Glen Breton Battle of the Glen 15 Year Old- 750ml

Glen Breton Battle of the Glen 15 Year Old- 750ml

GOLD MEDAL WINNER, BEST REST OF THE WORLD SINGLE MALT WHISKY 13 YEARS & OVER, WHISKY MAGAZINE, 2011.

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.”

TASTING NOTES
Colour: A rare dissolution of gold - at break of dawn, the first brushing of the sun upon the snow-covered lakes of the Bras d’Or;
Nose: Subtle, summer-cut applewood, with undertones of Highland honey;
Taste 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;
Balance: The play between lightness of the whisky and the strength of the malt is a work of harmony and mystery.
