Crown Royal was introduced in 1939 by Samuel Bronfman as a luxury Canadian whisky launched under the Seagram’s umbrella. The whisky was a tribute to the royal tour of Canada by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. It was sold exclusively in Canada until 1964, and since has been distributed to many parts of the globe.
THE FLAVOR PROFILE
Light caramel and vanilla notes. Distinctive sweet grain sherried aroma immediately recognizable as Crown Royal. Cinnamon baking spices lift a semi-sweet palate that features very few rough edges.
Canadian Whisky is produced in Canada and often is a multi-grain blend that is fairly corn heavy, with features of rye being common. Typically on the sweeter side of the whisky spectrum, favored by many for their soft characteristics.
