What's in a name? Isle of Jura Prophecy whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Isle of Jura Prophecy whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Some peat, aniseed, oily, dry, pungent.
Palate: Smoky and dry, a muscular, powerful Jura with notes of nutmeg, cardamom, sea spray. Coal tar.
Finish: Good length, with punchy, dry peat smoke and dry herbal notes.
Very special. Peaty moderately complex, a world to explore. I love it.
Delicious songle malt.
It looks like the paps did have an ace up there sleeve. Very nice dram indeed. A peated Jura whisky lovely and well balanced. A mixture of spiced and smoke. A lingering finish that no other Jura whisky had before.
An aquired taste for new tasters of Single Malt. I really like the aftertaste a lot, it lingers forever.
Perfect mix of peaty and sweet for confused drinkers like I who enjoy both ends of the scotch spectrum. Not as dry as the classic Islay malts, but every bit as powerful. Surprisingly sweet nose gives way to intense smoke flavors very reminiscent of Lagavulin, minus some seaweed and salt. Amazingly long finish that you can revive by taking long deep breaths through your nose. This is remarkable.
For my taste this one is better than any other Jura. Good, balanced, spicy and smoky enough to drop that oaky oilyness I hate on Juras or Dalmores. Do not forget to try Longrow CV and Port Charlotte if you like this one. Povilas
I like my peaty scotches and up until now Taliskers has been my firm favourite in my drinks cupboard, however now there is a challenger. Prophecy has an interesting nose not unlike others in the same group, but what really sets this aside from the rest is the intense warmth and smoke which lingers on the pallet like a smouldering peat fire with hints of aniseed after the first rush of cardamom and iodine. If iconic scotches then this one has to find a spot in your heart.
This tastes like shit, I'd give it a miss..
Very interesting dram to discover! Go for it.
