Crown Royal's Northern Harvest Rye, Fine Blended, Canadian Whisky

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in order to give my honest opinions. Your views and tastes may differ to mine. Please enjoy responsibly.

Here is a look at Crown Royal's Northern Harvest Rye, Fine Blended, Canadian Whisky, which is the first true rye to come from Crown Royal at a big old 90% rye.

With spicy, sweet and fruity aromas popping out on opening, it promises to give a smooth ride to match its delicate caramel color.

The first sip hits gently and evenly with a mix of lemony-orange, zesty fruitiness, a little spice and earthiness. Light enough to enjoy as it rolls over the tongue and mellows at the back of the throat to leave you with a gentle finish.

I was really impressed with the quality of this product and surprised by the smoothness in the taste, which complimented the color and expectation accordingly.

I have sampled some Canadian Whisky in the past so I did have an idea of what to expect, but really was delighted with just how rounded and delicate it was.

Perfect on its own, on the rocks, or with a little crushed ice and lime or lemon, fine with a little cola but in my opinions far better without, just as it comes.

Crown Royal really do seem to have hit a home run with this one as it looks great in the box, better in the bag and then the design of the bottle itself is a catch to the eye. A gift you can be proud of giving and a bottle you will want to explore, you can't do much wrong with a purchase that will set you back about $30 or so, give or take, depending on where you buy it.

I can imagine sitting out by a fire, toasting in the New Year with this bottle and a few good friends who can appreciate a good drop. Warming the insides and taking in the moment. Very well received and very well done for this first from Crown Royal.
