Nose: good integration of the sherry and the peat. There’s smoke (burnt leaves) but it’s not as profoundly peated as I would have expected. Slightly tarry and even some medicinal notes. Everything’s rounded off by dried fruits, hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and oranges. A bit uncommon as a whole, but very enjoyable. Mouth: much more peat now. Starting slightly sweet with fruity notes but soon getting (a lot) drier and spicier (pepper, cinnamon). A good deal of smoke. Overall punchy and clean. Finish: dry smoke coated with liquorice and spices. Medium length.

Ooh, is this new? Despite the round slagging it get's on here I'm a fan of their Superstition. I'll need to seek this out. It is the festive season after all.

Yes, it's new. You should track it down if you're a fan of peated Jura. It's really different from Superstition though.

I dont know about the Superstition getting a 'slagging.' I haven't had it, but it does sound to me like one of those malts that is so unique, it tends to divide opinion - some will love it while others aren't convinced. Have a look at the responses to Jean-Luc's review of the Superstition, you'll see what I mean...
