Glen Breton Ice 10 Year Old Single Malt Canadian Whisky
Glen Breton Ice is their 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.
