We've talked before about how Americans just don't really appreciate our tastes, but this reaction to our whiskey, our whiskey, is just abhorrent.
Fair enough if they're going to giant liquorice flavour crap from wherever (because as we all know liquorice is the worst thing the world has ever given us, along with wasps), but don't go tasting our whiskey and telling us it's awful. We're famous for it for a reason. And not to say that there's anything wrong with Connemara whiskey, but there are some mighty fine Irish whiskeys out there that you could have gone for lads. That Middleton don't cost a pretty penny for nothing.
