NOSE: Baking spices, cereal, light wood spices
PALATE: Gentle oak note, rich butterscotch, spiced vanilla, develops into soft peppery notes
FINISH: Smooth and creamy
Ji m Murray's 2016 World Whiskies of the year points - The only vaguely roasted oak and cashew notes on the nose offer no hint to the rich, sweet, honey-coated wood notes and red berry that spin out on the palate. The finish offers further surprises: green spearmint, dark sap and licorice.
Notably soft and plush, look for pleasing hints of vanilla and marzipan alongside fleeting fresh apple and pineapple notes. It mingles together into an oaky, spicy finish, with clove and cinnamon sparks. Sip or mix. - K.N.
This legendary whisky, created in 1939 to celebrate the visit of the King of England, has a blend of fifty distinct, full-bodied whiskies matured in white oak barrels. Crown Royal has a taste profile defined by smoothness, enhanced by a rich, lingering finish.
|The first exquisite blend of Crown Royal Canadian whisky was meticulously crafted from 50 select whiskies, dressed in the finest cut glass and wrapped in purple robes, to commemorate the first grand tour of Canada by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, in 1939. And in truly noble fashion, this bottle of Crown Royal was placed on the Royal train as a symbol of the hardworking and genuine nature of the Canadian people.
Today, the legacy of Crown Royal remains how it began, the epitome of Canadian whisky, with a smooth taste and a regal style all its own.
