Insider knowledge: Isle of Jura Prophecy whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Isle of Jura Prophecy whiskey, as opposed to 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.

I want some of what these guys were smoking. This is to lagavulin what a backstreet bj is to a night with nigella Lawson. It gets the job done, but you feel dirty afterwards and there's nothing to bury your nose in. Thin, wispy, spices but if this is heavily pleated, I can only assume these particular Scotsmen are as tight with their mud as they are with their cash.

Smells like the wifes knickers, (very fishy), tastes of heaven.
