Isle of Jura Superstition Bottling Note

A single malt made up of different ages, 13 percent of which is said to be heavily peated... It turns out Stevie was wrong, Superstition is the way!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Initial gristy cereal gives way to evocative smoke and heady malt. It’s quite sweet and creamy, and reminds us of Chantilly cream.

Palate: Sweet and porridge-like. A cereal fest on the tongue, with hints of white pepper and black forest honey with hot buttered toast. Light and oily.

Finish: Medium length with cocoa and rice paper with hints of honey and spice on the tail.

Isle of Jura Superstition Reviews

Delicious. Truly delicious.

I had this for the first time on an Emirates flight and after one taste I had to buy it on land! The deep amber colour alone is beautiful and it smells sweet and smoky. The initial taste is also subtly sweet with a slight smoke . It finishes with a lovely fruity/chocolate flavour that leaves you wanting more. The only thing that stops this from being 5/5 is that certain elements are a tad too subtle and I have had better. However, this is a strong whisky by all accounts.

Pleasant and warming.

Very nice slightly peated malt which I have enjoyed for some years sadly the Jura Prophecy has taken its place in 1st position.

Comfortable and warming.

Love it. Comforting, enough peat and body to warm without burning. This was one for the narrowboat, to rock me to peace with as the night cooled down...

Spice and Liquorice

Trying this again after a while. Immediate spice and chilli. As spicy as a Glenmorangie La Santa. Slightly medicinal as befits a neighbour of Islay rather than an Islay. Mellowing after 15m. Some liquorice. A winters dram. Classically Islands.

Pleasant but not much personality...

Took a long time to like this. Better with some oxidation. So little peat in not sure it's worth mentioning. Accurate tasting notes from Master of Malt. Very cereal heavy with honey, pleasant but not interesting. Wouldn't purchase again and not upset it's been discontinued. Hopefully the new range is more interesting.

Never fails to please - very drinkable

This is one of my partner's familiar favourites which never fails to please - very drinkable.

Impressed, finally!

While none of the core range Jura whiskies wowed me when I tasted them all at the distillery, I am convinced that sometimes a dram is just not enough to get to appreciate a whisky.
So I bought a liter of this!
On the nose was maltiness, strong cereal, spice and dried fruit.
On the palate-Leathery, smoke. The smokiness of the peat emerges after a few seconds and is delicious. After a few drops of water, the palate is creamier, with a woodier finish.
Medium-long, spicy finish.

The greatest

Wonderful. Bought my first about 3 years ago, but not at its current price,nearer that quoted from Waitrose below. So good a few drops of water makes no difference.

Will try more from Jura

New to whiskeys, my first peat and found it enjoyable. Preferred with a couple drops of water.

Meh

So so , nothing special . Nose : smokey, caramel . Taste: smooth(if thats a taste?) toffie , oak, a liitle smoke , alcohol and than the taste fades away quickly. I will drink up my bottle and than forgett about it.
