I loved the Prophecy, so I’m looking forward to the follow-up. The pair was discontinued together, so I consider this a rare opportunity. This is the lightly peated variant. Let’s get into it.
Nose: Earthy, vegetal peat. If I remember correctly, the Prophecy was coastal peat. Smoke and iodine. Some caramel and toffee. Honey and vanilla. Faint sun-dried tomato. It’s a fairly reserved nose, but I like what I get. Ash notes as well as mint and dark chocolate assert themselves with time. Brine and sea salt begin to match the vegetal peat. Very good.
Palate: Earthy, rubbery peat. A bit of sea salt and seaweed. Caramel, toffee, and dark chocolate. Big-time orange/tangerine citrus. A heavy dose of cinnamon and black pepper spice.
Finish: Medium-long. Orange citrus and cocoa. Cinnamon, black pepper, and other baking spices.
I definitely prefer the heavily peated rendition to the light peated. I loved the Prophecy, I liked this Superstition. I think this one would be comparable if the palate had delivered what the nose promised.
Regardless, it’s a solid whisky. Glad to have gotten my hands on this bottle long after it was discontinued. Well worth the $64 I paid to get it long after it was discontinued. 3.75/5.
