Jura Paps collection

Posted by: Ruben Luyten 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.

  • sjoerd972: I wish the guys at Bushmills would demand the labels to say "Northern Ireland" so we didn't have to speculate on the booze's origins.
