Whisky Review: Crown Royal Reserve Canadian Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on January 28, 2010

Crown Royal was first produced in 1939 to commemorate the arrival of the first Royal Tour in Canada of King George VI and Queen Elisabeth.  The distinctive crown shaped bottle, and royal purple bag for which Crown Royal Canadian Whisky is famous for, were created in honor of this occasion.

Today Crown Royal is one of the best known brands of Canadian Whisky in the world .  The Reserve was developed by Master Blender, Andrew Mackay,  at the Gimli Distillery near Winnipeg, Manitoba.  This whisky is aged a little longer than the regular Crown Royal for a smoother taste profile .  Here is a link to the  Crown Royal Whisky website.

I have included a cocktail suggestion with the review as well as a highball drink which I like very much.  Here is an excerpt from the review:

Crown Royal Reserve is a little soft in the mouth.  Its flavour profile includes a little spicy rye and a little dank bourbon and corn flavour.   The whisky is smooth with a mild sweetness, a gentle vanilla, and a gentle spiciness.  A soft but firm firm oak nestles in the background….”
