Family-owned independent bottler Douglas Laing has unveiled a Jura 12-year-old single cask as the next bottling in its Coastal Collection, a series of whiskies celebrating the distilling heritage of Scotland’s islands.
The single cask whisky has been matured in a refill oloroso Sherry butt and bottled at a strength of 48% abv.
Fred Laing, chairman of Douglas Laing & Co., said: ‘For this very limited Provenance collection, we have specially selected only four single casks which we believe truly bring to life their maritime heritage.
‘This latest Jura release is a beautiful balance of dark fruits and rich spices from its Sherry butt maturation, alongside that archetypal Jura character.’
Released under the bottler’s Provenance label, only 383 bottles will be available to purchase globally for a price of £44.99.
The whisky is non-chill filtered and has not been coloured by spirit caramel, in line with Douglas Laing’s self-proclaimed philosophy to bottle whiskies ‘as the distiller intended’.
The bottle keeps to the collection’s nautical theme, emblazoned with illustrations of ropes, rock oysters and ‘moody maritime colours’.
