Review
Crown Royal XR leads with solid oak which is present without being too overpowering. Underneath the oak is sweet caramel along with subtle almond and cinnamon. All in all, a delightful and well integrated nose. The entry for Crown Royal XR is soft and lightly sweet with a core of oak flavor. Things open up in the mid palate with more expansive oak and some light spice and heat. From the nose to the midpalate you get a real sense of the quality old LaSalle whisky in the blend, but at the end of the mid palate, the whisky reveals its true colors when a much younger corn whiskey peeks its head out and begins to take over. The younger whisky comes in as a touch of heat as the rest of the flavors begin to really thin out. That young whisky also dominates the finish, which is thin and underwhelming a complete mismatch from the rest of the whisky.

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.
