Glen Breton Rare 10 Year
Glen Breton // Nova Scotia, Canada
This is Glenora Distillery's defining whisky. The Glen Breton name has been a source of legal issues since before the whisky was even released. The Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) claimed that "Glen" is a name used only for Scotch whiskies and that this Canadian whisky could be misleading for international buyers. Since "Scotch" doesn't appear on the label and Glen Barton clearly markets itself as a Canadian whisky, the lawsuit was eventually dropped after a 9 year battle. This single malt whisky was aged for 10 years in American oak barrels.
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.
