Owned by independent bottlers Whyte & Mackay (along with Dalmore distillery). The distillery was built in 1962 and is the only distillery on the Isle of Jura, situated across a narrow strait from Islay. Process water comes from Loch a’Bhaile-Mhargaidh (the Market Loch). While the water flows through a great deal of peat, the whisky itself is not smoked and does not carry much peat character.
Overripe peach, salted caramel, black tea. More sweetness with dried apricot, vanilla candy chews. Yellow cherry and golden raisin in the finish. Tastes like a fine blend, very smooth, but not intresting.
