A union of two Jura malt whisky styles: one bold, strong and peated, the other warm and delicate. Superstition is a unique whisky created from the marriage of traditional Islay style peated barley and a selection of aged malts.

    Fabulous beyond comprehension. It's also pretty good. Unique and daring, with lots of contrasts. A story in every finger. Tasty, but muscular. Go.

    I am not one for strong peaty drinks however superstition hits a good balance of smooth and smoke. One to try if you wish to venture out of the more sweeter drinks and are curious to see if you would enjoy a peaty tipple.

    Probably the best whisky I've ever had. Sweet and smooth, with a pleasant tingle of warmth which gives you a note of honey. Certainly one to sip, a very smooth and flavorful whisky.

    I'm not going to put in all those fancy tasting notes, because everyone is different. I will say however say that this is one smooth dram. I could literally sit on a veranda and drink this bottle all night. Nice easy peat/smoke palate and a great finish. This a bottle that will not last long on a shelf. Love it.

    Toffee and Digestive biscuits on the nose, more of the same plus fudge, honey, Vanilla and a bit of smoke on the palate, smoke and Toffee on the finish. Smooth as you like, lovely dram.

    While l could add clever comments to self promote my views and ability to describe how it taste. For me in short brilliant. If you like to step out of your comfort zone this could be a great journey for you. I hope you also enjoy this Brilliant product.

    I don't care for much peat. Superstition gets it right, as far as I'm concerned. A little smoke, a little oak (?) lingers in the nose. Smooth on the throat. Very nice.

    i think this whisky has an oak like after taste on the woody notes maybe even hickory i also get rasin like sherry notes aswell a few citrus which is odd but not uncommon a well smoked peaty taste to it no need for the caramel colouring added as it would be perect without it overall for its price its not a bad drink certainly i have had worse reminds me very much of johnny walker black label with less smoke

    "Nose" (undiluted) Slight peat, a wee smoke and grass clippings. Wet cedar bushes. Maritime. Do I see a clipper on the horizon? "Palate" (undiluted) A light bodied scotch serving up smooth tastes of angel hair weight peat, light malt and the gentlest of mint and phenolic compounds. Lightly smoked kippers. Do I detect sherry? Yes. Very restrained. "Finish" (undiluted) Ginger, camphor enveloped in mild corona cigar smoke. Becomes a tad medicinal upon repeated sips, but somehow does not prevent me from reaching for more.

    Not as Smokey as islay & not as sweet as spey. Very nice balance.

    A bit too sweet, too smooth, too bland, and has a ridiculously artificial colour. Not as distinctive as the original Jura some years ago. I understand that market segmentation is done to maximise profit, but I feel that Jura's quality has suffered since it was fragmented into so many different sub-brands.

    Really very happy with this. I'm typically a Highland drinker, and prefer full bodied rich chocolate and orange type tasting notes but I also enjoy peat and smoke when the mood strikes. I love how this one gives me the peat and smoke at first, buy then mellows to marzipan and spice, with a bit of raisin in there as well. Really very nice and will definitely buy this one again.

    Definitely smoky, I can taste the barrel and feel the aromas that render its soul to this whisky.

    Quite nice, typical Island bite on the back of the throat. Good taste, honey, wood ash, slight spice, maybe cinnamon. Strange citrus undertone, melon, sherry; raisin, crushed grape. Generally lovely, if it had been given an age statement, wasn''t chill-filtered, bottled at 46%, didn''t have ''fake as fake can be'' caramel E150 colourant added and some of the younger parts of the batch were left out it could have got the full five star whack. But who am I to dictate bottling policy for Whyte & Mackay, it''s not going to happen no matter how much we scream and shout, and we''ll leave it at that. But I would pay a'' lot more for it if the above points were the reality. However, reasonable enough, when it first came out it was disgustingly overpriced for what it was. But it can be found cheaply depending on the time of year, and that is a right bargain. Peace out.

    A perfect blend of smooth smoke and delicate peaty tastes. My new favorite Scotch for sure!

    Absolutely adore this. Its so characterful and special. I just cant get enough of the sweet/spice and peat smoke. Its intoxicating in every sense! Thoroughly lovely on ice or neat.

    Breathtaking bite... With strong piney peatey aftertaste. 2 sips were delecate and flavoured but the final knockback of a 60ml shot... Bam. Sadly there is a slight burn but its a pleasant uplifting aftertaste that remains with a deeply woody undertone.

    Had been looking forward to trying this and was disappointed. Not bad on the nose, bit of smoke and peat but a ''raw spirit'' smell that soon overpowered it all. The first taste gets the full flavour of that lovely peat that lingers...but there comes that rawness that takes the taste away and left me unimpressed. Tried again and again; neat, little bit of water....but the same disappointment. For me, this is an average whisky. I would take a bottle of Ledaig instead of Superstition, it has a far superior taste sensation.
