I'll second this comment. When I first tried it (WL 2004?) it tasted very good, with a heavy peaty bite and warm richness. At the time it was one of my fav. Jura expressions. Speaking to Willie (master distiller/brand ambassador/bow tier), he stated at the time it was a smallish quantity of 3YO heavily peated Jura vatted with a mixture of older whiskies ranging from 21YO -> 10YO. He kindly let me try the 3YO on it's own, and I could see why there was a need for the vatting.
However the average age of the blend was up at the 15-16YO, and it was priced as a premium product not too far removed from the 16YO!
The price has noticeably come down, and seems to be knocking at slightly above the RRP of the 10YO. Which is unusual in this market where older whiskies seem to command a higher price!
I guess you need to form your own conclusions as to what that means, but the last dram of Superstition I tried didn't taste quite as good as I remembered it from yore!
