Glen Breton Ice 10 Year Old

Glen Breton Ice Bottling Note

A Canadian single malt from the Glenora distillery in Nova Scotia, bottled as Glen Breton. This bottling can proudly boast its status as the first 'Ice Wine' finished whisky. The ice wine barrels used were from Nova Scotia's Just Winery. Extraordinary.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Really fascinating, sticky toffee pudding and ginger nut biscuits, and a really curious balancing savoury note, something herbal, possibly even lemon grass?

Palate: Sweet, as expected, though just the right side of cloying. Quite oily with a solid note of char, both rich bourbon barrels and Ice Wine barriques showing through, a very light peat, tingling spices, stem ginger in syrup, smoky ginger and cappuccino, apple wood.

Finish: Tingling heat and gentle Kentucky smoke, nutmeg.

Overall: Just incredible, utterly unique and jaw-dropping!

User Reviews of the Glen Breton Ice 10 Year Old

A pleasant surprise

I had heard of a previous bottling being riddled with an unsavoury flavour. The current bottling had no hints of this. Quite enjoyable.

An unusual nose to say the least. Young, raw, grainy dried fruits mingle with a serious amount of oak. There is some honeyed sweetness and citrus aromas lurking in the background but the sawdusty-vanillins and sugared almond notes are the dominant aromas. It seems a lot younger than 10 years old.

The palate is slightly oily, with the oak hitting the palate full on with a hint of citrus freshness and some winey honey. After the piquant alcohol has passed some sticky sweet lime and butterscotch remains. I have to say that neat the flavours all come through on the finish, and it’s just a tad sticky for my liking.

With water it’s weird. It seems like the components have split apart and it’s oily and fresh at the same time. Very odd! The palate has become very watery and sweet, there are a lot of winey cask notes and then it fades pretty quickly. It seems to me that if you take away the cask it doesn’t have a great deal of character.
