Authors' Series Jura 1992 Washington Irving description
Part of Hunter Laing & Co's First Editions Authors' Series of single cask releases honouring pioneering writers, this Island single malt was distilled on the isle of Jura in February 1992 before being filled to refill hogshead HL14223 to mature for a quarter of a century. Only 248 bottles were produced in October 2017, each one at a natural cask strength of 51.7% abv and presented in a beautifully crafted leather case emblazoned with gold lettering.From this golden coloured whisky you can expect caramel, oranges, boiled sweets and malt notes on the nose. On the palate it reveals peaches, liquorice, mint and cereal while the finish is long and slightly spicy.Washington Irving (1783-1859) was an American short story writer, biographer, essayist and historian. Perhaps best known for The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Irving was among the first American authors to achieve acclaim in Europe, becoming the United States' first internationally best-selling author.
