It’s almost spring, but it’s bitterly cold in most parts of the country. The weather where you are is most likely frigid, dry, and all-around sucky. But don’t lose hope! It may feel like the dead of winter, but warmer weather is just around the corner—and we know just how we’re going to celebrate:

Crown Royal released a limited-edition peach-flavored whisky and it sounds just like summer in a bottle.

According to its website, it tastes like fuzzy peach skins with light notes of warm spice, oak, and a touch of vanilla

"As a leader in the whisky business, Crown Royal continues to take pride in ensuring we are ahead of the trends and creating high-quality products that help feed whisky drinkers' desire to experiment," says Sophie Kelly, Senior Vice President of Whisk(e)y at Diageo North America. "Crown Royal Peach is the perfect limited-time offering because the taste is undeniably delicious, great for summertime occasions, on the rocks or mixed with iced tea."
