Of the Unico's, which vintage do you think you preferred the most?

Max, of these I think the ‘98 is overall the finest. On the night I had the ‘98 it was tasted next to the ‘80. I preferred the ‘80 that night only because it was showing a flavor profile I had not enjoyed before, but I think the ‘98 is a better vintage. I too greatly enjoy the ‘89 vintage and have enjoyed at least 6 from ‘89.

The finest ever was the ‘68 ( magnum) Doktap was was referring to. The ‘70 vintage is also kickass.
