|Glen Breton Rare Canadian Single Malt Whisky - Glenora Distillery (Canada). An aromatic whisky presenting a pleasing golden-yellow colour highlighted with hints of amber and orange. The nose is medium-bodied, but pleasantly fiery, offering a tight combination of butterscotch, heather, honey and ground ginger with elongated, wood-infused undertones.
The flavor is light to medium-bodied with a noticeable alcohol expression. It's creamy with a good flow of toasty wood, almond, caramel and just the subtle suggestion of charcoal and earthy peat. The finish lingers, ending with a quick bite of light, raw wood. Adding a thimble full of spring water balances the initial hit of alcohol and softens the nose by bringing forward the fresh, fruit essence of orange, citrus and sweet grain.
The mix also fills in the back palate by adding a stronger impression of malt. Overall, Glenora Distillery has created a clean, expressive eight-year-old whisky with a well-defined edge of sophistication and an undeniable, one-of-a-kind flavour.
