So my wife and I had finally got to Helvetica, a whisky bar, after months of attempts. We've been waiting for my sister and brother in law to arrive and in the meantime my wife and I have tried Glenfarclas 12 yr old at dinner, The Yamazaki and Hakushu 12 yr old japanese whiskies. Next on the block is our first ever Glenmorangie!
Glenmorangie Nectar D'or.
I'd heard nothing, but good things about Glenmorangie before, but I'd never tried any so this was going to be a new experience for both myself and my wife.
I take the glass back to my wife and hand it over to her to see what she can see.
Nose: What we both immediately get is fruit. Lots and lots of fruit. Apricot, Peach, Pineapple, Apples, Pears, I swear I smell mango, but my wife says she can't pick that one up, but she gets sultanas which I don't. I immediately think to myself that if this tastes as good as it smells then this too shall be a nice whisky for a hot summers night.
Taste: The fruit continues onto the tongue with apples, lemons, the tang of the pineapple, more and more fruit!! There is some spice, but nothing that I can sit down and put my finger on. But no matter this will make an excellent summer whisky!
The finish is medium with again the fruit dominating everything, mainly sultanas, but there is a hint of oak in the background.
My wife really enjoyed this whisky as did I. Really good thing is my wife up to this point had only really cared for Speysides. Now after this she's interested in trying some more Highlands.
My only complaint with this whisky is that I would have loved to seen it bottled at 50%+ABV. It felt just a little too watered down for my taste.
This is a very good whisky and runs for around $80 AUS.
We're now 45 minutes into our whisky visit and still no sign of my sister or brother in law. We're getting kind of worried so I send them an SMS asking where they are, just as I do this I get an SMS from telling us they're in the upstairs room and look forward to meeting us whenever we get in.
Hahaha, they've been here the entire time! Time to head up and meet the in laws for Family Whisky Time!!
Next on the block: Amrut Fusion!
