My Tasting Notes:
Nose: Very intense, maritime smokiness meets dried fruit
Palate: Peaty and spicy, but also with notes of raisins and dark chocolate
Finish: Long, dry smoke, slightly sweet
Overall: The old version has much more sherry influence than its modern brother. I wouldn’t say it’s better, but it is intriguingly different.
Score: 86/100 – No price information as this is a collector’s bottle
