Gibson’s Finest 100th Grey Cup Limited Edition

Country: Canada
Type: Canadian
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 40%
Score: 83 points

This limited-edition bottling honors the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Football League’s Grey Cup, and had some help from Glenfiddich Malt Master Brian Kinsman. Gibson’s and Glenfiddich are both owned by William Grant & Sons, and Brian created the special blend of Gibson’s with a touch of Canadian maple syrup for this expression. The nose is very complex with butterscotch, mild rye, burnt vanilla, and mild cloves. The taste is peppery, but sweet with a nice touch of maple syrup, along with a touch of tartness and a creamy mouthfeel. The finish is long with a soft pepperiness and sweet notes of maple syrup and brown sugar. (January, 2013)
