    Vanilla, Oak, Old Drapes
    Body
    Medium Bodied.
    Palate
    Vanilla meets old leather with some wood.
    Finish
    Medium finish with a slight burn.

    It's not too bad mixed but just the taste reminds me of old leather. Just not my kind of Blend.

    Nose
    Pepper, vanilla, not very complext
    Body
    Medium body, consistent
    Palate
    Complexity progresses from salt, to vanilla, to butterscotch.
    Finish
    Long tingly finish, lingering with warm spice.

    At its best with a splash of water or on the rocks (best when ice begins to melt).

    Pale caramel
    Nose
    Very mellow wood , floral and candy notes.
    Body
    Light bodied. Gentle on the palate. Slightly sweet.
    Palate
    Nothing especially overwhelming. Just a good, all-purpose blend.
    Finish
    A surprisingly warm, mellow and creamy finish.

    This is by far the smoothest whisky I've ever enjoyed.

    pleasant, spicy with a wood overtone

    middle of the road smooth. Poor compared to CR Special Reserve or especially Cask 16
    Palate
    spice with a wood kick.

    long finish, with some bite. Tingly.

    OK. A very good mixing whiskey. I would share it with friends.

    May be good as a mixer, not easy to enjoy neat.

    Crown Royal is CANADIAN whiskey and the best of the lot. It isn't supposed to taste like bourbon or scotch. It is simple, elegant, and comfortable.

    A very good mixer, but not a good stand alone drink.

    carmel amber
    Nose
    honey, carmel, alcohol, pineapple.
    Body
    light and creamy
    Palate
    sweet syrup, slightly pungent rye taste, malty. Candy-like
    Finish
    warm and sweet, the malty grain gradually melts away leaving the sweetness and warmth

    A solid example of a Canadian whisky. It's worth keeping some around.

    Body
    Light
    Palate
    Not too much there, but like mandarin oranges.
    Finish
    Not bad, lasting taste of a dull fruit.

    Crown is not the best of whiskies but is my favorite Canadian. It is certainly a perfect compliment to a soda (try with root beer!), but not much on its own. To me, it is a good whisky for the price paid. My grandfather's favorite.

    5550/99
    Color
    rich amber
    Nose
    slightly toasted and dried fruity with a hint of solvent
    Body
    watery, less bodied and slightly vaporous
    Palate
    salted honey malt, like brine with honey and solvents
    Finish
    warm finish decaying into a flavour resembling the fragrance of an old carpet in a saloon bar

    clearly a better choice than drinking turps, but not bringing any delicate or unusual flavours or aromas. It is a blend, and seems to be a one size fits all designed to turn coke into an alcoholic beverage.
