Superstition is comprised of two different malts: one heavily peated, and one non peated created in more of a Highland malt style. The whiskies also range in age from 13-21 years old. The Ankh Cross located on the front of the bottle is a symbol of good luck in the Western Isles. Note: As of early 2018, this has been discontinued.

Tasting Notes

"The peat smoke is actually presented to us with kid gloves. The peated whisky only comprised about 13% of the whisky, so it is understandable. Honey, oakcakes, and vanilla are the sweet bits here. The texture is fairly full with a moderate amount of oil. The peat smoke is fleeting and may serve as a tease to the so called "peat heads" out there."
