The 2012 Wine Enthusiast found it a bit hot and suggested mixing with water to improve the soft, velvet qualities of the whisky.

Better than any other crown royal that i have ever tried but not good for a whisky. not a ton of character or flavor. decently smooth but outrageously expensive mediocrity cannot be justified.

I was fortunate enough to sample XR at a holiday party over the weekend. While Im not the biggest fan of Canadian Whisky, and certainly not an expert, the XR was so ridiculously smooth it immediately reminded me of Hennessy Reserve and other high end cognacs Ive tasted over the years. Neat this dram is spicy, sweet, and as rich as a good port. Over ice, after a few minutes XR keeps its flavor and slightly chilled is fantastic.
