Excerpt: The initial fireworks complete, figgy dark fruit and nutty milk chocolate swirl capriciously over fragrant spring flowers, soft vanilla, and delicate herbal maple syrup. Dramatic and delightful.

This comes from a 4-way blind send courtesy of /u/playingwithfire. He said he's sent me 4 samples (Crown Hand Select, Crown Apple, Mystery, Mystery Rum - all blind), most of them garbage, and 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!
Sweet maple, honey, vanilla, mocha. Overall, sweet but muted.
Light mouthfeel, no heat. Faint sugar. Not as sweet as the Apple. Definitely sweet though. Salted caramel, cocoa, mocha. Really strange.
Short, lots of cocoa, maple, salted caramel, toffee and vanilla. Sweet finish.
I don't really know what this is. I think it could be Crown Salted Caramel, but this isn't as cloying or sweet as the Apple, so that leads me to think not. Guessing its a whiskey with some added sweetness.
