Jura 12 Years Old 2008 Old Particular 13982 Douglas Laing

What they say

From Douglas Laing’s particularly fab Old Particular independent bottling range comes a Jura 12 year old single malt Scotch whisky! This one was distilled back in February 2008 and allowed to rest for a dozen years in a refill hogshead, and then it was bottled in March 2020. Only 348 bottles were produced.

Tasting Notes:

  • Nose: Buttery pastries, rum-soaked raisins and a hint of candied ginger.
  • Palate: Fresh peach, pear drops, mint chocolate, nutmeg and more ginger.
  • Finish: Sweet malt and a hint of honey.

  • Overall Another pleasant under-cooked or rather under-casked Jura. Full of minty buttery toffee and a dollop of vanilla cream for good measure too.
