I think it would be very hard to beat this for the money. I'm not a fan of Crown Royal at all, but just like audio it's all about personal preference, and I find this to be far superior for my tastes anyways.
Well, if you want a single malt, you have a choice of only one, Glen Breton. (By the way, in Canada it's "whisky" without the "e"). I don't believe there are any other single malts made in Canada at the moment, although that may change. There is a big controversy right now with Diageo plc, the large multinational who own and distiribute many brands of spirits. Apparently they are pulling a lot of premium whiskies from stores in order to sell them in China, India and Russia, where they can earn more money. Canada is being rationed fewer bottles. This may encourage entrepreneurs to set up single malt distilleries.
Now on the other hand, if you don't have enough hair on your chest to drink real single malt whisky, there are many nice smooth blended brands, like Black Velvet.
Of course, to a single malt drinker, blended whisky is nothing more than industrial alcohol with food colouring added.
My Mother also drank CC and other blended like Kessler etc.Lots of women loved it,nice and mellow.I personally like Makers Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon made Sour Mash Style.Its the bottle with the top dipped in red wax.Hand made in small batches.Now we are talking!!
Crown Royal Extra Rare. Other whiskey that is not Canadian made and it is much smoother than CR extra rare is the Johnnie Walker King George. Comparing price with CR extra rare, the Green or Gold label is still taste much much better and smoother. Please do not pure these drinks on the rock. People pour on the rock becuase of the cheap bottle $25-$50 taste like cough med. Otherwise you are waisting a perfectly good liquor.
