NOSE: Light but rich and complex

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.
|The first exquisite blend of Crown Royal Canadian whisky was meticulously crafted from 50 select whiskies, dressed in the finest cut glass and wrapped in purple robes, to commemorate the first grand tour of Canada by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, in 1939. And in truly noble fashion, this bottle of Crown Royal was placed on the Royal train as a symbol of the hardworking and genuine nature of the Canadian people.
Today, the legacy of Crown Royal remains how it began, the epitome of Canadian whisky, with a smooth taste and a regal style all its own.
