2023 Silver Medal Winner| Canadian Whisky Awards

Discover the enigmatic charm of Gleann Dubh, Gaelic for "The Dark Glen," a 16-year-old single malt that is as rich in history as it is in flavor. Crafted in the serene valleys of Cape Breton, this whisky embodies the spirit of its namesake - a tribute to glens everywhere, from the Scottish Highlands to the far reaches of the world. 

A Tale of Triumph: The journey of Gleann Dubh mirrors a saga of resilience and identity. Glenora Distillery, in its pursuit to uphold its heritage, faced a landmark legal challenge over the use of "Glen" in its brand name. This battle, fought with tenacity and passion, culminated in a historic victory at the Supreme Court of Canada. Gleann Dubh stands as a testament to this triumph, a symbol of rightful pride and unyielding spirit. 

The Dark Glen: The name "Gleann Dubh" is not just a nod to the picturesque valley but also to the distinctive character of this whisky. As the "black sheep" of the whisky world, Glenora embraced its uniqueness by crafting a darker, peated whisky. Gleann Dubh, with its smoky and robust profile, is the embodiment of this bold and defiant spirit. 

A Symphony of Flavors: This exquisite whisky harmoniously blends traditional malt flavors with a distinct citrus zest, thanks to its peated malt. Aged for 16 years, it develops a rich, silky mouthfeel, with the peat's intensity mellowing to reveal a complex array of oak spice, vanilla, and coconut. 

Nature's Whisper: Beyond its bold character, Gleann Dubh is a celebration of its environment. The nearby apple orchards, lush forests, and heather fields lend their subtle influences, infusing the whisky with notes of apple blossom, maple syrup, and a delicate sweetness. 

Savor the Rebellion: Gleann Dubh, "The Dark Glen," invites you to experience the unconventional. Whether you're a connoisseur of peated whiskies or exploring this style for the first time, this whisky promises a journey of discovery. Embrace the dark, embrace the defiant - enjoy "The Dark Glen."

    Smooth whisky with expected peat flavour. Had friends over from Norway that brought their versions (2) of similar whisky for a taste test for fun. All different, this being 16 year old was distinct. Recommended product for your special taste.

    I bought this as a birthday gift for my partner, and I have to say, we were really impressed! It had a really nice peaty, peppery flavour, and had that warm feeling, yet it was nice and smooth! Well done!!

    Very smooth and rich. Peaty enough to know it's there, but not in your face. Nice character and smooth finish.
