Nose: Tropical fruit aromas such as mango and papaya are existent. It becomes richer by lime, citrus, fig, date and sultanas. A very rich and complex aroma is observed in this whisky.
Palate: Nectar D’Or has a Thick and creamy texture. Contains nutmeg, almonds, lemon and grainy taste.
Finish: Long and sweet. White chocolate, vanilla creates and excellent finish.

The most special whisky of Glenmorangie’s “Extra Matured” series according to me. It completes a 12 year maturation period in ex-bourbon casks and then it is finished in famous French Sauternes casks on wine residue.

Beside having a white wine palate experience, it also possesses a rich aroma character. I always recall the term “Liquid Gold” when I observe the bottle.

It is a really great whisky to drink in summer months, however I never thought not drinking it through the year.


Gotta share this scotch !!
