The Jura Superstition is a lightly peated Single Malt with hints of smoke and spice, crafted from a selection of the finest aged Jura single malt whiskies. This mysterious spirit has a unique style and character and includes tastes of spice, honey, pine and peat with a whisper of smoke. It was also a Gold Winner at the 2009 SFWSC Awards.

Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15 Year
Tasting Notes (taken from the Whisky.com website)
“The Glenfiddich Solera system is unique amongst Scotch whisky distillers. Fifteen-year-old Glenfiddich from three types of casks – traditional American bourbon, Spanish sherry and new oak – is married in a large Solera vat, made of Oregon pine. The vat is always kept at least half full, ensuring a consistent quality of whisky is maintained whenever it is topped up. Then this beautifully balanced single malt is left to settle in a small Solera tun before bottling. The taste is a full and fruity nose, with delicate honey and vanilla notes. The taste is elegantly smooth, with a deep flavour that reveals fruit, gentle spice and a touch of oak. The finish is long and satisfying.”
We also have some great Ales and Ciders in the fridge at the moment:
Hargreaves Hill Hefeweizen – A traditional German style wheat ale of 50% wheat and 50% barley that is brewed in the Yarra Valley. It is lightly bittered with hops hops grown in the Hallertau region of Bavaria. There are prominent estery notes of cloves and vanilla thanks to the conditioning that occurs in the bottle.
Redoak Organic Pale Ale – Redoak’s English style Pale Ale is brewed using only certified organic ingredients, with only the finest organically grown malt and hops selected for this unique beer. This ale has a distinctive fruity character with a firm hop bitterness and rich malty flavour that is due to the specially chosen strain of London Ale yeast used in the brewing.
Monteith’s Crushed Apple Cider – Monteith’s have decided to raise the bar on cider with their new refreshing drink for summer. The product is fermented dry and held with very little residual sugar, and is certainly a drink worth talking over.
Stone & Wood Draught Ale – This crisp fresh ale is called “Draught” because it is drawn from the tank and straight into a keg or bottle without filtering or pastuerising. Brewed with local water from the Byron Bay hinterland, Australian grown barley, wheat, and hops, and carefully selected ale yeast, this beer has been crafted with complex flavours and a refreshing bitter finish.
