Isle of Jura 12YO Elixir 700ml
Searching for a flavour sensation that never gets old? Try the endlessly intriguing overtones of crushed almonds, pineapple and fresh roasted coffee, borne of a mix of American white oak and sherry casks. Sip it slowly, and you'll also pick up citrus fruits, dark toffee and warming ginger spice.
The water of Jura has long been believed to possess mystical qualities, owing to a legendary blessing by St Columba nearly 1,500 years ago. The islanders certainly have a history of longevity, with stories of a man who lived to see 180 Christmases in his own home – as an ancient gravestone not far from the Distillery attests. Whether island myth or fact, Diuriachs can certainly control the ageing process when it comes to whisky, so why not drink a drop of Elixir while the night’s still young?
