“70cl / 44.0% – Jura’s new 30 year old was nicknamed after the Standing Stone (the Carnas an Staca) – the name of the Isle of Jura’s eight standing stones. These are the remains of an ancient stone circle which was built by the Diurachs around three millennia ago. The whisky comes impeccably presented with a lovely copper-adorned bottle and presentation case.”
Nothing moves fast on the isle of Jura, but there’s one aspect of life here that stays the same above all others. The Camas an Staca is Jura’s largest standing stone and its stately grandeur is the inspiration for this bold, rare 30 year old. Its monumental flavour couldn’t exist without the island’s pure spring water, clean air and generations of tradition: sometimes moving slowly is a good thing.
This Camas an Staca bottle is encased in a beautiful box that opens its doors to reveal the story of the whisky and its namesake stone. With this kind of attention to detail and presentation, this malt makes a stunning gift.
An intense blend of Morello cherry, plum jam and earthy allspice
