    My best guess is, because unlike wagyu or berkshire, it's not a specific breed that one can raise just about anywhere in the world.

    Kuan, it's just really good. The meat is incredibly flavourful, definitely on the gamey side but also kinda sweet, reminds me of citrus. The fat is sorta waxy but renders lovely. This is all based on four racks I was given as a sample, mind you, but what I had has me craving more.

    Welsh lamb is just about the best in the world for flavour - comes from the grass they eat, probably due to all the rain we get in GB.

    Agreed, The Cape Breton Lamb that is the local standard here makes Australian look tepid and entry level. But from what I have had of Welsh, to heck with local!
