Jura

Isle of Jura   10yr old   40% abv

The Jura distillery was built origionaly in the early 1800s near to a cave where it is said, ‘the water of life’ was ditilled illegally from the 1600. Due to a land dispute it fell into disrepair in the early 1900s, and was resurected again in in the early part of 1960. It was one of the main constituent parts of MacKinlay blends. George Orwell wrote his famed novel “1984” on Jura, which, if he inbibed lots of the local ‘refreshment’, might explain a few things! It has been said that Jura may be hard to get to, but as those who’ve been there will testify, it’s a place that’s even harder to leave – the same might be said of it’s whisky!

Tobermory

Mull   10yr old   40% abv

This is from the Isle of Mull’s only distillery and was started in 1798, by a local Merchant, initially it was known as Ledaig (also a bottling from the distillery). The two whiskies are quite different and distinct.

The distillery has gone through a mixed history; it closed in 1837 and opened again in 1878, and it was closed in the 1930s as much to do with the depression, as with the prohibition era in the USA. It re-opened again in 1971 after an absence of 40 or so years (at one stage it was used to store cheese in). The distillery still found it hard going with it’s warehouses converted into flats in the 80s. But it survived long enough for Burns Stewart to buy it, and would now seem to be securing it’s place on the ‘whisky map’.

It is used in the production of Black Bottle and Scottish Leader.

The maturation is now done at the Deanston Distillery (near Stirling) which is owned by the same company.

The whisky is distilled from unpeated barley, so it has a light nose with a little peat but a hint of smoke, li oak and a peppery palet with a smooth finish. (Anytime)
