GLENMORANGIE NECTAR D’OR SAUTERNE CASK 12YR SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY

Producer/Distillery: Glenmorangie
Region: Scotland
Aged: 12yrs
ABV: 46%
Size: 750ml

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. The nose is full of dessert wines, a little fruitiness with a good barley sweetness. The palate is quite full with more dessert wine notes, but with cereal notes and barley, a touch of malty spice and berry fruits with good oaky tannins and little herbal notes. The finish is long with a good oaked note.
