Malt brand Jura has extended its ‘Cask Edition Series’ with the launch Jura Pale Ale Cask Edition.

Available now in stores across the UK, Jura Pale Ale Cask Edition is aimed at beer lovers looking to get into whisky, and whisky lovers wanting to try something a little different.

The new expression is a direct result of the coronavirus pandemic. With many breweries slowing production during lockdown, Jura’s whisky makers, Gregg Glass and Joe Ricketts, collaborated with local craft brewers to source beer casks suited to maturing Jura’s signature flavour profile.

According to the tasting notes, Jura Pale Ale Cask Edition “opens with aromas of honeyed cereal, vanilla spice and hints of pineapple. Bright and fruity on the palate, there are notes of sweet citrus and a subtle, tropical hop character. This is rounded off with vanilla and a smooth and creamy finish.”

At 40%, the whisky is intended to be enjoyed as part of sociable occasions, “ideal for sipping in a beer garden with friends in the sunshine, matched with a blonde or pale ale beer of your preference”.

Jura Pale Ale Cask Edition joins three others in the Cask Editions Series – Jura Winter Edition, Jura Red Wine Cask Edition and Jura Rum Cask Finish.

It has an RSP of £35 and comes in 70cl format with an accompanying tube.
