Just a few meters far from Islay, there is an small island with just one hotel, one road and one distillery. It is called Jura.
Being so near Islay one could think that Diurach would embrace a similar style but nothing is most far from truth. With an style on their own Jura whiskies are more citrusy and spicier than Islay single malts although they have also their small measure of peat.
As Jura distillery is going to release really soon a new expresion of their 30 years old whisky: Camas An Staca and they were so nice to send me a sample I decided to retaste the whole range. My previous contact with Jura whiskies was a bit disappointing and after talking with other bloggers about it I came to the conclusion that my miniatures could be corrupted. So I ordered a new set of samples, this time from Master of Malt and proceeded to the tasting as it should be.
So here is the tasting.
