1 - New 1608
2 - BB
3 - Old 1608
That's not telling you much, but let me finish by saying I've polished of nearly 2 bottles of the new 1608 in the last week with very little help.
I popped it open last night also ..... and I can concur with your 1,2,3
The new 1608 Anniversary edition is really nice ...
Lovely nose with slightly vinegared Malt, Citrus & grape, Wood
and plenty of soft dried fruit like apricot which carries through to the taste.
This is so much more fuller than the old 1608 and more rich fruitness and it feels like it is a single malt
Iain really enjoyed the Jameson Rarest also really excellent stuff .... I think I'll be getting a bottle of this stuff also
