Whisky Reviews for Isle of Jura 1990 BD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.63 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    with water: I would rather leave water out here, for me it only increases the cheese note in the nose

    Conclusion: yes, OK, but for a 25yo very pale, the herbal notes are interesting, but the Jura cheese diminishes the enjoyment in my eyes
    • Nose
      smoked herbs, some peat smoke with lots of herbal notes such as thyme and rosemary, in addition a very light sweetness like icing, also a little cheese spread
    • Taste
      it starts with a strong, light sweetness, hiding the herbal notes behind it, which only become clearer in the mouth after a while, the peat is also a bit stronger
    • Finish
      surprisingly short for a 25yo, the aroma play of nose and taste continues, interplay between sugar sweetness, herbal notes and light peat smoke, you can also taste some salt

  2. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Bottler's Tasting Notes:

    Nose: Maritime notes with a hint of smoke and fresh fruit. Taste: Peat explodes on the tongue. Much more intense smoke than in the nose. Can keep up with every Islay Malt. This is complemented by complex aromas from the 25-year period in the Bourbon barrel.Finish: Dry and smoky.
