Lamb - domestic (American), Australian or New Zealand?

I love lamb and the "gamey" taste that most describe is just pure delicious lamby-ness. I bought a New Zealand leg of lamb a few weeks ago which I did not feel had much lamb flavor at all. It was my understanding that the "down under" cuts have more flavor because they are usually 100% grass fed. I have been tempted to try the American leg, but don't think that I've ever had American lamb primarily because I was seeking out that lamb flavor which I thought came from down South. I have American, Australian and New Zealand most readily available to me. What is your favorite country of origin for lamb? Do you notice a big difference between the three?
