This weeks Whiskey on Wednesday comes from across the pond, Crown Royal⠀
Crown Royal is a Canadian Blended Whisky, it's the most popular De Luxe Whiskey in Canada. This one has always been a favourite of mine, so naturally was going to feature on 'Whiskey on Wednesday'.⠀
Taste wise it's a full-bodied whisky, yet delicately smooth and creamy, with hints of oak and vanilla. Robust with hints of fruit, and a long, lingering finish.⠀
For me it's an everyday whisky, but also one you can break out with guests around, or simply enjoy by itself on an occasion to treat yourself. The bottle design is fantastic, with the velvet bag it comes in adding a slight bit of class.
However I do feel it's a little let down by the plastic screw cap. That doesn't derive from the liquid though, which is the most important part of any bottling!⠀
And anyway, at a price point of around €40 per bottle, you can't expect too much more. Fantastic drop of Whisky, one that will suit any whisky drinkers pallete.⠀
