CROWN ROYAL VANILLA “AND IT’S SO GOOD!” | Event recap)

Crown Royal is adding a delicious new whisky to its family with the introduction of Crown Royal Vanilla Flavored Whisky, a blend of hand-selected Crown Royal whiskies infused with the rich flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla.

I had the pleasure to be invited to their first tasting event in Miami.

The result is a unique whisky bursting with vanilla flavor and Crown Royal’s superior smoothness. A versatile drink for all seasons, Crown Royal Vanilla tastes great when mixed with sodas (for a Vanilla take on hard sodas), used to create a Vanilla twist on classic cocktails (like a Vanilla Old Fashioned and Vanilla Hot Toddy) or simply sipped on the rocks.

Crown Royal Vanilla begins with aromas of rich vanilla bean and delicate hints of oak. The taste opens with a delicious, not-too-sweet vanilla flavor followed by Crown Royal’s signature smooth finish. The mouthfeel is pleasant and warm, with an aftertaste reminiscent of crème brulée.
