The PR literature gives the impression that this could be the perfect follow up to Cask 16... It's not!! It has a good nose, and starts off smooth, but the finish is astringent and burns. I've been told by some of my lady friends that it mixes well, but this is not a good CR for drinking neat

Crown Royal XO 750ML, Canada
This is no ordinary reserve quality whisky.
Crafted by the Crown Royal Master Blender, XO furthers the Crown Royal® signature blend from 50 of our finest whiskies, and then finishes them in cognac casks. Resulting in both an extraordinary complex and smooth expression, Crown Royal® XO is an elegant whisky that is deliciously balanced with hints of vanilla, spice and rich dry fruit.
This extraordinary blend is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks
As a longtime Crown Royal drinker I thought Crown hit he mark with "Cask 16" when that was available. They have surpassed that with Crown XO. Get it while you can and here's hoping XO is around a little longer.
