"Gleann Dubh" is Gaelic for "The Dark Glen"
By definition, a "glen" is a small valley. As it turns out, although it originally referred to glens in Scotland and Ireland, today the term is applied to any valley, wherever it may be found, such as in the Highlands of Cape Breton.
Inevitably, Glenora became subject to a lawsuit over its right to use the word "Glen" in a trademark for it's brand name. The battle was fought all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, and when the smoke had cleared away it was Glenora that emerged victorious.
To match a growing reputation as the "black sheep" of the whisky world, a whisky with a darker expression was essential. So was born "The Dark Glen." Gleann Dubh is ours and this Glen is definitely dark. Enjoy "The Dark Glen."
The Dark Glen
Very smooth and rich. Peaty enough to know it's there, but not in your face. Nice character and smooth finish.
