    Re: When/How did Crown Royal Become Popular?

    The last time I drank CR was at my buddy's bachelor party. I had the nastiest hangover the next day, and I swore the stuff off. This was around five years ago. My hangover told me it contained ingredients that did not at all belong in my body.

    Funny thats the reason my dad said he started drinking it. He was a JD guy and said about the time he turned 30 it started making him feel terrible the next morning, moved over to the blended stuff and wasn't a problem anymore. Interesting how it affects us all differently.

    My wife likes Macanudos... maybe thats why? Though she usually has hers with an Ardbeg, Bowmore, or Lag.

    Crown seemed to be the only hard liquor that girls would drink regularly (albeit with diet coke). I can't deny buying a bottle or two back when I was first discovering whiskey (and to have something for girls to drink). In fact, I have a bottle still from probably 2004-5 sitting around. Now only my mom drinks it when she visits hah.

    Odd how it progresses from the newest thing to the hottest thing to the greatest thing to eventually something only our parents or grand parents drink.
