Crown Royal XR Extra Rare

Country: Canada
Type: Canadian
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 40%
Score: 91 points

This is the second in Crown Royal’s XR series, and uses whiskies distilled at the old LaSalle Distillery in Montreal. The nose is light and aromatic with ginger, soft oak, vanilla, honey, and straw notes. The taste has subtle spices at first with a nice buildup of cinnamon. Honey, vanilla, and touches of dark chocolate linger in the background and last through the finish. Good balance, nice and complex.
