Day 362 Drink: Isle of Jura Superstition Single Malt
George Orwell came to Jura in 1946 to write. The result was the novel 1984, which has spawned more than a few college term papers.
Isle of Jura Superstition is a 90 proof single malt. The name comes from the legend that Isle of Jura distillers believe it is unlucky to cut peat during April. Isle of Jura Superstition is a mahogany colored Scotch with a a slightly sweet almost maple nose. The flavor has a good backbone of spice, oak and some nice honey notes in the finish.
