In Angola you`ll find one distillery and in Kenya two.Bond 7 is a whisky from Diageo Kenya is available here,just a whisky good in the mix or straight but not really topshelf.In South-Afrika you also have a single malt never had it,and on Mauritius there is a whisky? from Carew Ltd.That`s all i know about African whiskies.I thought they are more into rum,palmwines and stuff like sorghum and "kafferbier" as they named it in South-Afrika.

Interesting tasting notes on that one; "Spent fireworks", I take it that's a nice way of saying "sulfur"

I can imagine using my untreated water containing hydrogen sulfide in an attempt to tease out the more subtle flavors of a malt whisky. No thanks!
