Whisky Reviews for Isle of Jura 1990 PST

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.64 points

  1. Gaija scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Excellent Jura, retaining sufficient distillery character (especially on the nose) while also playing a splendid fruity-vegetal duality. The nose is maybe a little restrained (for now, bottle aeration might improve things), but the palate is drop dead gorgeous.

  2. aphex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Old school Jura walking borderline between austerity and fruitiness.
    Nice balance between mineral, waxy and fruity notes.
    • Nose
      Mineral, vegetal and light coastal notes. Chalk, seashells, grass. A touch of leather. Citrusy notes (limes, grapefruits), gooseberries.
    • Taste
      Honey, chalk, citrus and yellow fruits, pepper, mentholated and herbal notes.
    • Finish
      Medium, waxy, citrusy, mineral and slightly bitter.

    A good vintage Isle of Jura. Quite fruity, oily and also layered with notes of olives, vegetables, orchard, sunflower, chamomile tea, wild roses. Long oily finish.
