Crown Royal is “THE” Canadian Whisky. Sure, there are those who might argue with that from a preference perspective, but no one can argue that this 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 litres of water. At any given point in time, there are more than two million barrels of Whisky aging in a 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 a Whisky lover. And their famous velvet bags embracing each bottle are collected and re-used by a legion of their raving fans.
 
So, what makes Crown Royal Extra Rare XR so special? Well, as we’ve mentioned, Crown Royal makes a LOT of Whisky. They have several distilleries cranking out quality product day and night. But Crown Royal XR is all produced in one spot, at the small batch LaSalle Distillery on Montreal Island, and the “where” makes all of the difference indeed. All the folks in Canada have known for years that there is something about that spot that makes the Whisky a tad bit smoother, and a tad bit sweeter.
 
This stuff can be hard to get your hands on. Right… that’s what “rare” means. Heck, they completely ran out of the stuff a few years ago. But if you are a fan of the Crown Royal line up, or even just a fan of Canadian Whisky, this should be on your list. It is light and smooth and spot on spicy in all of the right places, an embodiment of what Canadian Whisky really should be.

Dustin,
Nothing Special flavor wise. I still prefer Crown Black for flavor and finish at 1/3 the cost!

Sweet smooth and finishes oaky
Jon
Jon,
Nice light amber color, and it coats the glass. I get the rye spice and a little caramel on the nose...On the palate it's definitely dry, more rye spice and oak... some sense of sweetness or vanilla but I had so hoped for that maple syrup flavor and I sure don't find that. No punch at 40% abc, little to mention on the finish. Reminds me of a light Lowland single malt. No I wouldn't pay $150 a bottle for this, but it's pleasant enough and quite a mild blended Canadian whisky. 7.4 stars.

Nathan,
Very smooth Whiskey with a good nose, but it was a little flat on my palate. You are definitely paying a premium for the name.

David,
This whiskey is smooth and tasty; however, hardly worth the $150 price tag you will pay here or elsewhere. I would take Crown XO ($50 bottle) over the XR any day of the week.

Shockingly smooth, lighter and sweeter. Not sure what it costs but I'd imagine it's more affordable than most of their offerings, will need a bottle
