The Adelphi The Winter Queen is the newest bottling of Adelphi and Fusion Whiskey. It is the successor of The Glover, Kincardine and E & K, all combinations of Scotch and Japanese or Indian whiskey. The Winter Queen is a wedding of a bourbon barrel Longmorn, a few liters of Glenrothes sherry cask and two Oloroso sherry hogsheads Millstone (Zuidam). A special marriage between Scottish and Dutch whiskey that produces a true sherry bomb. A limited release of 866 bottles bottled at cask strength of 52.7%, non chill filtered and without the addition of dyes.
The The Winter Queen is a reference to Elizabeth Stuart. Born in Fife in 1596 and the eldest daughter of King James VI of Scotland. She spent most of her life in The Hague and built up large international relations from there.
