Whyte & Mackay has lined up the launch of a new 30-year-old single malt Scotch whisky for its Jura brand.
Standing Stone is named in commemoration of 'The Bay of the Protecting Rocks’, a 12-foot obelisk on Jura believed to be around 3,000 years old.
Jura distillery has added a 30 year old single malt whisky to its collection.
Called the Standing Stone, or ‘Camas an Staca’ in Gaelic, the new expression takes its name from the largest of Jura's eight standing stones. Known as ‘The Bay of the Protecting Rocks’ this imposing 12 foot obelisk is reputedly all that remains of a stone circle laid some 3,000 years ago by the earliest Diurachs to appease the spirits.
The iconic Jura bottle is presented in a beautiful display case that opens its doors to showcase the bottle and reveal the story of the whisky. Meticulously detailed, the bottle is in-filled with copper wax, with a matching metal plaque.
Jura ‘Camus an Staca’ will be available for purchase in selected whisky stores across the world from December at RRP £350 per 70cl.
The seductive nuances of sandalwood, tuberose, lime and spicy patchouli soon usher in hints of vanilla, Java coffee, tangerine and crushed Ogen melon. Whispers of sea spray, spicy apple and honeyed figs linger in the background.
Fleshy oranges, tangy liquorice, coconut and sweet pineapple are followed by orange rind, black cherries, dark toffee and sun dried raisins.
Jura distillery manager, Willie Cochrane said; “The standing stones have mysteriously stood the test of time on the island, so it’s only fitting that we create an aged whisky in their honour.
The whisky’s long maturation in American white oak gives the spirit a quiet serenity, whilst its three years spent finessing in the finest Oloroso Sherry butts from Gonzalez Byass gives this spirit a commanding finish.”
