Crown Royal Noble Collection French Oak Cask Finished
Crown Royal Noble Collection French Oak Cask Finished is the fourth release in Crown Royal’s award-winning Noble Collection. This limited-edition liquid combines the smoothness of the Deluxe with rich dark notes of caramel, vanilla and fruit and with a body and structure that can only be achieved through French Oak. Sip neat or on the rocks and experience the captivating character that only French oak can deliver!
Famed French Oak
The famed French oak used in Noble Collection French Oak Cask Finished is sourced from the renowned Vosges region in France. Known for its meticulously manicured forests and ideal climate, the Vosges region leads to the growth of the tightest grain to help impart subtle flavors and aromas of vanilla and baking spices into the whisky.
The new French oak barrels are seasoned for two years, which sets the stage for the final two-step fire toasting. Crown Royal Fine De Luxe gains rich dark notes of caramel, vanilla and fruit thanks to the French oak. I really picked up all this oak and finish here, and it made a huge difference in the experience.
The Final Details
Crown Royal Noble Collection French Oak Cask Finished is packaged in a really cool looking, ultra deep purple bottle with a crystal-cut style base, a resealable cork top. This is all encased in the brand’s iconic purple bag with gold accents. This makes the whisky the perfect gift to commemorate special occasions and holidays.
