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.

Winner of 4 spirit awards

Reviews for Jura Superstition
Tell me we’re I can purchase more Isle of Jura, “Superstition”!
Superstition is by far one of the best single malt scotches I’ve ever enjoyed. My father-In Law loves 15 yr old Glennlevitt but he’s starting to change to Isle of Jura Superstition. We just can’t find it in the Midwest in the United States. Hope they can find a way to deliver his excellent Scotch to Us! I bought the last 4 bottles I was able to grab from a Liquor distributor in St. Louis Missouri about eight months ago.

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.

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.
