Glenmorangie 12 Year Old Nectar D’Òr Extra Matured Range Sauternes Cask 750ml
Honey gold color. Aromas of lime and orange rind, sultanas and dates give a rich fruity flavor laced with tantalizing spices of coconut and nutmeg. On the palate ginger, nutmeg and toasted almonds bring a deep, warming taste interwoven with a syrupy lemon meringue and honeycomb middle. Long and lusciously sweet finish with lemon zest, white chocolate, vanilla and traces of ginger and nutmeg.

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: 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.
Great to see French casks that actually complement a whisky - so rare! An exercise in outrageously good sweet-dry balancing. It is here, in hand selected wine barriques from Sauternes: the most famous and ancient sweet wine growing region of France, that this whisky develops its rich, spicy and dessert-like flavours.
