The Prophecy has been fulfilled - you're drinking it.
Established in 1810 on the Isle of Jura, north-west of the Island (and whisky region) of Islay. As with many other Scotch distilleries, Jura went through a rough patch in the first half of the 20th century. It wasn't until 1960, when two local estate owners, Robin Fletcher and Tony Riley-Smith rebuilt the distillery and introduced taller stills that allowed Jura to create a wider mix of malts. Jura’s Whiskies are just as unique as their place – a range of rich, seafaring Whiskies – some lightly peated, others carrying a heavier peated profile.
Prophecy stands out amongst its Jura friends as a smokier and more heavily peated expression. Imagine you are one of those bodies preserved in peat. That’s what it's like to drink Jura Prophecy.
This very fine malt is is made in small batches from old and rare casks. The thick wafts of smoke last from nose to finish, deepening and enriching the coastal flavours also embodied in this dram. Prophecy is a Scotch that sticks close to its home, with a tangy sea-salt buried beneath all that peated smoke.
