Crown Royal Whiskey Tips for the Non-Drinker

Those of you that know me, know I’m not a big drinker, in fact I don’t really drink at all. My favorite drink is Mountain Dew on the rocks, what can I say? I have refined tastes. However, this weekend the good folks at Crown Royal flew me out to Indianapolis for the Brickyard 400 and during the weekend I was given a tasting from their Master of Whiskey.

Myself and others were given five different Crown Royal Variants to Sample. Original, Rye, Black, XR and XO. As we went through the samples we savored the aromas and flavors that came out of Crown Royal’s finest. Most were much too powerful for a non- drinker like myself, but that’s not to say there was anything wrong with them. The others around thoroughly loved and raved over all the variants. As the tasting came to the final sample we were then introduced to Crown Royal XO.

The XO was right up my alley, super smooth and taste of caramel oozed from it. Absolutely fantastic for a lightweight like me. For the first time in my life I could drink whiskey, actually enjoy it, and not stick out for being the only person not sipping whiskey. Thank you Crown Royal XO, thank you.

I can not say enough good things about the Crown Royal XO, I really can’t. If you are like me and are not normally a drinker, and you find yourself needing to pick a whiskey to blend in with. Buy some Crown Royal XO, you will impress everyone around you, including yourself.
