CROWN ROYAL GOLDEN APPLE 23 YEAR WHISKY
GIMLI, MANITOBA, CANADA
Crown Royal? The brand needs no introduction – for many of us, the mere mention of the name takes us back to memories of our first awareness of whisky, and, maybe, to our first exploratory (and thrilling) sips.
But this isn't your father's Crown Royal.
It's a limited edition release that comes to us from the very top of their line: a rare, 23-year whisky that, as befitting its richness and maturity, has been given some pretty regal trimmings: bottled in a golden flask, and swaddled in a luxury suede bag.
Crown's operation might not be the subject of a hipster blogger's fantasies, but it’s a family operation, one committed to local products, a methodical process, and a careful minding of the details. Four-fifths of the grain that went into this ultra-aged, rare whisky (rye, corn, and barley) was sourced from Manitoba and surrounding provinces. Crown's distillers use five different mash bills and twelve different distillation columns to produce the whiskies that made up this blend.
The result, here, is a wonderfully pure and complex whisky, the kind you'll want to nurse over the course of a long, pleasurable night.
And if you think flavored spirits are not your thing, this one's different – it's subtly done, for one thing, with a teasing taste of golden apple that accentuates the notes of toasted oak, baking spices, caramel, and vanilla that carry the dram along to its long, sustained finish.
In our tastings, we preferred it best with a rock or two, the better to preserve its core strength and character.
