Thirsty Thursdays - NEW Crown Royal Maple review!!!
Yup, yup! It's been getting a lot of hype lately, so I decided to buy a couple minis to try on my own.
Scent - a beautiful and rich maple syrup scent. It automatically makes you think of having fresh buttermilk pancakes in the morning. I definitely have to say this is some really good stuff!
Notes - after smelling the aroma of this fine product. I poured a bit into a rock glass and did some intensive sipping. At first sip, you can feel the presence of Crown but immediately after you taste maple brown sugar, you can taste almonds, and other nut flavors as you would with breakfast. There is a slight burn and there is the oak flavored whiskey presence in the crown royal. It's definitely sweet onto its own. You do not need a mixer.
Would I sip this in a cocktail? Probably not. Would I use it to make a frappucino or latte, yes? Would I put it in a dessert? HELL YES!
This is one of those types of liquors I see putting into something that has a different purpose other than an alcoholic beverage.
All in all - I have to give this an 8 based on the taste and the fact I would use this in actual cooking. Kudos!
