Review: Crown Royal Salted Caramel Whisky

by Jeff Ellingson

Crown Royal Salted Caramel Whisky was just released.  The felt bag included is pumpkin orange.  It is a Limited Edition seasonal variety, and one of four flavored whiskies Crown currently produces.  The other flavors include Crown Royal Apple, Vanilla, and Maple.  They recently retired Crown Royal Honey.  Each flavor starts with the signature Crown Royal base that was first created in 1939 as a gift for the King and Queen of England when they became the first reigning Monarchs to visit Canada.  Pure water sourced from Lake Winnipeg naturally filtered through the limestone beneath and a grain blend of rye, corn, and barley are used to create Crown Royal.  Roughly 80% of the grain used is sourced from Manitoba and surrounding Provinces.  Twelve distillation columns produce the fifty whiskies that comprise the Crown Royal signature blend.  This is the result of 5 different recipes aged for varying periods of time in either new or re-use charred oak barrels.  Once the whiskies have been aged to the blenders satisfaction, they are meticulously blended.  Natural flavors are infused before bottling at 70 proof.The aroma is caramel apple and cinnamon spice with a Canadian whisky backing.  The sweet Canadian whisky entry has vanilla and apple flavor joined by lightly salted runny caramel taste.  The dangerously smooth fade finishes with southing warmth, a gentle sting, salted caramel, sweet cinnamon, and whisky flavor.  Crown Royal Salted Caramel Whisky is not an over sweet liqueur tasting flavored whisky.  The salted caramel flavor is natural and well balanced with the signature Crown Royal whisky base.
