Crown Royal managed to squeeze in yet one more addition to its restricted launch Noble Collection earlier than the top of 2021. For this, the sixth launch within the collection, Crown went a bit off script, bottling a wheat whiskey of unspecified age made with 51% winter wheat, 39% corn, and 10% malted barley — as a substitute of the same old rye.
And it’s, definitely, one of the best Noble Assortment launch thus far.
The aroma is deep and sultry with darkish caramels, oak shavings, creamed corn, and torched sugar. A little bit of peach cobbler creeps in with some air, together with a refined spice and extra beautifully-balanced oak. In my expertise, Crown Royal’s whiskies, be they commonplace choices or extra restricted affairs, simply don’t sometimes punch with this sort of wealthy, wood-driven aroma. The palate doesn’t fairly ship on the richness of the aroma, however there’s nonetheless a formidable quantity of complexity to admire with dried stone fruit, honeycomb, applesauce, syrupy caramel, and a little bit of black tea, all well-layered, candy however not overly so, and delivering tons of taste. A wholesome dusting of pie spice and brown sugar carry issues into the end, which is a contact skinny however warming with cinnamon and clove. An ideal winter sipper if there ever was one.
