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.

  • Jorn: I agree, the first expressions tend to go up in value the most, - ofcourse -, but do you really think the Bowmore DC 2 will sink below 150,00 euro? N
  • WhiskyNotes: I tend to disagree. I would just wait for n°III and make sure you inform your favourite retailer that you want one beforehand. Buying a hyped product
  • Jorn: It's worth 150 allright, but mainly from a collector's point of view. That's where the market is. Like precious little stamps (Nothing wrong with that
