The Prophecy Returns

A limited release of around 10,000 bottles with new batches expected every year.

The legend of the Jura prophecy dates from the early 1700's when it was said that the illustrious Campbell family had evicted a wise old seer blessed with the sight of a third eye - the ability to see the future, she prophesised that when the last member of the family left Jura they would be one eyed and his belongings would be carried in a cart drawn by a white horse. In 1938 Charles Campbell left the island. Blind in one eye from the Great war and having fallen on bad times, his goods were carried in a cart drawn by a single white horse. He was the last Campbell to leave the Island and the last laird of Jura. The prophecy was fulfilled and over time the story became legend.

This 'profoundly peated' dram was made to replicate the style at the time of Charles Campbell and was matured in a mixture of cask types before being finished in oloroso sherry casks. The whisky is non-chill filtered however purists will be disappointed to learn that caramel colour has been added.

Tasting note: Bright gold colour. There’s a surprising amount of floating sediment that comes with this whisky. Sweet and smokey aromatics (bacon fat / smoked trout) have an industrial edge (engine grease); there’s a foundation of lovely, clean sweet cereals beneath it all. Entry is light and slightly waxy, deceptively so, given the enormous peppery wave that follows. Flavours are off-dry with the peat taking on an ashy, kippery slant that doesn’t leave room for much else to show. Good length, but the oak influence at mid palate is too much, finishing very dry, tannic and cigar box like. A spiciness persists right through to the finale, accompanied by a mild lanolin, cigar box fade. A good food whisky in this genre? Non chill filtered. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Nose of smoked fish, brine and butter. Textured and mouth-coating, with flavours of luscious fruit, peat smoke, spice and liquorice sticks.  The addition of water sweetens the whole effect. Peat lingers in the spicy finish, which becomes drier and more ashy. 46.0% Alc/Vol.
