NOSE: Light but rich and complex
PALATE: Lightlysweet with spicy notes of Canadian rye
FINISH: Long, peppery and warm
Wine Enthusiast 89 points - The second release in Crown’s Extra Rare Whisky Series, this XR (Extra Rare) blend is made with the final batch of whiskies from Montreal’s LaSalle Distillery. The amber liquid has a distinct fruity note, melding touches of vanilla and apple, and a long caramel-flavored finish that’s marked with hints of clove and allspice. Velvety in texture, this feels on the hot side, and is best when diluted with water, which adds softness. - K.N. (Sep 2012)
Taste the rarest in our Extra Rare Whisky Series, handcrafted with a unique blend that includes the final batch of whiskies from the renowned LaSalle distillery. Located on the island of Montreal, the LaSalle distillery produced whiskies with a unique richness, attributed to the fine water surrounding the island. The resulting whiskies were full-bodied and exceptionally smooth.
Experience its sophisticated blend of dried fruits and honey in a harmonious balance with spicy notes of Canadian rye, finishing in a lovely, round taste of raisins, cocoa and brown sugar.
