This is a sauternes finished single malt from the Glenmorangie distillery, a fruity, vinous release from the Highland distillery. It enchants us with its fruitiness and slightly spicy ginger flavor.
Nectar d'Or Glenmorangie is probably a reference to the golden nectar that was previously held in the casks used to finish the whisky. The aroma of lime and orange rind, sultanas and dates give a rich fruity flavour laced with tantalising spices of coconut and nutmeg. Ginger, nutmeg and toasted almonds bring a deep, warming taste interwoven with a syrupy lemon meringue and honeycomb middle. The finish is long and lusciously sweet.
