Crown Royal XO
Whisky AdvocateA rich luxurious whisky finished in cognac casks, as was the crisper, brighter Cask No, 16 that it replaces. This is the cedary, leathery, tobacco-ish sipping whisky of the private club. Simple toffee and the cherry essence of Beaujolais nouveau evolve into ripe red apples and heavy, dusky, dark fruit with candied citrus peel, bitter almond skins, and a hint of oak. Sizzling gingery spice and white pepper linger over textured sandalwood. Defined by its heavy, creamy body. - DdeK
Wine EnthusiastMade with a blend of more than 50 whiskies and then finished in former Cognac casks, this mellow, honey-hued sipper offers vanilla, creamy caramel and fresh apple notes, finishing moderately long with allspice and cinnamon.
