The heart of this dram is Crown Royal's unique batch-base whisky - corn spirit distilled to high abv in small batches then matured in previously used barrels. This is the source of its condensed milk texture. A perennial favorite from coast to coast in Canada, Limited Edition is difficult to find outside Canada. If you're visiting make sure to pick one up.

Tasting Notes

"The nose opens slowly on green apples sprinkled with nutmeg powder and cloves, and displays the dustiness of rye with the sweet vanilla of bourbon. Dry brown hay and dusty grain round it out. The toffee-sweet palate is rich with gingery spices and crisp oakiness on a creamy vanilla custard base. Spicy hot pepper balances a zippy citrus zest. A slight tannic pull precedes a classic grapefruit pith finish. "
