How big is the taste difference between boar and barrow?

I'm new to this pig raising stuff and we got our pigs when they were around 65lbs. each one male one female. We are about to butcher and everyone (the oldtimers!) says that his meat won't be fit to eat(our in-castrated boar)! I don't mind if it's a little "gamey" as we like game meat, but I think their diet will have more impact (good grain mix and lots & lots of fresh scraps and garden forage) taste wise, what do you think???
