Seagram's VO was first blended in 1913 by Joseph E. Seagram at his Waterloo, Ontario distillery to celebrate his son's wedding. What exactly Joseph Seagram meant the 'VO' to stand for has been lost to time but 'very own' and 'very old' are the most popular theories.

Seagram's Waterloo distillery closed in 1992 and VO has since been produced at Diageo's distillery in Valleyfield, Quebec, with, we believe, some whiskies in the blend also coming from other distilleries.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 15/08/2011

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden yellow.

Aroma:

Grainy nose with spicy woody aromas somewhat reminiscent of cigarette ashtray (in a good way). Rum-like fruitiness with overripe pineapple and banana aromas.

Taste:

Dry oak influenced spicy palate which starts sweet but turns bitter with a wet wood smoke flavour.

Aftertaste:

Lingering spicy finish with ginger cake and lasting cedar woody bitterness which is strangely appealing.
