Canadian Whisky gets bad rap in the rest of the world for being a bit of a basic dram that’s only good for mixing. The standard release of Crown Royal is no different.
The Crown Royal distiller was set up in 1939 to celebrate the visit of King George VI and his wife, Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother). Since then, the whole operation has been centralised to one site in Gimli, Manitoba. The sprawling site host the stills and all the warehouses were 50 different kinds of whisky are produced and blended to create the different expressions.
Sadly, this expression isn’t that great. Boring and flat with a finish that simple doesn’t exist. It may well be good for mixers but if you had no knowledge of that you may well be fooled into thinking the fancy packaging holds something incredible inside when it simply does not.
