Crown Royal Noble Collection 13 Year Blender's Mash
A very smooth drink undiluted. Yes, no bold flavors stand out but there is a slight hint of sweet honey and oak.
If you want something that hits the pallet with a stronger Canadian Rye and honey/oak profile then try Alberta Premium Dark Horse for about the same price point.
Tastes like medicine - hell no. Crown Royal is suburb for its price point. An easy drinking dram.
As a Canadian expat now living in Sweden, Crown Royal is a welcome, warm taste of home...when I can get someone to bring me a bottle when they visit, that is. Vanilla wrapped in oak...hints of black pepper...a nice little bite on the finish. No, it's not single malt...but it's not trying to be. It's good, honest whiskey with no pretense.
Just bought this. Quite like an Irish, but so easy drinking. I'll be buying it again.
