One thing is certain: Prior's whisky speaks for itself, and he has no Prior counts of making anything worthwhile before he bought Bladnoch Distillery in 2015. He's just a whisky heathen passing himself off as royalty. I'm not averse to trying new things, and so who knows what the future holds.
These days, everything in the OB line of Bladnoch tastes to me as though artificial (chemical) sweetners are being added. I'm not saying definitively that they are, but the whiskies smell and taste that way to me. And, no, I'm not crazy about Prior's decision to go NAS on everything OB except the older spirit that Prior didn't make but rather inherited when he bought the distillery. The old "pre-Australian" Bladnoch 10 wasn't great, but it certainly wasn't bad, and I can't say that about Samsara or Adela.
