Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Jura Superstition

Jura Superstition –  If you travel to the remote Isle of Jura off the west coast of Scotland, you will hear tales of strange customs and legends.  The bottle containing this fine malt is decorated with the ancient Ankh symbol which is rumored to bring good fortune, especially if you wear your lucky socks .  I can assure you at least of good tastings if you pour a dram of this spicy and lightly peated whisky…so maybe the Ankh is a good omen.  The rocky soil and heathery peat each contribute to the subtle flavors of honey and a crisp woody note .  Neat is the only way to appreciate this special single malt and you might want to avoid any black cats or full moon evenings for your first taste.  I found that the finish was long and sweet with a slight smokiness .  Highly recommended with an 8.5 rating , just not on  Friday the 13thJura B-postLR
