Crown Royal is a blended Canadian Whisky line going back. Seagrams and the Bronfman family with the introduction of the Crown Royal Whisky in honor of the maiden visit of King George and Queen Elizabeth to Canada in 1939. Made with over 50 distinct whiskies in the blend it has always been one of the more recognized of the Canadian Whiskies. Over time many other line extensions such as Crown Royal Deluxe, Crown Royal Black ,Crown Royal Reserve, Crown Royal XO, Crown Royal Extra Rare, and this their latest, Crown Royal Monarch 75th Anniversary Blend for their 75th anniversary of the visit and the brand. There is all a Crown Royal Maple Finished Whisky.
This is a special anniversary blend using more of their fabled Coffey still rye whiskey stocks than the norm and a special whiskey from that still in particular (unfortunately not specified). Created by their Master Blender Andrew Mackay this is a very limited edition whisky that will probably be sold out rather quickly with all the whisky craze going on these days so I would suggest getting your bottle while you can.
Nose: Nicely mellow toffee and rye spice notes with hints of cinnamon and whispers of nutmeg ver the toffee and rye notes Palate: Smooth and relatively sweet entry for a rye, with vanilla, caramel, dried fruits, figs, preserved bananas, and slightly drying with a spicy finish that is slightly warming with a pleasant aftertaste of barrel char and vanillins in the pleasantly lingering finish. Finish: A very nicely done example of what is possible by a master blender with a stock of whiskey to create a signature blend.
