JURA 吉拉預言 Prophecy Peated 46%  

2011 Jim Murray's Whisky Bible: 90.5分 ; 2010 MMA銅牌獎

JURA『Prophecy預言』是一隻非常特別獨特的重泥煤味威士忌,甫上市就得到
IWSC "Gold Best in Class" 的大獎,它是為了這一個專屬吉拉島上的獨眼傳說而設計。這款商品的前身就是2009年 Whisky Live,懷特馬凱公司特別從日本引進回台灣的1999年 40ppm 59.1%原酒,其風味為特殊的焦油、泥煤、肉桂、海鹽、熱帶水果及柑橘,層次感佳,非常有趣且獨特的限量款重泥煤Jura威士忌。


==============================

預言故事的開始是源自於一個流傳在吉拉島上的古老傳說,17世紀初,坎貝爾家族來到這一個原始的島上成為第一個定居下來的大家族而開始生活,並把島上一位居住很久的先知給驅逐。這一位擁有第三隻眼睛,可以看到未來並預知命運的先知在非常憤怒的情緒之下給坎貝爾家族一道預言並做為懲罰。他詛咒坎貝爾家族最後會離開吉拉島,而最後一位族人離開的時候只會擁有一隻眼睛,並由一隻白色的馬拖著所有家當而落寞離開。

之後很多人都聽到這一件事情而把它當成一個笑話流傳,慢慢地,成為了島上人人都知道的一個著名的傳說。

一直到1938年,當Charles Campbell-一位在大戰中失去一隻眼睛的老兵,也是島上最後一為坎伯爾家族的族人因為島上困苦的生活環境而終於決定賣掉土地離開吉拉島。 這一個流傳已久的預言終於實現了,Charles Campbell選擇在一個寒冷寂靜的早晨,由一隻白馬拖著他所有的行李在碼頭上了船悄悄離開了吉拉島... 



Tasting Notes by Whiskyfun Serge:
Jura 'Prophecy' (46%, OB, 'profoundly peated', 2009)
A ‘limited annual release – year 1’, which may mean that there will be more in the foreseeable future. Colour: gold. Nose: I don’t know what ‘profoundly’ means but rather less peaty than the Superstition it is – at first nosing that is. We’re rather more on sour cream, porridge, old walnuts, leaves, shoe polish and ink, with a lot of coal smoke after that, diesel oil, tarry rope… Very unusual whisky. Whiffs of antiseptic, bandages, tarmac… Much drier than the Superstition, getting smokier by the minute, now smokier than the Superstition in any case. Mouth: very good attack, very peaty, not unlike all the great young single casks that were issued a few years ago. Some fruits (white peaches, apples) and a very enjoyable greenness (green apples, rhubarb), then quite some pepper and a little mustard. Gets grassier and grassier, very nicely so. Notes of lime and grapefruit playing with your tongue. The middle is a little thinner. Finish: a tad narrow but long, on something such as ‘peated green apples and limes’. Comments: very unusual and very good peated Jura, with a dry ‘fino’ character. Highly drinkable – we want more of these batches even if being into peat seems to become less fashionable these days among whisky freaks. Swing of the pendulum? SGP:357 -
