This Island single malt was distilled at the eponymous Jura distillery, the only distillery on the Hebridean island. This expression has been matured in American white oak bourbon barrels and enhanced in hand-selected sherry casks that previously held a 30-year-old Pedro Ximenez sherry from a single estate Jerez bodega. Part of the Travel Retail exclusive range, The Loch is named for the distillery's water source, Market Loch, which sits 1000 feet above sea level.
A small portion of peated malt lends a subtle smoke to the sweet bourbon cask influence and the richness of the PX casks. It opens rich and sweet with thick treacle on the nose. The palate brings praline and baked apple with a touch of coffee, before a fruity note in the spicy finish.
