So why the superstition and not a different Jura, a whisky friend of mine has long since recommended the superstition as the best one to go for when you factor in the price and the experience on offer, obviously tasting whisky is a very subjective thing to each person so you can only take that advise so far. He said avoid the entry level Origin completely as he felt it was too young.
First thing to note is i love the shape of the bottle which is unique to Jura whisky, it has a cork stopper and comes in a presentation box. This whisky is bottled at 43% (alcohol by volume) and does have caramel colourant in it.
My personal tasting notes
Nose Neat: Instant sherry with mild spices, raisins and faint smoke
Taste Neat: Initially you get a nip on the tongue from the alcohol which quickly recedes. I then got white pepper, lemon zest, honey and smoke with a mild sherry note in the background
After adding a teaspoon of water and waiting 10 minutes:
Nose: The sherry intensifies on the nose and so does the raisin note
Taste: Much better now water has been added, Sweet Sherry with honey and a lemon tang remaining in the background, smoke has weakened.
Finish: Very spicy with the sherry note lingering in the background along with the smoke.
Verdict: I'm more than happy with this whisky, it's not the most complex whisky known to man but it doesn't claim to be. With water this whisky really does settle down and the sweet sherry note really does pronounce itself. I intend to purchase more when i see it on offer
What a wonderful decision. Superstition is dangerously quaffable. Although it certainly has significant flavours of both peat and smoke, these are wrapped in a very well rounded experience that has an almost sweet finish. A single ice cube or teaspoon of water is more than enough to bring the full palate out in gentle warmth that has absolutely no edges. While it may lack a little of the character so prevalent in Islay whiskies, it is however still full of flavour and makes a wonderfully enjoyable after dinner (or before) drink.
