If you’re in Asia and especially in Taiwan – you do not want to miss this! In doing what it does best, Jura Whisky has launched its latest edition – a new sherry finished 12 Years Old single malt for exclusive launch in Taiwan. Part of the brand’s permanent signature series, the spirit is finished using the finest Spanish Sherry casks to deliver a fine and rich concoction.
Described as ‘vibrant and full of character’, the whisky is distilled using Jura’s extraordinarily tall stills. It is matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in premium hand-selected Oloroso Sherry casks from Jerez, Spain. It houses satiating aromas of chocolate, walnut, and citrus fruit with flavors of smoked honey, salted bananas, and brown sugar.
Commenting on the golden-hued spirit, Gregg Glass, Whisky Maker & Blender at Whyte & Mackay, remarked, “The classic style of Jura evokes the early years of modern distillation at the distillery following its reopening in 1963; a time when our tall stills and unpeated malt created a character full of fruit and vibrancy. It is this distinctive style which we wanted to bring to the Taiwanese market on an exclusive basis, demonstrating our commitment to introducing innovative new whiskies in Asia.”
Priced at 1050 NT$ or USD 35 (approx.), the Jura 12 Years Old Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky is now available for sale throughout Taiwan.
