The whisky is very light, yet surprisingly sharp. I find it's often one that I use to introduce friends to whisky, and it does pretty well because of its approachability. It still retains some signature crown royal fruitiness, bourbon nods, and rye backing - but it is a bit lighter and silkier than many of the other bottlings. I find I enjoy it more with each sip!
Nose: Bourbon notes, with lots of fruit from grapes to orange, along with floral elements like orange blossom with some firm rye still in the background. Light, yet rich.
Taste: Light and sharp, with grape, apricot, and other fruit, along with some spice. Well balanced and elegant.
Finish: Light and grainy, with some green grape and nutmeg, oak, vanilla, and a touch of spice.
