In the early 1700’s the Campbells of Jura evicted a wise old seer blessed with the ability to foresee the future.Bristling with resentment, she prophesiesed that when the last Campbell left the island he would be one-eyed and his belongings would be carried in a cart drawn by a white horse.
Over time the story became legend and the prophecy drifted from memory. Until 1938, when Charles Campbell, blind in one eye from the Great War, fell on hardtimes. It was a cold unforgiving morning when he made his way to the old pier for the last time.
“That day, the sound of the cart on the track could be heard for miles” Allan MacDonald – witness to a legend
Meticulously crafted from a selection of the finest and rarest aged Jura single malt whiskies, Prophecy is a profoundly peated spirit. Peat smoke, fresh cinnamon and spicy sea spray lead the first assault. Finally the tarry bonfire notes slowly give way to hints of soft liquorice and nutmeg.
Bottled in a traditional style without chill filtration to preserve the true character and deliver an authentic taste of 1938. As such you may detect a gentle haze. This is perfectly natural and does not affect the essence of the spirit.
