Whisky Reviews for Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 75.40 points

  1. JimJaws scored this whisky 73 points Expert Junior

    The blend was named whiskey of the year by Jim Murray in 2016. Considering what great whiskeys the Scots launched in 2016, I cannot take this decision seriously. Despite the "high distinction", the price did not rise very much.

    Good, but flat whisky. Try it to find out, what should get stamp of Top 2016.

  3. markjedi1 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Don’t get me wrong. A whisky does not have to be complex to be good or ‘best of the world’. This whisky is simply good, no more. Quaffable? Yes. Best of the world? Ah, good ol’ Jim and his funny jokes! Thanks, Robert!
    • Nose
      The nose is soft, sweet and more fruity than I am used to from rye whisky. I get banana, gooseberries and apples. Some vanilla cake. Almonds and eggnog in the back. The spices are surprisingly soft. In all fairness, this is both pleasant and accessible, but far from grand. Very, very easy going.
    • Taste
      It is creamy and candy-sweet on the palate. A perfume note (think lavender) precedes some spices. Unfortunately it turns quite orange-liqueur-like, but with a lot of pepper and nutmeg. Again, far from bad and easy quaffable, but lacks in complexity.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long on more oranges and pepper.
