Isle of Jura Superstition Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1010394 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 From the Isle of Jura comes this lively number, layered with caramel and orange peel. On the palate, it dries out to a spicy, citrusy finish reminiscent of tea and cigar box. Soft in feel. (KN)  (12/2013)

Whisky Advocate

 Amber gold color. Medium bodied and slightly oily. Peaty bonfire aroma and flavors, complemented by a creamy caramel maltiness. Subtle notes of brine, seaweed, and a hint of pear fruit spice things up a bit. Gently dry, moderately smoky finish, with teasing sea salt notes...I have always wondered what a peat smoke infused Isle of Jura whisky would taste like. I was also concerned that too much peat smoke could dominate this whisky's flavor profile. Fortunately, this hasn't happened. The peat smoke is certainly evident, but the Jura character comes through too. One extra bonus: it's bottled at 45%, which kicks the flavors up a notch. (JH, Fall 2003)

K&L Notes

To the north of Islay, just off Scotland's west coast, lies Jura, the Herbridean island that fewer that 200 people and many, many red deer call home. Superstition is a union of two Jura malt whisky styles, one bold, strong and peated, the other warm and delicate. This innovative malt Scotch whisky is created from the marriage of traditional Islay style peated barley and a selection of aged malts. The result is a first in malt whisky and a sensational new taste experience for drinkers. Its intriguing name, Superstition, is derived from the beliefs of the people of the Hebrides, a group of Scottish islands steeped in myth and legend.

I've liked the Isle of Jura Superstition in the past. It shows just a hint of spicy peat smoke over a nose of candy apple, roasted nuts, and browning pears. There's more smoke and heat than the unpeated Jura 10, for certain, but it's as distinctly oily and palate-coating as most other expressions from this isolated distillery. In a way: if you had a committee meeting of Dalmore, Bunnhabhain, Old Pulteney, and Aberlour, with Highland Park lurking in the doorway now and then, and maybe just a picture of Lagavulin on the wall for inspiration, they might all come up with the Isle of Jura Superstition.
