Crown Royal Black Canadian Whisky

The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)
Occasions, tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel.

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf 
It is quite a robust drink at 45% ABV. The appearance is really dark and beautiful. I found the flavor a little bitter and on the artificial side, somewhat medicinal but still better than Ensign Red Canadian Whisky. However, did not meet my expectation to be in the top spot. The packaging is very good and great for a gift. 
Occasion-  When you need a warm, robust drink
SJ's Pro tip- Add a little bit of water or club soda to get rid of the bitterness
Alternates- Whistlepig is a Canda sourced whisky but it's higher price-wise. For a royal feel go with Chival Regal. 
Cocktail- Whisky sour
Feel- Warm
Food Pairing- Unsalted Peanuts(by default its the perfect choice)

The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)
The product label says it all "Crown Royal blended Canadian whisky was first created as a gift for the king and queen of England, to honor them during their visit to Canada in 1939. To this day, every bottle of Crown Royal whisky is crafted to meet that same uncompromising standard"
