Background: North America’s Only Single Malt Whisky Distillery
In the early 1800s, Scottish immigrants chose Cape Breton Island for their new home as its beauty so resembled the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Many traditions and secrets came with these pioneers. The making of a spirited whisky was one of them. The crystal clear water from MacLellan’s Brook flows from the Mabou Highlands located above Glenora Distillery, giving Glen Breton its classic and pure taste. The world’s first single malt whisky aged in ice wine barrels. This is a Nova Scotia triumph.
Product: Canada’s only Single Malt 10-year-Old Whisky aged in ice wine barrels.
Country of Origin: Canada
Appellation: Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
Tasting Notes: The bouquet is very elegant with a range of subtle spices, orangey citrus fruits, and a hint of ripe banana. Remarkably complex flavors of citrus, dried fruits, and spice play on the palate. Finishes with lightly peaty and cedary perfume. The ice wine barrel-takes off all the normally fiery edges of a 10year-old-whisky. Just incredible, utterly unique, and jaw-dropping!
