 individually numbered bottles available worldwide, with a retail price of £750.
With this new rare and richly aromatic malt, Jura continues to surprise with the uncommon masterpieces that are created on its unpolished shores.
Jura 1984 Vintage has an intense and uncensored taste matured in American White Oak, Amoroso and Apostoles Oloroso sherry butt casks.
Each extraordinary bottle is non-chill filtered at 44% ABV.
As always, Jura invites customers to share their own tasting notes, but whisky lovers are likely to find a suggestion of honey, vanilla, ginger, peach syrup and banana cake on the nose.
On the palette, hints of ripe pineapple will develop into bitter chocolate and finish with rich morello cherries.
Jura 1984 Vintage honours the connection to the writer George Orwell who wrote the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four whilst staying on the island.
Rebuilt in 1963 to revive a remote community nestled off the West Coast of Scotland, Jura has one road, one pub, one shop and one distillery which creates a uniquely crafted mix of whiskies completely unlike any others.
Willie Cochrane, Jura Distillery Manager said: “Every good malt whisky has a story to tell and Jura’s tale is particularly unique. We’re delighted to add another exciting chapter with the release of this extraordinary limited edition vintage. Jura 1984 Vintage is an uncompromising addition to our range in homage to the island’s most distinguished guest. 1984 is certainly a year to remember.”
