Jura 37 Years Old 1976 Platinum Old and Rare description

Hunter Laing’s Old & Rare series is what it says it is: a deluxe range of single cask single malts of exceptional quality, bottled at natural strength and without chill-filtration. The bottles are also presented in wooden boxes.This 37 years old is ‘traditional’ and unpeated in style.

At 7.7 metres, the stills are the second tallest in Scotland (the tallest being Glenmorangie). They are ‘lantern’ shaped with pinched waists, like old-fashioned paraffin-lamp glasses, and the pots are very broad – all making for increased copper contact and a purer, lighter spirit.

Polished rosewood. Nose drying with slight prickle. A rich, slightly oily aroma, with sweet tobacco, polished leather and almond praline, on a base of oloroso sherry with a whiff of dry seaweed. Complex and mellow. The taste is hot, sweet and tannic, with canvas and wood-spice. Water tames it, makes the oily note more fragrant and the taste more salty.

Knowledge Bar

Willie Cochrane, Jura’s Distillery Manager, said of this whisky : “Around 95% of the casks we use are first-fill American oak ex-Bourbon barrels from Jim Beam and Heaven Hill Distilleries in Kentucky. The remainder are a combination of Limousin oak barriques and Spanish oak ex-sherry butts. “In the past we filled a lot more butts – and there are still a few lurking in the warehouses, ear-marked by Richard Paterson, our Master Blender, for future special bottlings! “We began to use first-fill barrels about 10 years ago - especially for single malt bottlings. Previously we were using mainly refill hogsheads, and since then we have been re-racking these older casks into the first-fill barrels – currently at the rate of 150-175 per week. This has made a huge difference to the quality of our single malt.”
