Glenmorangie The Nectar d'Or Sauternes Cask 12 year old
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland|
Nectar D'Or is probably a reference to the golden nectar that was previously held in the casks used to finish the whisky. This is a sauternes finished single malt from the Glenmorangie distillery, a fruity, vinous release from the Highland distillery.
This golden spirit is often flagged by bartenders and sommeliers as a favorite; it's easy to see why. A decade in Bourbon casks, plus an extra two years in Sauternes barriques yields a fresh honeysuckle and vanilla perfume and a super-smooth spirit with creamy honey and nut flavors, with hints of dark chocolate and cinnamon. Very few spirits have such elegance and silky finesse. Good value, too.
