This expression was released as part of Crown Royal’s 75th anniversary. It’s a blend of whiskies with no age statement, and it’s bottled at 40% ABV.
Nose: Earthy and musty – mild and fleeting overall.
Palate: Delicate and sweet with honey, earthy oak, cinnamon, and pepper.
Finish: A little heat but very little of anything else beyond a slight earthy note from the oak.
Rating: 74/100 – Quite bland overall unfortunately.
Value for the money: This retails around $70, and it’s an easy pass for me. I think this one would be better suited around $25.
