Proof66 Notes

Cask 16 is the newest addition to the Crown line where the whiskies are finished in Limousin cognac casks. The "16" is emblematic of the stamp on the cognac casks, which is supposed to be a marker of authenticity.

Drink Hacker was complimentary about this bottle giving it an A but having little to specifically say about it.

Even scotch lovers at Inebrio liked the whisky saying, "All in all, this is an excellent premium whisky and Crown Royal gets a fair shake from the cognac finish."

Crown Royal was first produced to in 1939 by Seagram's (then a Canadian company but now defunct with the label owned by Pernod-Ricard) to honor the Canadian tour by British royals King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Crown is probably the mose widely known and certainly one of the more widely available Canadian Whisky on the market. Currently, it's the top-selling Canadian whisky in the United States; the brand itself is owned by the Big Liquor Conglomerate Diageo. The distillery itself is, of course, located in Canada. Some may recall a narrowly averted labor strike in 2007 that would--heaven forfend!--have interrupted whisky production. One time produced in Ontario but moved production to Manitoba in 1992.

What does the 16 stand for? I think it means it's at least $16 too expensive. It's all right stuff, but really, spend the money on two bottles of good bourbon.
