Crown Royal Wine Barrel Finished The Noble Collection

As the popularity of Canadian whisky continues its rise, Crown Royal, the Canadian whisky category leader has announced the release of Crown Royal Wine Barrel Finished which is the second release from the Noble Collection, a series of annual, limited edition whiskies.

Following the success of last year's Cornerstone Blend release which was named Whisky Advocate's Canadian Whisky of the Year the new Crown Royal Wine Barrel Finished is sure to pique the curiosity of whisky drinkers.

Crown Royal Wine Barrel Finished has been finished medium toast Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from the celebrated Paso Robles region of California for a full six months. The result, Crown Royal say, is an elegant new whisky that's still unmistakably Crown Royal rich, full-bodied and smooth.

"With Crown Royal Wine Barrel Finished, our distillers and blenders are honored to carry the storied legacy passed down by those who came before, while adding their own unique facet," said Jim Ruane, Director of Crown Royal. "We experimented with a number of different wines and oak provenances but ultimately American oak Cabernet Sauvignon best complemented Crown Royal's signature red fruit notes and velvety mouthfeel for a taste that both whisky and wine connoisseurs will love."

Golden ruby in colour, Crown Royal say the whisky tastes of caramel and butterscotch, with red grapes notes and layers of spice and vanilla imparted by the secondary maturation step. The finish is long, with notes of anise and clove.

Crown Royal Wine Barrel Finished is presented in a velvety purple bag with gold accents and an iridescent purple canister. The bottle pays homage to its royal roots with a smooth, elegant shape, cut crystal base and sturdy wooden top.

Crown Royal Wine Barrel Finished was bottled at 40.5% ABV, a limited release in Canada it has a suggested retail price of Can $59.99 for a 75cl bottle.

You will also find the current Crown Royal core whisky range available from online whisky specialist shops such as Master of Malt
