    I'm normally a bourbon drinker, but a Canadian friends keeps bringing me a different bottle of Gibson's every time he comes home from a visit. This is a bold, strong flavored whiskey. Spicy and strong brown sugar tones. Highly recommended!

    Quite smooth with more peppery and smokey notes than they're average rare that you can get for about the same price.

    A slight improvement on a classic bottom shelf blend. The higher proof and reasonable age statement are appreciated, but the finished product is still lacking. Would make for a good mixer.

    Not much to complain about coming in at under $30 Canadian for a 750ml 8yr at 46 % abv. It's more complex than anything else at this price point except Alberta Premium Dark Horse, and Wisers tripple barrel but it does have a higher abv than both....There is a significant rye influence, and the added 3-4 years in the barrel does up the intensity of the vanilla and overall sweetness as well. My biggest gripe with Gibson's bold 8 is the marketing and the obvious added colouring. it's not just a bit of color its a damn lot!! And these are not even virgin oak casks...Has the same colour as a 30yo first fill at least... It's also being marketed as the perfect mixer for rye and cola. So there's that...But it sure doesn't taste like crap. It's good. 3/5
