NEW YORK, November 17, 2022 — In its most luxurious form, Crown Royal has released the newest, limited-edition addition to its family – Crown Royal Aged 29 Years Extra Rare Blended Canadian Whisky. This complex and beautiful blend has been patiently aged for no less than 29 years in Crown Royal's award-winning distillery in Gimli, Manitoba.
On the nose, this whisky truly smells like fall. Baking spices, rich subtle notes of orchard fruits, and lovely notes from American oak barrels are rounded out by a subtle touch of vanilla. The spice of Canadian rye grain truly shines through on the palate accompanied by the orchard fruit and toasted oak experienced on the nose. It is rich and robust yet balanced and a bit sweet.
“Crown Royal 29 Year Old showcases our signature rye mash bill and represents the robust history of our Gimli distillery,” said Stephen Wilson, Director of Whisky Engagement for Crown Royal. “Its exceptional flavor profile invites a new generation of whisky connoisseurs and drinkers to experience an elevated level of luxury as they celebrate milestone moments with Crown Royal.”
Only 6,000 bottles of Crown Royal Aged 29 Years are available.
29 Year Old will be a one-time limited offering as part of a “royal series” followed by even more prestigious blends annually, retailing at $399.
