New Canadian Club 30 yr. “150th Anniversary”

June 9th, 2008

A package showed up unexpectedly at the Malt Advocate office today from Beam Global. It turns out to be a sample of a 30 year old Canadian Club which will be released later this year.  As far as I know, this is the oldest Canadian whisky ever released.

The purpose of this special release is to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of Canadian Club. I see that it’s bottled at a standard 80 proof, but other than that I don’t know any more about the whisky. Until I try it, that is, which I hope to do this sometime this week. I’ll post up my thoughts afterwards.

    I have a little more information on this product. It’s official name will be Canadian Club 30 year old, and it will retail for $150-$199, depending on the market. Release date: sometime this fall.

    CC’s current ad campaign uses the slogan “Damn right your dad drank it.” In the case of this particular 30 year old offering, that could, quite literally, be true! I went to their website and was surprised to find out that they offer whisky in 40%, 41.3%, and 50% strengths. Is anything but the 40% available here?

    I recently had a bottle of the 100 proof stuff. I believe it was a six year old. I think the PR company for CC gets an RSS feed of this blog, so if they are lurking out there, maybe they can respond in greater detail.
