Queen Anne Rare 1970s
Named after Queen Anne of Great Britain and Ireland, who was in power in 1707 when England and Scotland were united as a single sovereign state. This bottle of Queen Anne Blended Scotch Whisky is a collector's item from the 1970s.

My mother-in-law had a bottle of this from the 70's that I inherited when she passed away in early March. It was ullaged and the cork split on opening. Surprisingly the colour was clean and golden. The nose had salt and orange peel with a pleasant alcohol fuminess. The palate, full sharp orange and fruit cake(cinnamon) with one of the most pleasant full strength finishes that I have tasted in a blend for a long time. A drop of iced water fills it even further. Has to be close to the best blend that I have tasted if you can get it, buy it.
