Well I'm a free thinking man .. and .. it tastes as crap as many others that Scotland has sent for blending....
there are some raisins and some bourbon , which was some of its noteable years in the final casks apart from madeira.. so that gives it some purpose.
Yeah its quite pleasant
.. it doesent have the blow your trousers off effect of some malts.. but .. not every one wants that
I'd say it was a good effort actually from wales ... Its definately a malt as for quality so should be appreciated for that.
If Wales wanted to learn how to do it though .. they should look to Japan as to how to copy .. I hate to say that .. but the Japs are making some whisky today that we are only bringing out of bond from 20 years ago
