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!
