Note

One of our fans suggested we experiment with the award winning Nova Scotia winery Jost Vineyards, requesting to use one of their oak barrels. Jost Vineyards agreed, and supplied us with the barrel used to make their Ortega Ice Wine. We decided to use it for finishing one of our cask strength whiskies. Ice Wine is powerful in its own unique way, which is why Glenora tasted the whisky each day as it picked up trace hints of sweetness and fruit from the Ortega Ice Wine grapes. After 4 months we felt the ideal finish was achieved, leaving us with a truly unique whisky.
