Whisky Reviews for The Winter Queen 09-year-old AD

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.80 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    This is a very unique whisky, of which I'm not sure everyone will appreciate it as much as I do. I guess you'll have to find out for yourself. I think this is expertly blended, high-end liquid.
    • Nose
      Interesting notes of rye bread and a damp dunnage warehouse, as well as cocoa powder, cappuccino, apricots and marasquin cherries. The spices work really well with the sweeter layers of this dram.
    • Taste
      The interplay between the spices and the sweeter flavours here work really well, again. This is surprisingly reminiscent of the Zuidam 100 Rye whisky. Not as rye-esque of course, but certainly shows similarities. Lots of spices. Think nutmeg, cloves and black pepper. There's dark notes of chocolate too, accompanied by cherries and apricot jam.
    • Finish
      All of the above. Long.

  2. drummer & timmer did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A blend of single malt from Glenrothes and Longmorn distilleries in Speyside and a single malt from Zuidam Distillery in the Netherlands, this whisky is named for Elizabeth Stuart, the daughter of King James VI of Scotland and Queen Anne of Denmark. She was queen of Bohemia for a brief period before spending most of her life in exile in The Hague.

    Whisky Advocate says:

    Fusion Whisky blends single malt scotch with single malt whiskies from around the world. Its first release, The Glover, combined Longmorn and Glen Garioch with Hanyu single malt from Japan, while its second release, The E&K, was a blend of Ardmore and Glenrothes and single malt from Amrut Distillery in India. Alex Bruce, managing director and master blender for independent bottler Adelphi, blends Fusion Whisky’s different offerings. Unfortunately, these whiskies are not for sale in the U.S.

  7. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A coming-together of three good casks. The nose comes slightly one-sided with the sherry cask doing much of the talking. The palate, on the other side, shows more of its complexity.

  8. Gerhans scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Very nice dram. First off, this whisky has one of the most sexy colours I've seen in recent times.

    On the nose, cocoa, dark fruit, sherry and some toffee/fudge.

    Tastewise, you get the above with added apricots, plums and a faint vanilla taste.

    The aftertaste is an amazingly satisfying mix of sweet and bitter with a caramel covered fruitlike quality. 

    88/100

  9. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Big dram, this Winter Queen, which will most likely be very popular in Holland because of the Millstone in the mix – which is the most prominent here anyway. Thank you for the sample, Anthony.
    • Nose
      The nose starts rather dry, but slowly becomes sweeter. First some cold coffee and freshly polished leather, then some cocoa with coconut, pipe tobacco and some triplex planks. Loads of nutmeg. It evolves toward fruit tea and waffles with maple syrup. The Millstone is clearly dominant. Quite a nice nose.
    • Taste
      It goes the extra mile on the palate: piquant on nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and black pepper and very dark and sweet on demerara sugar, stewed rhubarb, cherries and caramel. It even sports an umami side as if from roast beef drenched in gravy. Goes from dry to creamy and back again. The wood is fairly loud and offers quite the bitter note towards the end, without becoming disturbing.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly long and sufficiently creamy to prevent me from reaching for a glass of water. It starts quite sweet on a dark marmalade – with a surge of rum raisins! – but ends on the woodspices.

  10. M134481 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I find this dram very balanced and complex. Full and round.
    • Nose
      Something of mown grass, orange peel with sherry notes. A nice sweet fruity air. I think it's worth the money.
    • Taste
      Red fruit, a delicious sherry explosion, something from cherry or caramel-like. Iig something sweet next to the sherry. As I take more gulps, something like chocolate seems to come up.
    • Finish
      Red fruit and / or cherries, oranges and a long lasting sherry tone.
