Glen Breton Ice 17 Year
Glen Breton // Nova Scotia, Canada
Canada’s wine makers garnered fame on the International scene with ice wine. So when a Glenora Distillery fan suggested that they experiment with ex-ice wine barrels, the Glen Breton Ice series was born. Nova Scotia’s Jost Vineyards supplied the ice wine barrels for finishing and Glenora supplied the cask-strength single malt whisky. This 17 year old whisky spent a brief four months in the ice wine casks. It is bottled in 250ml sized bottles and is not available for sale in the US.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"Chocolate and vanilla are at hand in the fixed and very hot nose. The ice wine influence is very subtle with just a morsel of grape and lychee fruit. The heat continues on the palate where it builds with a touch of bitterness into a strong and fast burst of spice. Tannins from the oak dominate in the medium finish with a splash of citrus. Water helps accent the fruits and calm the heat."
