Crown Royal Blender Mark Balkenende selected 100% Coffey Rye for this blend. This coveted whisky distilled in a Coffey column still is made from a high-rye mash bill of corn, rye and malted barley. The spirit is aged in new oak for seven to nine years. Crown Royal runs their Coffey Still once a year continuously for a five-week period to produce this whisky. It’s the cornerstone of Crown Royal’s signature blend. Ontario exclusive of 30,000 bottles

    DISTILLED 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.

Tasting Notes

"Lush oak pencil shavings stylishly blended with toffee sweetness and banana on the nose. It’s incredibly creamy on the palate with a tight, cohesive collection of cloves, brown sugar and buttery vanilla. Mid-palate spicy rye peppers crackle the rest of the way with oak that’s brimming with confidence. "
