In 1939, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth made history when they became the first reigning monarchs to journey across North America, traveling the distance by train. Prior to their arrival, a local entrepreneur set out to craft a whisky that the King and Queen could enjoy in the privacy of their rail car. After sampling over 600 different blends of whisky, and scouring through hundreds of different types of glass, labels and bottles, the entrepreneur created what he believed to be the perfect whisky and called it Crown Royal.

Crown Royal XR Whisky was handcrafted by Crown Royal's Master Blender Andrew MacKay. The blend includes the last stocks of whiskies distilled at the famous LaSalle Distillery, which was shuttered in 1993. The distillery was known for producing whiskies with a unique richness that was attributed to the water that surrounded it. "LaSalle holds a historic place in the whiskey world and is incredibly special to me," says MacKay, "because it's where I first learned about creating memorable blends."

"The whiskies are obviously from pre-1993," adds MacKay about Crown Royal XR, "but when we're putting these blends together, the idea is not to hit an age profile. It's designed to be a smooth, gentle whisky in your mouth. That creamy character of Crown Royal is there."

Crown Royal XR has an aroma of dried fruits, caramel, honey combs and creamy vanilla. The aroma gives way to notes of cocoa, figs, raisins, prunes and brown sugar that are complemented by a subtle, spicy undertone. The finish is creamy and rich, with hints of milk chocolate, coffee and cloves.

The whisky earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and earned a perfect 96-100 point score from Wine Enthusiast. Pick up a bottle today!
