Earth Day Whisky (Cromwell's Royal) -- 189 lbs (-40) [21X]



Cromwell's Royal is the first box whisky I've heard of (my wife calls it the "scotch box"). It's perfect for someone trying to maintain an affordable whisky diet and help save the planet. According to the packaging, "Bag in a Box packaging uses 325% less energy to be produced and recycled than glass ... it's also 100% recyclable". Those savings are probably lost considering that it's distilled and aged in Scotland, packaged in France, and then imported to the US, but I still applaud the effort in the hopes that it will inspire other companies to do the same. It tastes good for a bottom-shelf whisky, too-- clean, well-balanced, and a hint of citrus.
