Whisky Reviews for Isle of Jura Superstition

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 83 points Administrator

    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.

  4. maltaholic scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Surprisingly good!
    • Nose
      A nice, fruity nose. I feel more like sherry than smoke. But also some spices in the aroma, marzipan, nutty.
    • Taste
      Fruity even in the beginning, heavy sherry, chocolate, juniper, wet wood.
    • Finish
      On the finish rather spicy, medium in length.

    • Nose
      Orange, marzipan and some smoke
    • Taste
      light smoke, marzipan and cinnamon
    • Finish
      the smoke disappears relatively quickly, it remains a pepper note

  7. Blo scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Honest and unpretentious, a good intro to those who are not fans of too powerful peat in the pure style of Islay.
    • Nose
      Very light peat farm, with in the distance some yellow fruits and malt. Toffee and a little coffee too. A little shy but not unpleasant at all!
    • Taste
      Malt, mixed cereals type muesli, a peat a little more present than the nose. Quite simple but relatively convincing despite the reduction.
    • Finish
      Pretty short.

    • Taste

      Medium. Oak, vanilla, getting dryer.

  9. Andytka3 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    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.
