Crown Royal Black

Canadian Whiskey Company Crown Royal – known for its distinctive royal purple velvet bag – recently released a newer, bolder Crown Royal Black. In accordance with the name, the Black variation is described as “Robust, Full-bodied” on the label and is 90 proof (up from the flagship brand’s 80 proof).

While I personally have not dabbled in this new drink – or any other Crown Royal drink for that matter – it has been described to have “…notes of maple and caramel [that] are deeper, and longer…“, and “A creamy profile… and ‘velvety’ … exhibits some subtle dried fruit notes, mainly fig“.

Suggested retail price is $30 for a 750ml bottle. Pick up a bottle to dabble further!
