If You're a Crown Royal Lover...

   As I've grown older and more refined (no laughing) fine Canadian whiskys have found a place in my liquor cabinet. It is becoming increasingly apparent that Crown Royal is my taste of choice, however, I'm discovering it's not quite that easy. It all started with the "Deluxe", and only Deluxe for years, not knowing there was other exclusive blends. On a recommendation I recently tried "Black" and loved it's traditional smoothness but with a rich dark, full-bodied flavors.

   Once I discovered "Black" it led to digging deeper to what other products might be available from Crown Royal. This has led to "Reserve". Wow, incredibly smooth and just a wonderful blend. Keep in mind as you progress up the line so goes the price, without surprise, but worth every penny in my opinion.

   This leaves one more step up the ladder to "XR" or Extra Reserve which will have to wait for reasons probably obvious!
