I came across this Canadian Whisky today at the LCBO commemorating the 100th Grey Cup Canadian Football Championship which is the Superbowl of Canadian 3 down pig skin football (not soccer). HIstory of this game is here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/100th_Grey_Cup

Jim Murray mentions this specific bottle in his WB 2014 and rates it as 87, a solid recommendation. The bottle describes the expression as "whisky with a hint of maple".
I would have bought 2 bottles, one to drink and one to keep but there was only one bottle on the shelf. Holding on to it for now.

On further research, I discovered that this was the only bottle left in all of the Province of Ontario, counting 634 LCBO stores. I lucked out on this one. (last one standing) Wink

Just looked this up in the whisky bible, sounds like it will have a big hint of maple. Enjoy it Murray if you ever decide to open it.

Sounds ike you got lucky Murray. Gibsons does seem to pick up good reviews and seems to have a good bit of Kentucky bourbon influence across its range. As John says enjoy it if you do decide to open it.

Thanks William and John. The LCBO store where I got the bottle was only 5 minutes from my house. Great luck all around.
