Review #678 | /r/WorldWhisky Review #21 – Crown Royal Apple
The Schtick: This comes from a 4-way blind send (Crown Hand Select, Crown Apple, Mystery Mystery – all blind), most of them garbage, and he let me go from there. I took notes and here they are. I did the tasting and got the reveals on the Whiskey Network Discord Server and then wrote up the pertinent details for posting the review. Enjoy!
Distiller: Crown Royal
Bottler: Crown Royal
ABV: 35% ABV
Nose: Green jolly rancher, fake sugar, overwhelmingly fake – green tootsie pop. The nose is highly effervescent – my whole living room now smells like Ranchers.
Taste: Thick, syrupy, rich but artificially sweet. No burn, sugar, fake apple. Disgustingly thick.
Finish: None. Apples. No heat, very short.
Overall: For what it is (an underproofed, heavily dosed and sweetened artificial whiskey based flavored liqueur) it isn’t the worst thing I’ve ever had. I don’t know what this could mix with to be pleasant, though. As a whiskey, this is horrid. It has to be Crown Apple.
Reveal: No surprise, Crown Apple. If I had missed this one, I’d probably have stopped reviewing for good.
Thanks for reading!
