Whisky Reviews for Isle of Jura 1999 Heavy Peated
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.05 points
- Peat on the nose, but nothing frightening either. But also, cascading: wood, fruit, caramel, salt. In the mouth, the peat dominates clearly cons, at least on the first sips. Behind is wood. The texture is thick. By letting it open, the honey begins to dominate the nose, and it is found in the mouth for something more balanced now. The addition of water does not transcend the nose but does not lose any of its vigor, but in the mouth, it is more juicy, with even more honey, and driftwood (quite typical of Jura elsewhere, as a Prophecy under steroids). Long finish on peat. Enthusiasm 3/5
- Nose: Very smoky, camp fire, smoked bacon, a slight fruitiness is noticable
Palate: Strong peat, some pepper, a bit sweet, with water citrus notes emerge.
Finish: Long and smoky.
Overall: A great young peat monster that doesn’t have to hide behind its cousins from Islay.
- The mushroom side of Jura is clear, with more caramel and candied orange peel. Attack slightly peaty, powerful mouth, better than nose, caramel, thick texture. Enough monolithic despite everything. Long finish on caramel and black mushroom.
- Rather confusing and hard to follow. better however than many of the official Jura.
A little peaty, buttered and slightly caramelized. The nose is strange, oscillates between an impression of soap, oil, and something "dirty" (rotten wood, foam)
Rough enough, hard to drink. Not very sweet, with a slightly creamy texture. Peat, iodine and seaweed are associated with a little citrus and always these "dirty" notes. Alcohol moderately integrated. Sherry little marked or nonexistent.
A bit peppery, rough, marine, with touches of moldy wood, old cellar.
- I didn't expect much from this one but it's more than decent.
It does lack balance and the peat/ashes combo sometimes come across as a bit agressive.
More on earthy notes than peat at first. Butter, hazelnuts, dried raisins and liquorice. Maybe a tad too much alcool. With some time the peat comes out, with some meaty aromas and BBQ.
There come the peat. Quite smoky as well, with some salty notes (sea spray). Some fruits that's don't last. Quickly fades away and ends on ashes.
Taste lasts longer with a few drops of water, more fruits as well (citrus fruits). Thick, nice mouthfeel.
Ashes, warm but too oaky with water.
Strong peat, smoke, fruit and mineral aromas.
In the mouth it is really peaty, minerals, green apples and lemon peels are also provided.
The finish is medium length with notes of licorice , curry, pepper and tar
