Glenmorangie Scotch Single Malt Nectar d'Or

Glenmorangie Scotch Single Malt Nectar d'Or

750ML        
Sku: 027190

The Bordeaux vineyards of south western France lend their grand heritage to Nectar D'or through Glenmorangie's use of Sauternes wine barriques to 'finish' The Original single malt whisky. Infused with the signature honey, citrus and spice aroma of the Sauternes dessert wine that lingers in the wooden casks, the result is a whisky of exquisite sophistication and complexity. The resultant elixir takes on the pale, lemony, gold transparency and honeyed taste that inspired it's name.

Earthy and sweet aromas combine cereal grains, straw, and baking spices. Rich in the mouth there is considerable spice up front with undertones of apricot and butter. The palate turns toward caramel and coffee with lots of cinnamon spice on the finish.

Earthy and sweet aromas combine cereal grains, straw, and baking spices. Rich in the mouth there is considerable spice up front with undertones of apricot and butter. The palate turns toward caramel and coffee with lots of cinnamon spice on the finish.
Smells of smoky, burnt nectarine, apricot and buttery scents that are toasty, nutty and heavenly. Entry is chewy, viscous, concentrated and intensely honeyed; the midpalate is waxy, mildly spicy, jammy, nutty and utterly decadent. Finishes with panache and grace. P.P. (11/15/2008) 96-100

Wine maker notes
Sumptuous and warming, the Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or has spent ten years in American white oak casks before spending its final two years in Sauternes casks from France.

This is a wonderful single malt scotch! I keep searching for the perfect scotch, this is about as good as I have found. The reason I did not give it five stars is because the search is not over!
