Tasting Notes
Oliver KlimekNose: 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.
