Crown Royal thunders into summer

Crown Royal, the quintessential Canadian whisky, is racing into summer. Whether it is tastings at local liquor stores or sponsorship of regional events like Longmont’s own Thunder at the Peaks Car Show, Crown Royal is ideal for summer whiskey drinkers.

With a sweetness and smoothness that many prefer over the bite of bourbon or the smokiness of peated Scotch, Crown Royal offers a whole line of easy drinking, reliable whiskies.

Try one of these offerings:

Crown Royal Fine Deluxe:

Crown Royal’s flagship is matured to perfection in white oak barrels, carrying a depth of malted smoothness that sets the standard for Canadian blends. Created to celebrate a visit from King George VI & Queen Elizabeth in 1939, Crown Royal is full-bodied, yet delicately smooth and creamy, with hints of oak and vanilla.

Crown Royal XO:

Launched in 2014, Crown Royal’s XO is a blend of approximately 50 whiskies which are married and then aged in cognac casks from the Limousin Forest in France. Rich, sweet, and smooth, this is inarguably the most complex whisky in their line.

Crown Royal Vanilla:

For this flavor variant, specially selected whiskies are infused with the rich flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. The result is a uniquely sophisticated whisky, bursting with the bold flavor of vanilla and the distinctive smoothness of Crown Royal. It also makes a welcome addition to a “grownup” milkshake.

Crown Royal Regal Apple:

To create this flavor, Crown’s master whisky blenders hand-select batches and infuse them with Regal Gala Apples for a delicious Canadian whisky balanced with notes of crisp apple and light notes of caramel and spice. It makes an interesting entry for summer and fall months. Great simply straight or on the rocks, Crown Royal is also a lively ingredient in a whiskey smash or a summer slush.

You can find any of Crown Royal’s quality products, as well as a myriad of other whiskey selections, at large local liquor stores, like Wyatt’s, which offer you a huge selection of spirits, beer, and wine.

Join us this Saturday, June 29 for the Thunder at the Peaks Car Show at the Village at the Peaks mall, sponsored by Wyatt’s and Crown Royal.

This Saturday, we will be tasting the following whiskey selections: 

A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon: This wonderful Colorado whiskey has a floral nose of loam and honeycrisp apple. Distilled twice, with a mash bill of 60% corn, 20% wheat, 10% rye, and 10% malted barley, it was aged for three years in new American white oak barrels to bring out tastes of black tea, pear, and leather with a clean, bittersweet finish and a final ABV of 47.5%.

Farmers Select Four Grain Straight Bourbon: This single barrel bottling of their classic Four Grain Straight Bourbon is crafted grain to bottle using ingredients hand-picked by the Colorado farmers that grow their grains. This whiskey celebrates their care and hard work. Aged at least 2 years in new American white oak. 47.5% ABV.

Armagnac Cask Finished Four Grain Straight Bourbon: This Special Finish Series is produced using the classic Four Grain Straight bourbon matured for a final period in ex-Armagnac French Oak barrels.  47.5% ABV.

Secale Straight Rye Whiskey: Secale Rye is made with 100% Colorado grains (95% rye and 5% barley). Sweet grass with mint, honey, and brine are on the nose, with cooling notes of mint and fennel on the palate, with sea salt, orange tea, and brown sugar. It finishes with a rich and buttery mouthfeel accompanied by tobacco notes. 50% ABV.

Tasting hours for Saturday, June 15th event will be from noon to 4:45 pm., at Wyatt’s Outlaw Saloon, in the back of the store.

All of this week’s featured items will be on sale!

Don’t lay down the Laws, pick it up!

Laws Whiskey House is one of Colorado’s premier distilleries. Located in Denver, they specialize in making full-flavored craft whiskies and experimenting with different types of local grains.

One should try Laws at every opportunity, especially these offerings:

Four Grain Straight Bourbon

Using painstaking care and top-notch ingredients, Laws strives to capture the character and quality of its grains in each sip. Enjoy the harmony of their flagship whiskey and the vanilla and caramel notes from their newly charred American white oak barrels that create a classic bourbon with Colorado character. Bottled at 95 proof.

Farmers Select Four Grain Straight Bourbon

This single barrel bottling of their classic Four Grain Straight Bourbon is crafted grain to bottle using ingredients hand-picked by the Colorado farmers that grow their grains. This whiskey celebrates their care and hard work. Aged at least 2 years in new American white oak. Bottled at 95 proof.

Four Grain Straight Bourbon BOTTLED IN BOND

Bottling in Bond requires that this limited release be a product of a single season, using the grain of a single season, made by one distiller at a single distillery, and aged at least 4 years in a federal government-bonded warehouse. The whiskey is then cut and bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV). These rules are significantly more stringent than the U.S. standards for “Straight Whiskey.”

Secale Straight Rye Whiskey

Secale Rye is made with 100% Colorado grains (95% rye and 5% barley). At 100 proof, this true Colorado rye packs a punch with rich flavors and a layered complexity that refines its characteristic regional terroir.

Locally, you pick up your Laws at larger, superiorly stocked liquor stores, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, that cater to the discriminating whiskey drinker, as well as those just beginning their fine malt journey.

Join us Saturday, June 15th for our Father’s Day Weekend tasting of Laws Whiskey. All tasting items will be on sale!
