Jura Superstition Whisky £25 @ Asda

26
Found 8th Feb 2015
Isle of Jura Superstition whisky for the low price of £25!
It isn't the cheapest it's ever been (I've seen it for 22 before), however this price for this quality of whisky is fantastic!

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 young and aged (up to 21 years) whiskies go into this mysterious bottle, so there's a different flavour to explore with every drop.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! (I know you're kidding, please say your kidding!)

One does not simply mix coke with a single malt....

Coke is ok for cleaning the toilet.

This was also £26 in Morrisons last week, can't say if it still is.

Can anyone recommend something similar to this? I'm looking to grow my whisky collection mmm

I don't know what the fuss is about, Coke adds significantly to the flavour, it simply cannot be argued!

Good deal.Heat

My fav is the elixir one

Kinda think paragraph #2 is pushing it a bit.

Still is and they price match so should get a quid back in points.

I like peaty single malts, although as I'll doubtless now prove, I'm no expert. So does this paragraph from the OP, if true, make it blended rather than a single malt? Or it's ok if from the same distillery?

Pretty much all single malts are blends. They are just blended by a single distillery. However, when the whisky is the result of blending from multiple distilleries it must be marked blended.

Individual distilleries tend to have distinctive flavours so single malts have a certain signature taste. The cheap blends however tend to just lump together the cheapest output they can source from the distilleries and hence have that somewhat messy generic rough whisky taste. Best for cocktails...

That said, there are some expensive and nice blends out there that have well thought out combinations of complimenting flavours.

The superstition is lightly peated so maybe go for Highland Park 12 or Talisker 10. But, to be honest, going for all the Juras is a great way to try a good spread of different flavours.

I've since had my eye on Talisker 10 and I think the only thing putting me off Highland Park is the fact that it's my dad's staple (though not necessarily the 12). I think I'm going to order a few samples from Masters of Malt and go from there. Cheers!

Or, get yourself off to one of the whisky shows (eg. Whisky Live in London in March). I bought a heap load of 35/20cl bottles from Whisky Exchange recently, and now realise it's going to cost me a fortune buying all the 70cl ones!!!! :-)

Product of one distillery - single malt (almost all single malts will have malts of varying ages in them. The age statement on a bottle (if given) refers to the age of the very youngest whisky used. (in this example there are whiskies from Jura which are up to 21 years old), but the one giving that lovely mild peat smoke flavour and spice is comparatively youthful.

Single cask - much more expensive - content of one cask from one production run (usually numbered and collectable eg bottle no.50 of x) often much higher alcohol % (cask strength).

Blended (formerly also known as vatted or pure malt) - blend or mix of malt whiskies from a variety of different distilleries

Blended whisky - (the misunderstood art) a blend of various malt and grain whiskies often from various distilleries, blended for taste.

To be called scotch any of the whiskies in the bottle must have been distilled in Scotland from water and malted barley and aged in oak casks (of 700l capacity or less) for a minimum of 3 years on Scottish soil. Must contain no additives (with the one exception of caramel colouring E150a), and have a minimum abv of 40%.

Hope that helps and by no means an exhaustive intro.
