Crown Royal Canadian Whisky
From a newbie's point of view
Also from Crown Royal Branded Whisky
Whisky or Whiskey
Insider knowledge: Crown Royal Canadian Whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Canada. If distilled in America the spelling would be Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Crown Royal Bottling Note
The most famous of all the Canadian whiskies, Crown Royal is made with over 50 different whiskies, and they've been making it for over 70 years. It was first created in 1939 to celebrate the visit of King George VI to Canada.

It is impossible to drink it. Like bad vodka for high price.

So here is a little context. I'm a whisky bartender rocking a little bar in QLD Australia.
When we got this in I was curious to see if this was any good. Spoiler, it was probably the worst drop I have put in my mouth. The bottle is ugly (screw top) and it tastes and feels worse than CC, which is saying something because Canadian Club is only good for drenching in mixers.
TL;DR ---- Better luck next time crown royal.

I don't know much about Canadian whisky, I drank nothing but Canadian Club until I happened upon Crown Royal. I think it's a great whisky in its own right. My first impression was that it was a little dry and the finish was too short. Then next time I tried it, I let it warm a little before nosing and tasting, and I was pleasantly surprised! A full-bodied whisky with vinous fruit and lots of creamy vanilla oak. I think it has a place in any drinks cabinet.

A nasty whiskey, but not as bad as Canadian Club. Don't waste your money.

Quite frankly I like it.
My dad gave me a bottle when he found out I was exploring whisky. It had me at hello; strong and smooth :) (note the smiley face that came with that statement)

P.S. My mother asked me for the bottle when I'm done. She says it can make a good flower vase

Not only was it George VI's 1st visit to Canada, it was the first visit ever by any British monarch and they are the de facto Head of State there.

Well spotted that man! The farcical historical assertion in question has now been corrected although we did all decide it was something of a shame that Crown Royal wasn’t named after George IV as we rather like the cut of his jib… - The Chaps at Master of Malt

Hello lovely whisky people. In your Crown Royal bottling note, you wrote that it was first created in 1939 to celebrate King George the 4th visiting Canada. In 1939 The King was George the 6th. Typo you may like to correct.
The whisky in question is a fine, easy drinking whisky and great for people just starting to discover the taste of whisky!

Wife is a big Foo Fighters fan and after seeing an interview with Dave Grohl as he went on stage breathing booze fumes onto the TV presenter back stage, I bought a bottle of said 'mouth perfume' for my missus. Wasn't expecting much other than 'it's the one Dave Grohl drinks' but it is really smooth and vevelty like you hope a whiskey should be. The blend is perfect and has a really gorgeous aroma. Only problem is only she is allowed to drink it so I might have to get a bottle for myself. Comes in a nice velvety bag - or at least ours did. A1. Getsum.
Crown Royal is distilled in a little town called Gimli, Manitoba, Canada. About 55 Miles north of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
