All about making whisky
A must have LMDW“ In a blind tasting it is impossible to tell the difference between peat from Jura and peat from Islay. Hardly surprising you might think, given that there is less than a kilometre between the two islands. More seriously, this Jura reveals a very generous, mellow, marine peatiness, which can already be glimpsed in the Superstition version. With Prophecy, Jura is without doubt the only Scottish single malt capable of offering a range with such a wide aromatic palette. A highly unusual expression, exclusively imported and distributed on the French market by La Maison du Whisky.
A little after 1700, the Campbells of Jura drove away an old prophetess, despite the fact that she was renowned for her wisdom. By way of revenge, she foretold that the last Campbell would leave the island destitute and blind in one eye, with his few belongings in a cart pulled by a single white horse. The prophecy came true in 1938, when Charles Campbell, having lost the sight of one eye in the First World War, fell on hard times and led his white horse down to the pier for the last time. Like Jura itself, Prophecy is a whisky impregnated with such stories: each drop recounts a different legend.

Linked only to Islay by a mini-ferry, the distillery is probably one of the most isolated in Scotland. It’s therefore no surprise that its single malt is so easily identifiable, its isolation giving it its own character marked by heart-warming and exotic sensations. Only very lightly peated, Jura has a freshness of mentholated pear that goes hand-in-hand with its malty and salty notes in its 10 and 16 year old expressions. To compete with its neighbour Islay, Jura also began producing a very peaty single malt: Superstition. Find out more
