I've just been on Islay and Jura for Easter holidays and I've tasted Isle of Jura Superstition: I've found it excellent !!
Is there someone that know this malt ?
P.S.:Sorry for my english: I'm from Italy!

My info on this subject is that it's a mix of 10 and 16 yrs jura malt.
That's also the reason there is noyear on the label.
If a year was printed it must be the jongest due to whisky law in Scotland.
Is my info right?
Greetings from THe Netherlands where we can buy Isle of Jura "Superstition" freely for around 50 Euro ($60)

I've tried the 21yr (OB), and I was disappointed! I like the 10 (or 12) yr old - can't get it anymore here - but the older model doesn't justify the price IMHO. It's a nice dram, don't get me wrong. I'd be pleased if someone offered me a dram. But as for value for money...
However, I have managed to convince my boss to buy it into regular stock at my place of work so i have a regular supply of the stuff by the boxload!
The sweet honey flavours and subtle Smokey peat makes this one of my new favorites

This is exactly where the Superstition leaves me... Oftentimes wondering whether it's actually a whisky, so intense is the back-and-forth between those sweet, syrupy, mandarin orange-like notes and the other, more maritime-based characteristics. The malt can sometimes taste (to me, at any rate) very liqueurish. This particular beast therefore represents one I visit only occasionally.
