Review - Jura 21 years old Tide

This whisky forms part of the core range from the island distillery of Jura. The range was revamped in 2018 and this 21 years old is joined by other age statements at 10, 12 and 18 years old plus three other 'no age statement' expressions - the French Oak, Journey and Seven Wood. The whiskies involved in this 21 years old have followed two different paths - regular unpeated spirit has matured in ex-bourbon casks before a period of finishing in virgin American oak barrels, while rarer peated spirit (which is only made at the distillery for one month each year) has been matured solely in ex-bourbon casks. The two pockets of stock have then been married together to produce the final whisky.

This whiskey is the third release in the Dream Cask series from the Irish pot still brand of Redbreast. The Dream Cask Ruby Port Edition is the first from the brand to be finished in a single ex-Port cask.
