Glen Breton Alexander Keith’s Single Malt Whisky (43% abv) is described as follows:
Eighteen years ago, Glenora distilled several batches of Alexander Keith’s IPA, placed it in bourbon oak barrels and tucked it away in a dark corner of a warehouse in the magical hills of Cape Breton.
After 18 years of quietly maturing, it garnered a wonderful taste of malted barley that was enhanced by the spring waters and apple trees scattered throughout Glenora’s property. The result is a whisky with soft notes of maple cream, butterscotch, and a rounded lingering light applewood finish.
The announcement also notes that “Alexander Keith’s Brewery will be using these same barrels that aged the whisky to age a new beer that will be released in 2022.”
Alexander Keith’s Single Malt Whisky is available now via the Glen Breton website, and at select NSLC stores in Nova Scotia, while supplies last.
