The Isle of Jura distillery, while according to the Scotch Whisky Association are officially part of the Highlands, have in recent years begun producing expressions more closely related to their Islay cousins. The Jura Prophecy strengthens that relationship even further with their most recent product, which is more heavily peated than its forebears. This is the first of an annual release under the "Prophecy" title, and with this first annual release now gone from LCBO shelves, we'll be eagerly awaiting next year's expression.
Nose: Cinnamon, licorice and campfire smoke. While I hate to make comparisons to other distilleries, this is reminiscent of a Talisker. A touch of seaweed and iodine wrapped up in melted butter over toast.
