This will be a special gift to my sister for Christmas. Last year I bought her a bottle of Glen Breton 10 year old, and she loved it. She has recommended it to every whisky drinker she knows.
I recently purchased my second bottle of the 18-year old. It's definitely on the expensive side but well worth it in my opinion. Although I prefer Islay-based whiskys, I make an exception for this one. It's exceptionally smooth and I love the taste.
All the incredible flavours from fragrance to finish. Nutty, woody, earthy, sweet, and a little subtle fruit. Delicious.
Exceptional quality whisky. Makes me proud to say I’m Canadian.
This review was dictated to me by my sister. She receive this whisky as a gift from me. She does not have the Internet so this is her review. Cape Breton can be proud of their Gaelic Culture & this great single malt whisky that their Motherland would call its own. It is smooth full bodied with an interesting nose especially caramel with a golden amber colour. It makes a very fine gift for the whisky aficionado.
Breathtaking! When I take that first sip, if it causes that warmth that suffuses my throat and stomach, then releases every saliva gland I have and takes my breath away for a few moments, I know I've had the best. This does exactly that!
...but a little bit too expensive. I bought 2 so far and I am very parsimonious.
