Glenmorangie The Nectar d'Or 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch 750ml Rated 95WEMore from Glenmorangie
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.
Lime and orange rind, sultanas and dates give a rich fruity flavor 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. Long and lusciously sweet finish with lemon zest, white chocolate, vanilla and traces of ginger and nutmeg. Honeyed gold.
