My Handcrafted Opinions on Whiskies, Distilleries and Other Related Stuff

Texas Crown Club

My biggest concern when I saw this recently was not the fact this Canadian whisky was called Texas Crown (which appears to be a rather unsophisticated attempt to appeal to the apparently rather large Texas market for Canadian whisky) but the words "Ultra Premium" on the bottle.  I have commented before how the words "De Luxe" or "Deluxe" on whisky usually send a shiver down my spine, now this expression has raised the bar to "Ultra Premium" and I have to say I was sceptical to put it mildly if for no other reason than the rather low price point.    The nose had the usual suspects of younger whisky, fresh paint and a little fresh cut wood.  The taste had a brief hint of sweet milk chocolate, some vanilla and then the spice kicked in.  That is about it.   With water a little creamier and sweeter.  Definately better with water.  The finish is peppery and quite short.   This expression is "Ultra Premium" in the same way as the beer Michelob Ultra.... I can only assume based on this evidence Ultra is Latin for not very good.
