Jura is most easily reached by a small ferry from Islay. With a population of around 200 on an island about 30 miles long, Jura makes Islay feel like a bustling metropolis. Dominating the island are three mountains known as the paps. The islands single road winds along the eastern coast, passing through the only village, Craighouse, which is also the location of the island pub and distillery. The Superstition is one of Jura’s classic range. It is a lightly peated easy drinking dram.
