Crown Royal is making an extraordinary craft addition to its product line with the introduction of Crown Royal XO, an ultra-premium blended Canadian whisky, handcrafted by Crown Royal Master Blender Andrew MacKay. The unique blend of more than 50 of Crown Royal’s finest whiskies is finished in cognac casks from the French Limousin Forest, resulting in a complex expression of the signature blend.
Crown Royal XO can be enjoyed neat or on the rocks to fully experience the liquid’s complex flavor, or as the key ingredient in a number of classic cocktail recipes. It will be sold at a suggested retail price of $49.99 for a 750 ml bottle and is available nationwide now.
The packaging for Crown Royal XO displays premium colors of gray and gold paired with a variation on the iconic bag, gray with gold embroidery accents. The unique bottle displays an extraordinary smooth silhouette with gold accents.
Here’s quick run down on what you will be tasting, Oak, vanilla, and dried cherries
which brings to the palate an elegant whisky deliciously balanced with hints of vanilla, spice and rich dried fruit closing with an impeccably smooth finish. If you’re a Crown Royal fan, I’m here to tell you its better than the standard CR and CR black. I wont go as far as to say its better than the XR but it comes close. Either way for $50, you wont find too many XO’s better than Crown Royal’s.
