Jura 10 1980s

Jura 10 Year Old from 1980s (75cl, 40%)

Although an important constituent of many blends, Jura has long been bottled as a single malt. An 8 year old expression was intoruced in 1974, eventually being replaced by this 10 year old by Invergordon Distillers in the mid-1980s.

The Isle of Jura is one of the most isolated in the Hebridean archipelago, and by all logical accounts an unusual place to build a distillery. However, originally built in 1810 the historic site was re-opened in the 1960s by two local estate owners, in part to provide jobs to what was a declining population at the time. The rebuilding of the distillery was back by blenders, Charles Mackinlay & Co, so like Bruichladdich, despite the island being covered in peat, it produced an un-peated spirit to meet the needs of their blends. This continued into the 1990s when Whyte & Mackay (now under the ownership of Philippines-based "Emperador INC") became its owners, although they did eventually introduce some peated malt to their distilling, launching the Jura Superstition in 2003.
