Crown Royal takes a break from its Noble Collection with this new launch, an 18 12 months outdated whisky dubbed Further Uncommon. The whisky is billed as “an beautiful mix of three of the model’s most distinctive whiskies” — however past that, particulars are scarce.
The softness endemic to Canadian whisky is abundantly current right here, a frivolously doughy nostril rising alongside notes of toasted sesame seeds, a contact of oak, and — curiously — some notes of camphor. It definitely smells youthful than 18 years of age, and it tastes youthful too. The whisky is extraordinarily muted, once more with notes of frivolously toasted sesame oil lacing by means of a simple (however mild) vanilla caramel core. Parts of wheat crackers and a little bit of vegetation quickly arrive, giving issues a grassy, barely weedy character as issues construct on the tongue. The end has some pepper within the combine, however not a lot. I’m no fiend for top abv whiskies, however this can be a case the place the next proof might have actually helped the spirit make a bit extra of an affect. On the naked minimal 40% abv, the whisky finally fades away like a cloud within the wind. Innocent however forgettable.
