About Gibson’s Finest Venerable 18 Year Old:
Gibson’s Finest Venerable 18 Year Old is an elegant and sophisticated blend of rare 18 Year Old Canadian Whiskies.
Sweetly aromatic and rich in character. A uniquely long velvety finish, this superbly distinctive whisky provides a new experience for discerning rye connoisseurs.
Offered in limited edition, each bottle is individually numbered and bears our seal guaranteering 18 years of ageing.
Although an old whisky, it was time for a new package. Gibson’s Finest 18 year old has kept its smooth and rich quality but decided to update its image. The brand has moved on from its previous simple bottle to something more elaborate, which includes more intricate glasswork and a copper “18 year old” coin instead of the old sticker for quality both inside and out.
Scents of pine sawdust, with loads of oak and the luxurious sweet fragrances of vanilla, toffee, and caramel. Rich yet dry, with lots of spicy rye, fruity rye and dusty rye. A generic sweet rye fruitiness with a contrasting whiff of green wood.
The first sip is rich in caramel, toffee, vanilla, and fresh sweet corn until spicy oak and hints of pepper turn quite hot on the tongue. Rich and oaky. After 18 years in wood, an initial flurry of cedar and fresh sawdust resolves into a fragrant base for a whole range of rich and flavourful delicacies.
Medium finish. Hot and spicy with fading pepper and zesty bitter lemon. Loads of wood and rye spices, then some sweet fruitiness towards the end.
