Description and review by Daniel & Rex in the Whisk(e)y Vault
The people of Jura are superstitious.
From the prophecy of the one-eyed Campbell to an aversion to cutting peat before May, age-old island beliefs resonate to this day. Drawing on Jura’s finest older malts and spring-peated younger whiskies, Jura Superstition is a tribute to the people, the traditions and the mystical heritage that make Jura island life unique.
Colour – Deep intense mahogany with glittering sun rays
Nose – Firm and positive, yet forcibly mellow. Strong accents of phenolic aromas. Rich, sensual nuances of honey and marzipan.
Palate – Spice, honey, pine and peat aromas make a dramatic impact, the long years in oak casks have tempered and tamed this mystic spirit creating a long, lingering and tantalising aftertaste.
Lightly peated with hints of smoke and spice
Tastes of tangy cinnamon, ginger spice and honey with whispers of salty sea spray, rich coffee and roasted chestnuts
Deep intense mahogany with glittering sun rays
Firm and positive, yet forcibly mellow, strong accents of phenolic aromas, rich, sensual nuances of honey and marzipan
Perfect for Summer BBQs and Winter walking

IWSC Awards Tasting Note: The floral rose sweetness of Turkish Delight, with the addition of honeycomb and aniseed, makes for a deliciously approachable yet well structured malt.
