Ask yourself, how old are you? 20, 30, 40 even? Well, Canadian Club, purveyor of Canadian blended whisky, started crafting Canadian Club 30 Year ($200) long before you had even heard the word whisky. You know, the days of diapers not chinos, Legos instead of promotions… Limited to only 3,000 bottles as a celebration of Canadian Club’s 150th anniversary, the 30 year can be best described as summarily smooth unlike you’ve ever experienced. Most likely because a man should never tire of drinking history.
You’d expect a lot of wood notes in a 30-year-old, as did I, but this bright amber panacea initially hits with a spicy bananas foster flavor (caramel, honey, bananas, spice), then mellows to a smooth rye. The 80 proof Canadian is certainly one of the better whisky’s we’ve tried and god knows we’ve tried a lot. Consider it a fantastic gift for dad, a best man offering, or a drink to hide deep in the bowels of your bar and reached for on nights when you need a reminder there are things (or drinks) larger than the problems at hand. FYI: Canadian Club 30 year is not an easy find.
