A well-aged, well-rounded Canadian single malt. This particularly bottling comes from the Glenora distillery, found on Canada’s eastern coast in Nova Scotia. The land here is fertile and verdant, with an excellent environment for the production of barley. This whisky has rested for 19 years in American oak bourbon casks, giving it a wonderful sweetness. Like other Glen Breton releases, the malt is at the core of this dram, with delicious toasty and biscuit cereal flavours and a nice salted caramel high-note. Whilst the distillery’s Scottish-sounding name caused a bit of a stir, they were recognised as Distillers of the year in 2011 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
I'm a Canadian living in Spain and I walk into a liquor store looking for a whisky and I see Glen Breton staring me in the face, I've never seen it before and thought I had to try it! I've tried both the 14 and the 19 year, I like them both but I prefer the 19 year. I had a blind whisky tasting party featuring 6 different whisky's, Glen Breton won as the favorite for the night.
