This will be no more than a quick, first impression of sharing a bottle Glenmo's Nectar D'Or with some friends: the most obvious flavour note is the pure blast of sweet from the Sauternes barrel in which this was finished. Relying on memory (because it's all gone now) this is even sweeter than their Sonnalta PX finished in Pedro Ximenes barrels.
I'm hugely impressed by the blenders' playful attitude to whisky making. Nothing seems out of bounds when they're putting together a new expression, whether it's Port, Sauternes, Pedro Ximenes or 'Truffle Oak' - whatever that is.
For the record my friends, Spanish and English, most of them not whisky drinkers, loved the Nectar D'Or and I had to remind them it was 'un préstamo' (a loan) and it was returning home with me.
