Thanks to /u/muaddib99 for this mystery sample.
As a break from getting through some of my whisky samples, I was offered a mystery sample before a whisky tasting. You know, to relax.
So he poured myself and /u/devoz a mystery dram of Mac Albert whisky. This whisky is imported from Scotland to the Dominican Republic, where it’s blended with local matured spirit.
Does that mean it’s a Scotch? Not by any definition, in Scotland or anywhere outside of the Dominican Republic. However it’s sold as a whisky. It’s below the normal alcohol by volume, and I’m guessing it’s mixed with rum.
Where’s the whisky come from? Who knows? I am glad it didn’t make me go more blind.
Let’s see how this tastes, shall we?
