Jura / Douglas Laing

Jura 8yr Provenance (Douglas Laing) Review

Jura 8yr Provenance (Douglas Laing) This 2008-2016 Jura 8 year old from Douglas Laings Provenance range is great value for money and anyone who knows me knows that a bottle of this was always going to be on my must buy list, but please don’t let that stop you reading.

This is an interesting dram with lots going on, yes the distillery is one which draws a lot of the marmite comments (love it or hate it) but it’s got such character, juicy fruity notes, oily and coastal, something a bit waxy and even some lactic notes.

For me this is a really good example of how the Distillery should be bottling Jura, and i love it.

If you’re a fan of Jura head to Master of Malt (or your nearest specialist) now to buy one.

Tasting Notes & Details


Oily, coastal, seashells and slight hints of engine oil, tangy, plum skins, something a little prickly, a little mature cheddar, some beeswax and mr sheen furniture polish


quite salty and coastal up front, crushed seashells and olive oil, salty olives, fruit skins, white seedless grapes and apple sin, tangy citrus fruit peels


sweet but growing tangier by the minute
