    A true chameleon - you could not tell from the nose what was coming on the palate. I wish the nose was as complex. It would have been a real stunner. Very good, nonetheless. 
    • Nose
      Nice mellow peat on the nose (not agrressive as the ones from Islay). The nose is a bit closed though, not much happening even with water. Hints of dried fruits (apricot).
    • Taste
      Interesting, this feels really complex on the palate. Very multidimensional - sweet, touch of salt, sour and wood. Spices. More peat then on the nose. Very chewy mouth-feel. 
    • Finish
      Medium. Salt; spices; some peat.

    Not bad. A little "boorish"
    • Nose
      Farm peat, burnt, fruity
    • Taste
      On the palate it is the smoked aromas that stand out

    A great expression!

    Yes, this is good stuff. I will have another
    one, thank you. Nice Jura!
    • Nose
      Like with the Superstion, the nose on this Prophecy is rather
      uneventful. I have some stable scents, cowhide, tar and mild spices like nutmeg
      and aniseed. It takes a few minutes for the fruit to show itself. The dried
      version, undoubtedly the sherry cask influence. Caramelized oranges, hint of choclate. The peat is indeed more prominent
      and rather pleasant. Nice development if
      you give it the time it deserves.
    • Taste
      It is pretty oily and shows quite some peatiness on the palate. The
      fruit now reminds me more of apples and pears. Quite nice, actually. Midpalate,
      it turns dry and peppery. A salty touch makes up for a lot. Towards the end I
      get some citrus. Think a slice of lemon that has been drying a tad long in the
      fridge. A lot of licquorice and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      The finish is clean and turns your mouth completely dry. Peat versus licquorice.

  10. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This is a mixture of casks with different peat levels and peat styles, finished off by a 1989 oloroso sherry butt from Gonzalez Byass. It`s non-chill-filtered but must be colored with caramel :(

    N: little peat, sweet (caramel) and some oranges
    T: smoke, smoked ham, pepper, there comes the peat
    F: briny, pepper, lot`s of oranges and some lakrids

    Tasted next to the Jura Elixir. Nice but not a special dram, just a nice peated Jura. I mean nice because the normal Jura 10 is not my favorite dram. I like the opinion of Willie JJ about the spirit!
