2021 Gold Medal Winner | New York International Spirits Competition
GOLD MEDAL & SILVER MEDAL WINNER, SAN FRANCISCO WORLD SPIRITS COMPETITION
Glen Breton Ice is our single malt whisky finished in an ice wine barrel.
At the suggestion from a Glen Breton fan, Glenora approached an award winning Nova Scotia winery, requesting to use one of their oak barrels once used for their Ortega Ice Wine to finish one of Glenora's cask strength whiskies. With the partnership in place the experiment began.
Because ice wine is powerful in its own unique way Glenora tasted the whisky each day as it picked up trace hints of sweetness and fruit from the grape.
After 4 months it was felt that the ideal finish was achieved. - 57.2% Alc/vol GLEN BRETON RARE ICE 10 YR: Nose: Honey, Cinnamon, Apple, Vanilla Palate: Grape Peel, Sweet Apple, Vanilla, Hazelnuts, Spice Finish: Lingering Cherry, Wine, Ginger, Cedar
Cask strength 10yr Ice
Good flavour, a very nice and surprisingly smooth whiskey. Lighter in colour than the similar 15yr version, but more flavourful. I prefer this one over the similar 15yr version.
