No review of this one so I thought I would add one.
Picked up a bottle of this 6 months ago for about $59.
Nose-Caramel, candy, not much else
Palate- Strange sweetness but enjoyable and very drinkable. Spicy but not in a bad way.
Finish-Long for a 12 year old SM
Final comment- Really underrated for the price, will pick this up again for $60, unfortunately the LCBO thinks the only people that enjoy this SM live in Ottawa
Interesting. I've never seen Isle of Jura 12 yo Elixir in the US middle Atlantic state region in which I live. I'd like to taste it.
I've tasted Jura 10 yo which was obnoxious until it took about 2 years worth of air time, and then became good. I've had Jura Superstition which was sort of OK in a very dirty sort of way, but left me with some mixed feelings. The 40% remaining bottle of Jura Prophecy heavily peated which @whiskyjoe gave me left me disappointed at first, but then with exposure and more and more air time I eventually became very enthusiastic about it. I remain so.
I've never bought a bottle of Isle of Jura for myself. My experiences with it have left me with an abundance of caution. I would buy a bottle of Prophecy again one day when the current one is finally gone. That bottle of Prophecy came from Canada, though. I haven't seen that one in this region.
