Islanders were a superstitious lot in the past. As a nod to them, and to our island home, still dotted with ancient stones and markings, we called this expression Superstition. When you raise a glass of this whisky, you're raising a glass to the ancient ways of our island. Color: Deep intense mahogany with glittering sun rays Nose: Firm and positive, yet forcibly mellow. Strong accents of phenolic aromas. Rich, sensual nuances of honey and marzipan. Palate: Spice, honey, pine and peat aromas make a dramatic impact, the long years in oak casks have tempered and tamed this mystic spirit creating a long, lingering and tantalising aftertaste.

The aroma is brawny, salty and lightly smoky; six more minutes of aeration see the aroma pick up hearty notes of peanut butter, baked apple and sea salt plus a deft touch of cigar tobacco. Tastes robust, briny and sweet; by midpalate, flavors of sweet grain, popcorn, quince and nougat provide plenty of textural and taste depth. Aftertaste is buttery and semisweet. Leagues away from the Jura 16 in style.
