  • 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.

  • Intro:

    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!

  • Nose:

    Sweet maple, honey, vanilla, mocha. Overall, sweet but muted.

  • Taste:

    Light mouthfeel, no heat. Faint sugar. Not as sweet as the Apple. Definitely sweet though. Salted caramel, cocoa, mocha. Really strange.

  • Finish:

    Short, lots of cocoa, maple, salted caramel, toffee and vanilla. Sweet finish.

  • Overall:

    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.
