Jura Paps collection

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Isle of Jura - Jura Paps whiskyIn June 2009, Jura Distillery launched a limited edition of 3 single malts inspired by the Paps of Jura mountains that dominate the skyline of the island.

The trio is 15 years old and finished in different types of wine casks.

  • Jura Paps ‘Beinn An Oir’
    Mountain of Gold: Pinot Noir finish
  • Jura Paps ‘Beinn A’Chaolais’
    Mountain of Sound: Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Jura Paps ‘Beinn Shiantaidh’ 
    The Sacred Mountain: Barolo finish 

Only 1366 bottles are released, signed by Master Distiller Willie Cochrane. If you buy the full set (€ 300), there is a fancy case that holds the three individual boxes. Stay tuned for reviews of the set.

  • john marrinan: That is true, but to all intents and purposes a score of 87 is the same as a score of 90. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the maniacs scored it the
  • WhiskyNotes: It's not so much a matter of trusting a score as it is a matter of being able to relate to it.
