Crown Royal, a brand of Diageo, 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. 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 brulee.
“Vanilla is so good. It’s classic. It’s timeless. It’s one of the world’s most loved flavors, one of the most sought-after and historically one of the most expensive,” said Jim Ruane, Crown Royal Brand Director. “Infusing our superior Crown Royal whiskies with the flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla allows us to amplify the naturally-occurring vanilla notes found in our whisky and share a delicious new offering with our drinkers.”
