Diageo-owned Canadian whisky brand Crown Royal has unveiled a new whisky with a flavour of Cognac. The ultra-premium offering, Crown Royal Cask No. 16, has been aged in rare Cognac casks.

Made from a blend of more than 50 different and individually aged whiskies, once blended Crown Royal Cask No. 16 completes its ageing in authentic French oak casks from the Limousin forest in France. 

The new whisky comes in a faceted 750ml decanter-style bottle, which is wrapped in a black velvet bag with gold stitching, and packaged in a black and gold gift tube. It will be available from the beginning of October in liquor outlets nationwide with a suggested retail price of US$100.00.

"From its royal beginnings, Crown Royal has created a rich history of providing quality products and unique experiences to our consumers and Cask No. 16 is a massive step in that continuing journey," said vice president Ami-Lynn Bakshi.
