Crown Royal Deluxe
Crown Royal // Manitoba, Canada
Created in 1939 for the impending month long royal tour of Canada of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. It was the first time a ruling monarch had visited Canada and was a huge success judging by the hundreds of thousands who turned up. The whisky is a blend of 50 different whiskies of varying grains and oak casks all distilled at the Gimli distillery in Manitoba and taken from their vast inventory of over a million barrels.
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.
"Sweet maple notes and concord grapes along with vanilla and soft wood spices are a few of the descriptors you'll note. The texture of the whisky is one of the most notable features of the whisky which is as smooth and soft as the royal purple sack with which your bottle is wrapped."
