Texas Crown Club Ultra Premium
Texas Crown Club // Canada
The name of the whisky, the label with oil rigs, and even the cloth sack that comes with the bottle (a Texas flag, no less) all scream "Texas" so you might assume that this is a produced in, um, oh I don't know, Texas. And you would be wrong. This is a Canadian whisky, silly. We know it is distilled from corn, rye, and "other premium ingredients," per their website. And now y'all know it is Canadian.
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 nose is pretty neutral with some sweet corn and barrel spices found if you really, really try. Sweet caramel hits the tongue and the whiskey feels soft and round on your palate. The finish isn't very long, but what you are left with is gently sweet and ever so slightly bitter."
