This latest rendition offended me in several ways, not just by the re-vamped design.

The finishing has become shorter and less noticeable, and the overall spirit has declined into a muddled, muted smoked fish and overt caramel quality, while being noticably "spikier" (hot) on the palate.
Quite a disappointment. Time to buy the older version at auction...
