Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - 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.

This sophisticated whisky ages a minimum of ten years in ex-bourbon casks, then it is extra matured in hand-selected Sauternes wine barriques creating a rich, sumptuous and heady spectrum of aromatics and flavors.
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.
