Chess: Mate in Two

From a real game played: me vs. computer on a new Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate Media Center setup on the plasma screen in the basement.  

White (me, haha) has Black (the computer) on the ropes and is searching for the jugular.  Black has just moved Q-R7 / Qa2 to block White’s mate threat at Q5/d5.

White to play and mate in two.   It’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure to administer such an elegant mate.   (Click on the board to see a larger picture.)   First correct answer (via comment on this post) gets free! my signed, out-of-print copy of  SCOTCH: The Whisky of Scotland in Fact and Story (7th ed.).
