Crown Royal is probably the mose widely known and certainly one of the more widely available Canadian Whisky on the market. Currently, it's the top-selling Canadian whisky in the United States. The distillery is, of course, located in Canada.
This is their flagship whisky that is also known as Crown Royal DeLuxe and is mixed mercilessly everywhere in the US in coke. Despite being blended, it's considered a 10yr whisky (meaning that all whiskies are no younger than 10 years).
Opening nose hints of pine tar, dark caramel and maple syrup with subtle notes of brown sugar and honey. Palate entry has a silk texture; at midpalate there’s a minor explosion of dried fruit and chocolate cherry flavor. Concludes quiet and mild. Best Buy. (8/1/2004) 85-89 points Wine Enthusiast.
San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold Medal Winner for 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010, and 2012
