Ok. Origin finished, Superstition opened. This may change some as the opens in coming weeks. This whisky is much different from the Origin. Parts refined age, parts harsh youth, parts honey, parts smoke and peat.... but none of the parts seem to play well together. It's like a Frankenstein monster, sewn together. It's drinkable, and affordable, but too strange to knock the 10 year old origin off my Jura shelf space competition.

This expression is a conundrum. It's unique but too much of a Frankenstein's Monster (as you put it) for a daily dram. The irony is that once you open it and it oxidises, the flavour profile will shift in a matter of weeks to something less exciting than the sum of the monster's parts.

Oh damn, too bad if air just makes it boring. I will try to make the most if it while it's fresh. Jura Elixer 12 will likely be my next trial from the little island that could - but I have lots of others to get to first.
