Crown Royal 75th Anniversary Blend
Crown Royal // Manitoba, Canada
This marks the 75th anniversary of the 1st visit to Canada by any reigning monarchs; King George VI & Queen Elizabeth were the ones to embark on the trip. In anticipation of their arrival, Crown Royal whisky was created as a gift to them and thus, this anniversary is a celebration of that event as well. This differs from the original with a higher rye content. This is a limited edition release and will only be available in the US.
CanadianDISTILLED IN CANADA AND AGED IN BARRELS FOR AT LEAST THREE YEARS; OFTEN (BUT NOT ALWAYS) CANADIAN WHISKIES ARE BLENDS OF CORN, BARLEY, AND RYE WHISKIES WHICH WERE DISTILLED AND MATURED SEPARATELY. TRADITIONALLY, CANADIAN WHISKEY IS CALLED “RYE”, ALTHOUGH NO MINIMUM PERCENTAGE OF RYE-GRAIN WHISKY IS REQUIRED IN A BLEND.
"The usual suspects appear on the nose with a vanilla and char smoke, but the whisky really shines on the palate. The dried fruit and barrel spices integrate well with the whisky brand's signature smooth finish. The rye in the whisky seems to provide depth and enhance the fruit. If you haven’t had Crown Royal in a while, seek this one out; it may surprise you."
