Glen Breton ICE 12 Year Old - 700ml- - 40% Alc/vol
Winner of International Gold Medal - 2016 - New York Wine and 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 Jost Vineyards, an award wining 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.
Tasting Notes: Nose: Fruity, a little dry, sweet & delicious, ripe grapes Colour: Gold Taste: Hint of vanilla and wine Finish: Wine flavour, fruity, and a little sweet.
Bought as a Christmas gift for my son I had this whiskey before it’s great tasting.Unfortunately they only had 1 left when I Ordered or I would have gotten 1 got myself so I settled for 10yr old Ice .Try it you love it.
