Killer Queen- elegance and grace in a glass. This is a beautifully balanced un-peated single malt whisky from Glen Elgin. The 11 year maturation 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- we increase contact between the wood and the spirit 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.

TASTING NOTES

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