Jura Single Malt whisky recently released their latest addition to their product range in the shape of Jura Rum Cask Finish, a fruity, exotic single malt bringing the lively taste of the tropical to its range of whiskies!
Initially matured in American White Oak Ex Bourbon barrels, the spirit went on to conclude its maturation journey in hand selected Caribbean Rum Casks to create a smooth, creamy and fruity finish.
Our Jura Cask Editions have been created to showcase cask types in partnership with the Jura distillery character. The flavours offer interesting interpretations of our classic style, making them ideal for those looking to explore new flavours and finishes.
With Jura Rum Cask Finish, the taste experience has been enhanced through the finish to create a beautifully tropical and fruity result. In making this release, we wanted to share a Single Malt that’s easy drinking and great value with compelling character!

Jura Rum Cask Finish has launched initially in the UK, available in Tesco stores at £45 for 1 litre.
So, what did I think? Here are my tasting notes …
Tasting Notes – Jura Rum Cask Finish (40%)
Nose: Hints of tropical fruits which steadily grows. There’s also vanilla, caramel, fudge and sweet muscovado sugar.
Palate: Sherbet sweet with vanilla, toffee and tropical flavours which start to make a slow appearance along the way.
Finish: Smooth finish with growing, warming pepper, tropical fruit hints and sweet vanilla. Moderately dry finish.
Overall: A great dram, the tropical flavours made me want to sing “Here Comes The Sun” over and over again while I was sampling!
And just to cap it all I also received some Pineapple pieces with which to try a bit of taste pairing: The result? Very nice – the two go together very well – a whisky tropical paradise in fact!
