Highland Queen Blended Scotch Whisky 30 year old
A limited edition expression from the Highland Queen range, produced in celebration of the brand's 120th anniversary. This blend is made using malt and grain whiskies (with a high percentage of malt) all over 30 years old, which were blended and then allowed to marry for 6 months in Sherry butts. The "1561" in the name is a reference to Mary Queen of Scots, whom the brand is named after.
