Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes from (Kevin Erskine)

    Nose: The winey notes on the nose are unmistakable, with a good dollop of oak (maybe a little too much?) - but all in all the entire nose is very subtle, very clean and very pleasant.

    Taste: Oh yeah, that characteristic Canadian rye bite is there, but much more subtle than your standard Canadian. The cognac has done a good job of taming the rye.

    First you get hit with a fruit-sugar sweetness - followed by the bite. Complexity? Medium, but often complexity is lost in favor of smoothness. And Cask No. 16 is very smooth. Most of the complexity is contained in the finish.

    Finish: The rye comes back in a long finish with which turns slightly bitter at the very end. Late finish is very much like cognac or a dry white. Wait a second. What's that? Irish Soda bread!?! Yeah that's it. I get the dryness and sweetness (and occasional raisin) one gets in a bite of Irish Soda Bread. Damn it, I love Irish Soda Bread!

    All in all, this is an excellent premium whisky and Crown Royal gets a fair shake from the cognac finish.

    Cask No. 16 is the best blend the CR has produced in years. For the life of me I don't know why it was discontinued. Ever since it's introduction it became my drink of choice. Everyone that I introduced it to agreed that it was on of the smoothest tasting whiskies they ever tasted. I have only two bottles left and would really like to be able to purchase more.

    My favorite. On the rocks with a lime wedge squeezed. Let it mellow for about 5 mins. HEAVENLY!
