    Adelphi The Winter Queen II 19 Year Old Fusion Cask Strength Whisky (700ml)

    $499. 00 Bottle
    $5988.00 Dozen
    ABV: 54.5%
    A Scotch-Dutch fusion collector's edition.

    A very ambitious blending exercise, considerably older than the first edition Winter Queen, the composition here takes a different trajectory: part of a refill ex-sherry butt from Mortlach, part of a refill ex-sherry butt from Bowmore, part of an ex-sherry butt from an undisclosed Highland distillery, part of two refill ex-bourbon hogsheads distilled at Teaninich combined with a Dutch component - part of a first fill ex-PX sherry hogshead distilled at Zuidam Distillery, Baarle-Nassau, in the Netherlands. The latter is the youngest whisky in the Fusion. All of the Scotch single malts are more than thirty years of age. Limited to 400 bottles world wide. Extremely limited allocation.

    Notes from Adelphi... Colour: mahogany in colour, with amber lights. Nose: slightly nose drying, with blueberry compote, saddle soap and a dusting of coffee powder. Maritime notes also start to become apparent (moss and driftwood). Palate: to taste, Parma Violets with highland toffee and touch of smoke creeping through. Finish: a long finish with hints of dark chocolate and freshly ground coffee in abundance. 54.5% Alc./Vol.
