Isle Of Jura 1999

Seen this at the whisky exchange - sounds a bit tempting. Anyone tried it here ?

Apparently its very heavily peated and comparable to the very young Ardbeg.

Tried some here are my notes:

Colour: Strong green tea, unusual

Nose: POWERFUL: Ardbeg style peatiness, Fresh malt,
white pepper, hint of licorice.

Taste: VERY AGGRESSIVE: Iodine, burnt wood, Peat, sherry (not much), sweet malt, golden syrup, bicycle inner tubes, intense pepperiness. Slightly reminiscent of Laproaig 10YO CS but pretty unique and much more powerful.

Finish: Hot, Warming, spice, smokey.

Very unique, very powerful and very interesting ....but unlike the Young Ardbeg, which I think is great just as it is, this needs more time in the wood.

Will try it with water at some point !
