I had a 17 year old bottle of crown royal Rye whiskey. It was covered in dust and hidden away at the back of the top shelf. It was sealed but there was an inch lost off the original volume. It beat damn near everything I ever drank.

My favourite so far was a 50 year old Macallan, though I didn't think to look at what it was worth 'til now. It was really tasty...

How do heresies such as this even happen ?!

A bottle of Crown Royal collecting dust ?

For shame !





But I have to ask.... did that 17 year old bottle of gold go down as smooth as a baby's bottom ?

Crown Royal in our house doesn't even get a chance to get a breath of fresh air before it completely disappears down our thirsty gullets.

Love my whisky, as i'm typing now i've just opened my 30 year old Southern Comfort, got it for my 30th birthday November 5th, i'll tell you something it tastes brilliant :-)

Also like a single malt scotch whisky and jack Daniels.

No mate, 12yo oban. Or 25 yr glen morangie. 18 glendronach is nice as well. The dalmore is lovely in almost all bottlings. Uigedael is quite a treat as well.

Whiskey doesnt age in the bottle.... i use crown royal to clean my glasses .. gibsons is by far a superior rye..

If you want a treat get some corby lot 40. BRilliant canadian rye

May your nethers wither, and your family grow frail.


Crown isnt my favourite. I will happily drink it, i do strongly suggest you try corby how ever. Its quite nice, more oak, more spice. I think you would like it. How ever if more vanilla, biscuits and carmel is your thing give forty creek a try. A little sweeter than i like but definitely a nice rye.

Gibsons is more dry, hints of vanilla, light spice, light oak, very fresh, good hit of cereals. Dry finish, easy to drink.

Get your ass down to ASDA this weekend. They've got a few decent bottles at £25. Jura, Laphroaig (select) and Aberlour.

Not in the class of your deceased Balvenie or Dalwhinnie, but a good dram for the price and sure to sell out for xmas.

Disclaimer - not an expert. Love any peaty malts.

I prefer a sweeter malt so I gravitate towards the Highland Scotches.

I have had older expressions of the Balvenie but I like the 21 best, the port wood aging adds a nice finish. I also have a bottle of Glenfiddich 30 and Macallan 40 that are also very, very good.

There's a country pub that has several thousand pounds worth of top end whiskies. I've enjoyed the Ardbeg up there and we've been going through the rest one by one for months.
