Provenance "The Coastal Collection" is a limited edition Single Cask series of four bottlings honouring Scotland’s Whisky islands and the seas that surround them. The Collection's second release is this Jura 12 Years Old Single Cask bottling which has spent its life maturing in a refill butt. Just 383 bottles exist globally and, in line with the Douglas Laing philosophy to bottle Scotch Whisky “as natural as it gets”, the series is bottled at a high alcohol strength of 48% and proudly offered without colouring or chill-filtration.
The nose shows home baked dark fruit pie with later gentle spices and juicy barley.Its earlier Sherry still shows through on the palate, plus muscovado sugar and syrup.The finish is fabulously spiced now with later vanilla biscuit and honey.
