Whiskey Advocate Rated 91 Points
Vanilla and oak nose, with a creamy layer of mint that warns you: Rye Ahead. And what a sweet rye wave it is, rolling in with green mint and grass, more bourbony oak and vanilla, lively spice on the top (with enough heat to keep it bold), and a finish that brings everything together. Beautifully integrated, and not overly woody, a tribute to the blending art of Canadian distillers.
|A blend of fifty whiskies finished in rare cognac casks made out of oak from the Limousin forest in France, and marked "16” to represent their place of origin.
The cask finishing imparts subtle hints of rich, dried fruit and creates the balanced yet complex taste of Crown Royal Cask No. 16.
