Because John posted the precise ‘recipes’ for This Is Not A Luxury Whisky and Flaming Heart, including the distilleries involved, the cask types, the ages and their proportions in the final blend, he's accused of breaking Regulation 12.3 of the Spirit Drinks Regulation No 110/2008, which was that any mention of a maturation period or age could only refer to the ‘youngest alcoholic component’ in a spirit.

What bullshit. I can understand not wanting people to put 1 teaspoon of 30 year old whisky into a blend and marketing the hell out of it having "30 year old whisky" in it, but to prevent blenders from giving the precise breakdown cannot be good for the consumer.
