Glenora Distillery, Nova Scotia, Canada
At the time, I had mentioned the existence of a Glen Breton having been matured in barrels of ice wine, and moreover bottled by force of the barrel, that is to say a solid 62.2% alcohol.
Here is no other form of ceremony the much anticipated Glen Breton Ice 10 years Cask Strength.
As the French playwright, poet and journalist Jean-Louis Aubert, whom some know better as theAbbot Aubert (1731-1814) said so well:
The man is ice with the treasures he possesses; He is fiery for all that he does not have.
Classic Glenora cereal, coupled with a sweet wind from icewine. Apart from that, nothing to impress the gallery.
Arrival in the muscular mouth, barley, spices of Cask Strength, acid honey, lemon and orange. Its alcohol content is surprisingly not too invasive, and even enhances a malt that would be otherwise flat.
Long and spicy, it is helped by its degree of alcohol and its particular cask. We imagine here small gilded on the island of Orleans.
Normally this expression would not have excited me too much but I must say that its strength in alcohol and its unique finish have me to wear ...
