This product is currently sold out.
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.”
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.
