The Glenlee Blended Bottling Note
A whisky created in honour of the Glenlee, a ship built in 1896. It was one of ten steel sailing ships commissioned by Archibald Sterling & Co., and sailed round the globe four times! In the 1980s, the boat was forgotten and derelict, but today it is fully restored to its former glory. You can find said ship next to the Maritime Museum at Glasgow Harbour. Anyway, onto the whisky! The Glenlee is a delicious blend of Scotch whisky, matured in a combination of American oak and casks from Spain for three years.
