Crown Royal Canadian Whisky XR Extra Rare

Crown Royal Canadian Whisky XR Extra Rare 750ML    
Sku: 17008

This limited-edition blend is made with the last remaining batch of whisky distilled at the LaSalle Distillery. It offers a full-bodied bouquet with a creamy, rounded finish.

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.
