ISLE OF JURA SUPERSTITION
The Isle of Jura is populated by less than 200 people (and a couple thousand red deer) who are known to be to be prone to superstition. To celebrate the living history and suspect beliefs of their neighbors, Superstition was created by blending an older, fine, creamy malt [21 years old] with a younger, robust peated malt [13 Year old] – the effect is mesmeric! The nose is direct and structured with the sultry finesse of heather honey, smoky toffee, dates, cocoa, golden raisin, fern, oily nuts, camp-fire and confect with a calm under-current of maritime influence. The flavors follow suit and add spice, pine and vegetal peat as the sweet creaminess of the mouth-feel leisurely gives to then resolve delicately on salt and oily walnut (or maybe flax seed). The finish is buttery, oiled, rich, lightly smoky and mixed with lovely herbs and spices. This is arresting, attractive equanimous single malt in a very lovely package. Enjoy this neat meditating on the enigmas of life.
Are you Superstitious? Then there is a contest for you, here. . .
