Whiskey Wednesday- Guiding you through the world of fine whiskies for your refinement...and also so you can be a douche when you're out with your friends.

One of the smoothest whiskies I've experienced.  The nose on the XO has many of the traditional Crown Royal aromas including caramel, vanilla and oak, but the oak notes are much deeper and stronger. Some new aromas include dried fruit, iris flower and ginger.

The oak becomes more balanced in the midpalate where it's joined by caramel and the dried fruit from the nose.  Clove, ginger, nutmeg and hints of black pepper round out the oak taste.  Underneath it all is a nice subtle pecan note. The finish is of medium length with light vanilla and subtle spice.
