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.

Comments

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.

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.

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.

Comments

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

Iets van gemaaid gras, sinaasappelschillen met sherrytonen. Een mooie zoete fruitige lucht. Ik vind het zijn geld waard.  

Taste

Rood fruit, een heerlijke sherry explosie, iets van kersen of karamel-achtigs. Iig iets zoets naast de sherry. Naar mate ik meer slokken neem, lijkt er iets van chocolade naar boven te komen.

Finish

Rood fruit en/of kersen, sinaasappelen en een lang aanhoudende sherrytoon.  

Comments

Ik vind deze dram erg in balans en complex. Vol en rond.
