REGION Isle of Jura
COLOR Dark amber
NOSE Smokey, hints of ginger and pine.
PALATE Has a bite to it, like a grapefruit. It’s got a spicy quality to it which blends with the smokiness from the peat. Very tasty. You could have this with your cornflakes for breakfast.
FINISH Lovely drawn out finish. It’s the spiciness that stays with you surprisingly, and not the peat.

NOTES I have an idea in my head of what a whisky bottle should look like and this isn’t it at all. It’s a stupid reason but for the longest time I avoided this whisky because the bottle design and the name ‘Superstition’ makes it sound like a perfume by Britney Spears.
I ended up getting this bottle from my brother-in-law Matt for Christmas. And would you believe it, its actually a seriously tasty whisky that is very easy to recommend. It’s got a satisfyingly versatile taste. Roll this dram on your tongue and I guarantee you’ll be able to detect notes of all sorts of different flavours. It’s tasty, leaves an impression and it was my loss for avoiding this brand for so long.
