Gibson’s Finest 100th Grey Cup Limited Edition
Gibson's Finest // Ontario, Canada
Gibson’s Finest released this Canadian whisky in 2012 to commemorate the Canadian Football League’s 100th Grey Cup. Fittingly called Gibson’s Finest 100th Grey Cup Limited Edition whisky, it was a one-off blend. It’s no longer available unless you stumble across a fumbled dusty bottle waiting patiently on a store shelf.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
"A pronounced two point conversion of maple sugar and maple syrup don’t get in the way of the whisky’s oak wood influence. Instead, maple punctuates the whisky which also has its share of hot pepper spice, creamy vanilla and butterscotch. The finish is slightly herbal and dries out nicely. Just resist the touchdown celebration if you find a bottle. That will get you a flag."
