Nose: Salty and maritime. Big toffee, honey, cream, caramelized apples, pine, mineral-rich peat, and faint smoke. The honey and barley notes are both light and bright. A bit youn-ish, but not unpleasant.
Palate: Creamy and soft on arrival, with a very gradual development. Peat comes in and steadily builds on itself, with salt and pepper also creeping in. The honey and barley characters remain light and bright. This tastes quite young, but there’s zero sharpness or bite. Smooth and paced.
Finish: Butter, light honey, minerals, pine, banana, faint vanilla, mild oak, soft smoke, and black peppercorns. Short-to-medium length.
Thoughts: For me both the 10 and the Superstition have a nice young-ish appeal. The peat here is used as a complimentary flavour, not a defining one. If you’re just coming into single malts from the world of Johnnie Walkers you might feel at home with Jura whiskies. Very light and pretty middle-of-the-road. Anoraks will likely want something more challenging and stimulating. This is something I could sip on when I feel like drinking a blend, but it’s not one I come back to much. Nice, but kind of forgettable.
