Glen Breton Ice 19 Year Old - 53.7%- 250ml
Innovator of the Year Award, 2008
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.
