    A 19 year old "The Paps" from Isle of Jura in a glass. With a PX finish and decent 45.6% by volume it shows a nice consistency and a great color - unfortunately colored.
    Fortunately, its inner values prove to be more reliable and the inclined connoisseur can look forward to a rich sherry whisky with a pleasant freshness.

      The first time you smell it, a heavy sweetness and pleasant sherry scent. This is followed by slightly sour fruit notes: red currants, rhubarb and raspberries. A spicy component of dark wood and young spruce tips is added. Roasted peanuts and toffee make for a round and balanced impression.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Full and oily with a whole bouquet of fruit flavors: cherries, strawberries, figs, plus rich sherry flavors as well as mint and white pepper.
      A very lush bouquet of aromas unfolds on the palate and always reveals new nuances. Certainly a whisky that you don't only have once in a glass.

      Fresh mint cools the palate, followed by a slight dryness. The saliva flow then begins and the fruity sweetness rises again and ends in a long finish.

    'The Paps' means the three mountains of the island of Jura. 'The Holy Mountain, the Mountain of Sound and the Mountain of Gold'. These tower for miles over the Jura landscape.
    This single malt also belongs to the 'Sherry Collection' series. It was matured in American white oak bourbon casks and finished in sherry casks.
    Strong aroma of ginger cake and vanilla.
