When you think "Highlander," beer doesn't normally come to mind. When you think "beer," whiskey malt doesn't usually come to mind. Well, Highlander Whiskey Malt Beer has defied all convention and gone with an unlikely combination.
It's a bit too "unlikely" for my tastes. Not having been born in Ireland, Scotland, or England, I do not appreciate the subtle nuances of fine malt whiskey. And I, therefore, certainly wouldn't appreciate the subtle nuances of a whiskey malt beer.
It was a tough finish, I must say. On the bright side, it motivated me to have another beer to rid my mouth of the whiskey malt taste.
