Crown Royal has announced the latest release from its high-end Noble Collection:Crown Royal Noble Collection French Oak Cask Finished.
This limited-edition expression showcases Crown Royal Fine De Luxe finished in new French oak barrels.
The French oak originates from the Vosges region in France, known for producing grain that helps impart flavors and aromas of vanilla and baking spices into the whisky, the company says. Once harvested, the oak is open-air seasoned for two years to transform the wood in order to set the stage for the final two-step fire toasting.
The whisky has rich dark notes of caramel, vanilla and fruit, the company says.
Crown Royal Noble Collection French Oak Cask Finished is packaged in a bottle with a crystal-cut style base and a resealable cork top. The canister is a deep purple to match the Crown Royal regal purple, and is encased in the brand’s iconic purple bag with gold accents.
Crown Royal Noble Collection French Oak Cask Finished is 80 proof, and will be available in limited quantities nationwide at the suggested retail price of $59.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.
