The flagship of Canadian Whiskies is a blend of the finest that Canada has to offer.
Crown Royal is "THE" Canadian Whisky. Sure, you might argue preference, but no one can argue that it is the top selling brand of Canadian Whisky in the world. Each day, their Manitoba Distillery alone consumes 10,000 bushels of grain and 3.4 million liters of water, and there are more than two million barrels of Whisky aging in the complex of 46 warehouses. On top of all that, they do a darn good job of producing a consistently high quality, clean-drinking, Canadian-styled Spirit that has won the hearts of many Whisky-lovers. And their famous velvet bags embracing each bottle are collected and re-used by their legion of raving fans.
By our last count, Crown Royal has a seventeen varieties in their current lineup that might still be available here and there. But Crown Royal Canadian Whisky is the dram at the center of it all. It was first created in 1939 to celebrate the royal visit of King George VI. But the quality of the blend was so good and the edition was so popular that it remained and became the central identifying brand of the entire company. This is a blend of 50 different Whiskies that are famously combined "like baking a cake" to craft the signature profile. The exact mix of mash bills and ages is left unknown and the Canadians are too polite to ask. But by law, all of them must be aged at least three years.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is crisp and bright with notes of brittle toffee, vanilla, a dash of cinnamon, apple, and menthol.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate confirms the nose and opens softly with notes of spiced apples, oak, caramel, and vanilla custard.
The finish is medium-length with a trailing spice.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Crown Royal Fine De Luxe Blended Canadian Whisky (1.75L) and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
