Jura Prophecy is a small batch peated single malt matured in Limousine oak casks and finished in Oloroso Sherry butts.
Not as spicy as the usual Juras. Rough but good, pretty straight forward dram with some character. Bit of a fruity whisky as well.
In a way, Jura Prophecy reminds me of young Clint Eastwood. And "For a Few Dollars More" really comes to mind, when you start to compare this to Superstition or the 10YO Jura. You really get a better whisky in Prophecy, just by investing a bit more.
Nose: Peat dominates with smoke in the back. Some phenols and hints of lemon zest. Bit sweet. Water adds floral notes.
Taste: Toast that's bit burnt. Peat and wee spices linger. Smooth but crispy. Drops of lemon.
Finish: Cinnamon and rough peat. I like it!
Balance: Non-complex whisky, that's nicely good. Even better than the 16YO Jura (though I scored the same for it but still...)
