Glenmorangie The Nectar d'Or Sauternes Cask
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland|
Aromas of lemon tart emerge alongside fresh vanilla pods, lime and orange zest. Sultanas and dates follow, laced with ginger, coconut and a hint of toasted oak. Silken textures bring sumptuous layers of crème caramel and warming gingerbread. Then nutmeg and toasted almonds entwine with meringue and honeycomb. Finish is sweet and mellow, balancing lemon zest, vanilla cream and final traces of ginger and nutmeg.
This 12-year-old single malt was finished in casks that previously held Sauternes, the golden sweet wine of Bordeaux. Smooth and elegant, look for a honey hue and notes of vanilla and lemon cream on the palate, finishing with baking spice and a puff of smoke. Adding water unleashes more creamy vanilla and citrus.
