    Beautiful, maritime smoker. Will be pretty dry in the end, but the smoke and tobacco note is really nice in the end.
    • Nose
      First, a rather youthful peat note, but it quickly vanishes. The whisky is now clearly full in the nose. Peat, without being killed by the peat, sweet, possibly sherry, harbor, a bit dirty, salt and sewing machine oil. A great, slightly more complex smoker's nose.
    • Taste
      pleasant drinking, but still good start. First salt, then peat, then pepper, with some oak and a subtle sweetness.
    • Finish
      Pepper, and quite a bit. Then peat and smoke notes, dry oak.

  6. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The colour is amber. The nose is strongly peaty with creosote, salt, grass, seaweeds, white fruits and perfume notes. The palate has notes of peated smoke, salt, white fruits, oak and grass. The finish is long with spices, peated smoke, white fruits, oak, vanilla and grass notes. Prophecy is a well balanced peated whisky. It’s closer to its neighbours from Islay, but with Jura soul. I like it.
