Whisky Reviews for Isle of Jura 1988 BA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    I've only had two Juras that I've liked. This, and a 1966 Signatory Vintage. The others were just gross. This is one of those 28-30 yo Juras that have been released recently, and they seem to be quite promising, and perhaps can be redeeming for the distillery.

    Purchased sample.
    • Nose
      Tart and sweet, with a very lemony edge. Pineapple cubes. Apple juice.
    • Taste
      Honey lemon drops, waxy and oily despite having a thin and narrow mouthfeel. Weird, I know. Candied ginger. Bit of peat and mint, and hints of oils and metals. Almost like a springbank but less funkiness.
    • Finish
      Not very long, but it's true to its nose and palate. 90 points throughout.

  2. MaltMartyr scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It is a distinct single cask. A well chosen Blackadder selection, but the finish is often more prominent in the OBs and 'other' IB outlier casks.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Meyer lemon followed by canned Dole pineapple to mandarin orange, apple cinnamon, Tonka truck tires
    • Taste
      86 86
      smoke, rubber, peanuts, dried fruit with apricot/apple cinnamon; water brings out more of the nutty lemon
    • Finish
      87 87
      middle level pepper citrus finish lingers with pecans.
