THL: What is it?
Jura Prophecy is a Single Malt peated Scotch whisky from the Isle of Jura. Jura is right next to the Isle of Islay, where many other peated Scotch whiskies are made.
THL: Why should you try it?
Jura Prophecy is the creation of the world-renowned whisky blender, Richard Paterson, the Master Blender for Whyte & Mackay. The whisky is a powerful combination of smoke and peat that strikes a nice balance between a typical Jura whisky and a brinier Islay whisky. It serves as a perfect gateway whisky for either camp looking to explore new territory.
THL: Who makes it?
Jura Prophecy is produced at Jura Distillery, on the Isle of — you guessed it — Jura. The name and design of the bottle comes from a tale in the 1700s when Clan Campbell ruled the Isle of Jura. A seer of the time predicted that the last Campbell would leave the island with a missing eye and all his possessions pulled behind him by a white horse. The prophecy came true two centuries later when Charles Campbell, having lost an eye in WWII, left the island with his white horse and all of his belongings.
