Tasting Notes

Nose

Ripe freshly peeled oranges, touch of tart and lemon with faint aromas of delicate white wine, stone fruit and white blossom.

Taste

Soft and dainty sweetness arrives first which gradually unfolds itself. Watered honey and blossom emerge accompanied by fresh lychees and a fresh and elegant white wine fades to an orange oil warmth.

Finish

The orange fragrant warmth fades mingling with the rest of the Summer fruit basket for a long, smooth and utterly silken finish.

Killer Queen - elegance and grace in a glass.

This is a beautifully balanced, un-peated single malt whisky from the Speyside gem, Glen Elgin, that has been finished in decadent first-fill ex-Madeira octave casks.

Madeira is a rich, sweet wine similar to Sherry or Port. However, the wine is aged uniquely using oak casks and warm cellars to oxidise the wine. The resulting ex-Madeira infused casks are highly sought after in the whisky industry. The Madeira infused wood adds beautiful, honey-ridden floral flavours to whisky.

By using Octaves- very small casks about one eighth the size of a normal cask - the contact between the wood and the spirit is increased, which seriously enhances the influence of the Madeira infused oak on the spirit. Glen Elgin spirit is renowned for it’s floral nature. Pairing the delicate spirit with this cask maturation is killer.

The beautiful orange hue colouration is natural, the whisky is un-chill filtered and the ABV is cask strength. As always, Uncharted Whisky Co's gorgeous looking bottles - befitting a Queen one could muse - are each filled and labelled by hand in small batches.
