    Isle of Jura 18 yo 1989/2007 (52.7%, The Bottlers, cask #1107) Five stars

     Please fasten your seatbelts. Colour: pale gold. Nose: so unmistakably Jura! Baby milk, carbon paper, new 1980s car (when they were full of plastic, remember?), copper, horse dung, manure, farmyard… Sure it’s a bit ‘love-it-or-hate-it’, but it’s extremely ‘true’. With water: some seawater, freshly squeezed apples, powdered milk, sunflower oil, engine oil… It’s Jura, quoi. Mouth (neat): p.e.r.f.e.c.t. Acrid, lemony, sharp… This is pure grapefruit juice matured in stone flagons. Love this. With water: greatly carbony, gravelly, oily, citrusy… Finish: long, acrid, drying, kind of smoky, mineral, ashy… Yeah! Comments: a bottling that perfectly captured Jura’s style. Now, it’s no consensual style – at all – but The Bottlers deserve kisses and hugs for having bottled this very idiosyncratic beauty. This, is terroir in whisky. Can we have new bottlings, Zubair Mohamed? Please!!!
