Glen Elgin 11 Tasting Notes
Nose: Ripe freshly peeled oranges, touch of tart and lemon. Faint aromas of delicate white wine, stone fruit and white blossom.
Palate: Soft and refined sweetness arrives first which gradually unfolds itself. Watered honey and blossom emerge accompanied by fresh lychees 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.
About Killer Queen
Killer Queen: elegance and grace in a glass. This is a beautifully balanced unpeated 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. Octaves are very small casks about one eighth the size of a normal cask (read more about cask sizes here). Using these smaller casks increases contact between the wood and the spirit. This has seriously enhanced the influence of the Madeira infused oak on this spirit. Glen Elgin whisky is renowned for its 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. Uncharted Whisky's beautiful bottles, befitting a Queen perhaps, are filled and labelled by hand.

What you need to know about taxes
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
