Whisky reviews for Isle of Jura 1989 SV

5 users have left 5 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.10 points.

  1. Anthaeus scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Very pleasantly surprised. The smoke is smooth and more subtle than brutal. Still very present on the nose with a pleasant note of fruit, but in the mouth then only a nice accompaniment to the dominant and very tasty note of honey. The alcohol is well integrated and the 59% is hardly noticeable. Departure is long and harmonious...my best Isle of Jura so far

  2. Ivynor scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    a simple Jura, expeditious, but greedy and well done.
    87 + / 88-
    • Nose
      A beautiful fruity, well melted, accompanied by floral notes. The whole is more strictly speaking medicinal than peat (syrup for cough, plants).
    • Taste
      The first attack is sharp, a little acidic. Then we find medicinal notes, tart and a nice oily texture.
    • Finish
      A little alcoholic, slightly vegetal. Stay good.

  5. Segens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A great balance of peat and fruit and surely not my last Jura. 
    • Nose
      beewax, herbs, flower meadow and also peat & smoke. (I also have cucumber haha) I was quite impressed of the fruity nose as I had a lot of smoke in the nose first. Lovely!
    • Taste
      The smoke is no more so intense and the fruity is now very decent and giving a nice symbiosis
    • Finish
      Smoke is back and giving an excellent smoke finish with a hint of honey. Well done!
