A very good all round blend, one of the components being one of my favorite single malts, Ardmore. If I didn't have quite so many choices at the moment this would be second only to Te Bheag for my favorite blend.
This whisky will forever remind me of my Opa and Father. Everytime I taste Croen Royal mixed with Coke I think of them and Christmas. Sometimes I make a "rye & coke' just for the fond memories of when Opa was still around. They use to give me sips of their drinks when Mom wasn't looking.
I use to use this whisky (cause it's cheap) in my cocktails in college. Never drank it neat though. It also comes with a maple leaf sticker on the back of the bottle (good for using on your college bar fridge!)
