Crown Royal XO Review

I figured I’ll come in and post something here and there about what’s been going on.
Well mountain biking is still taking a break from my life. But smoking cigars and drinking whiskey hasn’t. If anything I wanted to talk to you about one type of whiskey I had the pleasure of trying out.

I was recently enjoying some pozole at Art’s house. His pops came to visit and since this was a special occasion, Art busted out the Crown Royal XO. I’ve had Crown Royal before but never the XO. Well I was pleasantly surprised on how smooth it was. My goodness, this has to be the smoothest whiskey I’ve had to date. No harsh bite, just flavor and that warm feeling of the spirit of the whiskey coming into your body…wait, that sounded really sexual. Eh, who cares. You get the point right?

It’s smooth, it’s yummy and yes it will get you drunk, quick. As it should since it’s 40% (ABV 80 proof.)

The aroma of the XO was very pleasant. You can smell a hint of oak, the first sip allows you to taste notes of vanilla and fruits. Once you kick it to the back of your throat, you’ll then realize how smooth this whiskey is. 15800652_10210736770482993_3908246629634009378_o
