A very peated edition from Isle of Jura, Prophecy is made from a selection of old and rare Jura whiskies – very interesting indeed. Jura Prophecy is inspired by the prophecy of the one-eyed Campbell, the last of an island family whose fate was foretold by an old wise seer from Jura. The islanders or diurachs in Scottish Gaelic, believe that it brings good fortune to knock on wood before they drink a dram or two.
Dark toffee and a warehouse full of peat smokeâ€¦this is the smell of the islands on a cold spring evening with peat fires burning in every homeâ€¦ then the spice of cardamom, hot wellies and a hint of horse sweat. Sweet, oily vanilla on the tongue, then loads of black pepper, with spice and hot tar on the finish. A tiny dash of water releases the barley and sweetens the vanillas.
