Jura Scotch Single Malt Superstition 750ml

Jura Scotch Single Malt Superstition

The color is deep intense mahogany with glittering sun rays. Smell is firm and positive, yet forcibly mellow. Strong accents of phenolic aromas. Rich, sensual nuances of honey and marzipan. On the palate spice, honey, pine and peat aromas make a dramatic impact, the long years in oak casks have tempered and tamed this mystic spirit creating a long, lingering and tantalizing aftertaste.

Even though the distillery didn't open until 1810, the people of Jura were entitled to distil whisky for personal consumption, until a ban was introduced in 1781. As legend has it, Laird Archibald Campbell awoke in the middle of the night to see the ghostly figure of an old woman hovering over his bed. She berated him over the lack of the golden liquid on the island. It was this apparition that persuaded him to reverse his punitive measure and erect a distillery at an old smugglers' cave in the hamlet of Craighouse in 1810. But the distillery fell into disrepair and it wasn't until the 1960s when, in a bid to entice new inhabitants to the island, two local estate owners Robin Fletcher and Tony Riley-Smith rebuilt the distillery, employing architect William Delme-Evans. By 1963 their work was complete; they had introduced taller stills allowing the distillery to create an eclectic mix of malts, a feature that continues to help differentiate Jura from its island neighbors.

Very different, which I consider great, as many scotches are the same as every other one. It is nice to have a unique thing once and a while.

The honey in this one is far too potent. It overwhelms any potential complexity that might exist. It's almost syrupy. I suppose one can't expect much more for the price. Drinkable, but simply not my dram of whiskey.

Speaking of price. You can get a 12 yr Caol Ila or 10 yr Talisker for a similar price, with far superior results.
