If you are afraid of these 'peat monsters' from Islay, this robust Single Malt could be something for you: Isle of Jura Superstition is advertised as 'lightly peated' whisky. Unfortunately, it bears no age statement, although the 43% ABV definitely help to bring out the flavor of this rather young malt. On the nose, you can find delicate peat smoke, toffee and hints of marzipan. The taste is mildly spicy and peppery, and yet sweet with honey and cinnamon. Overall, it's quite a two-dimensional and artificial Island whisky - but with a decent roundness and complexity.

Nose

Eine schöne, fruchtige Nase. 

Ich verspüre eher Sherry als Rauch. Aber auch einiges an Gewürzen im Aroma, Marzipan, nussig.

Taste

Fruchtig auch im Antritt, heftig Sherry, Schokolade, Wacholder, nasses Holz.

Finish

Im Abgang eher würzig, mittellang.

Comments

Überraschend gut!

Nose
Très légère tourbe fermière, avec au loin quelques fruits jaunes et du malt. Du toffee et un peu de café aussi.

Un peu timide mais pas désagréable du tout !

Taste

Du malt, des céréales mélangées type muesli, une tourbe un peu plus présente qu'au nez. Assez simple mais relativement convaincant malgré la réduction.

Finish

Assez courte.

Comments

Honnête et sans prétention, une bonne intro à ceux qui ne sont pas fans de la tourbe trop puissante dans le pur style d'Islay.

Bottles are meant to be opened and tasted, not stared in a shelve !

N- Whiff of exhaust fume, follow by lasting burnt rubber aroma. Layers of dark fruits and warm pancake.

P- Dominant wood, new book. Light texture, spirity. Lime peel and wee of sweet lingers, lack balance.

F- Medium, smokes arises and throat heating.
