Canadian Whisky of the Year – Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye

Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye swiped the World Whisky of the Year award in the Whisky Bible 2016. Murray said at the time of the announcement:

The quality of Canadian has been disappointing me for some time with too many non-whisky products, like fruit juice or wine, being added to give a softer flavour. Then Crown Royal Northern Harvest pops up out of nowhere and changes the game. I think other distillers out there have to have a close look at this and see if they can at least have a go at reaching where this new bar has been set. Otherwise the name of Canadian whisky will continue to decline against the high standards being set in other countries.”
