Isle of Jura Superstition Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Jura Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from Scottish barley, which is milled at the distillery and mashed with hot water in order to release its natural sugars. Once the barley has been mashed, it is fermented and then distilled through Jura's 28-foot tall copper-pot stills. The stills' unusual size and shape emphasizes the high ester notes of the barley, and produces a noticeably lighter and fruitier whisky.
Isle of Jura Superstition Single Malt Scotch Whisky is crafted from 13% peated barley (the barley is peated to 40 phenol ppm) and 87% unpeated barley. Once the whisky has been distilled, it is matured up to 21 years in American oak casks that were previously used to mature bourbon. Isle of Jura Superstition earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the Beverage Testing Institute Competition in 2012.
In addition, each bottle of Jura Superstition is adorned with an ancient Ankh cross — a symbol of luck in the western isles — on the front of the bottle.
