Jura Superstition

Jura SuperstitionPlease take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience. as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.

Colour:

Bright gold.

Nose:

Light peat and smoke, sweet.

Palate:

Creamy, lightly smoked, sweet, chocolate, hazelnuts – Ferrero Rocher.

Finish:

Long, smokey, nutty end.

Overall:

Like liquid Ferrero Rocher. A completely different drink from Jura Origin and one I thoroughly enjoy – to the point I have two bottles of it in my collection.

 

Classic Rock Match:

Following a post by @the_whisky_lady entitled ON THE ROCKS: Match Your Whisky With Rock Classics I’m going to try and match my tastings with a classic rock song.

For this dram I’m going with Howlin Wolf – Superstitious.

JURA SUPERSTITION

Lightly peated with hints
of smoke

For all of you taste gurus out there, you may pick out hints of honey and pine, as the balance of peated and unpeated spirits is matured to perfection in ex-Bourbon casks. The finest whiskies go into this mysterious bottle, so there’s a different flavour to explore with every drop.

  1. Hi Grimm, I had this last night at the Multnomah Whisky Library (private club with limited walk-ins – and a couple hundred whiskies). I’d agree overall on your impressions, its quite good. I got more medicinal on the palate, but the sweetness made me think (oddly enough) of a young Talisker 25, which I’ve I tried previously. A bit young on the finish, some raw tannins there. But overall, really satisfying. Took me an hour to finish it, slow sips.

    1. I don’t think I could make it last an hour, not without a top up at any rate! Glad you enjoyed it though.
