Alcohol Review: Glen Breton Ice 10 Year Old (Canadian Whisky)

Howdy everyone, today I'll be reviewing a gift that I got from a good friend of mine, a bottle of Glen Breton Ice 10 Year Old.

Looks: Light golden, a bit oily, still poured well.
Smells: Malty, biscuits, grass, a light touch of toffee.
Tastes: Sweet, light peat, spices, ginger, a bit oily.

Looks: 4/5 - Beautiful color that really shines off the casks it was aged in.
Smells: 4/5 - Great aroma, delicate and sweet, not too strong.
Tastes: 9/10 - Aging in ice wine barrels gave it quite a unique taste, offering something new to what most whisky drinkers are used to.
Overall: 18/20 - It really doesn't taste like a 10 year old bottle. Its just plain amazing, it really offers something new that you won't taste in typical Scotch Whiskys.

PS: For those of you who say might say I spelled "Whisky" wrong - think again. American and English "Whiskeys" are different from Canadian and Scottish "Whiskys", as they have kept the old original ways of spelling it.
