Detailed Description

When the Scotch Whisky Association launched its law suit against Glenora Distillers in 2000, shortly after the release of its first bottling proudly called “Glen Breton Rare”, a media frenzy soon followed in newspapers, magazines, and online newsletters, forums, and blogs. North America’s only Single Malt Whisky distillery was a hot topic amongst the whisky and local cultural communities. Upon victory in the summer of 2009 it was decided to dedicate a bottling to celebrate this epic battle so fittingly called the “Battle of the Glen.”

Glen Breton Rare Battle of Glen 15 Year Old Canadian Single Malt Whisky Tasting Notes

Nose: Subtle, summer-cut applewood, with undertones of Highland honey.

Palate: Taking by surprise, come the waves of malt, powerful, but without overbearing, then a complex orchard of flavour.

Finish: Rich, almost lubricious mouthfeel, The malt withdraws into heat, resolving into the warm caress of an enduring companion, Peat character is very subtle – rather wisps of hardwood smoke, evoking memories of autumn leaves.
