Color: bright sunlight.

Nose: honey, lemons, orange blossoms, and amaretto.

Body: smooth, silky, and creamy.

Palate: Sweet! Cherries dipped in honey. Bavarian cream. Touch of lemon.

Finish: vanilla and white chocolate. Something faintly herbal. Very light, almost effervescent, like it floats back into your mouth after being swallowed.

Wow. Nectar of the gods indeed! I've been wanting to try this one for a long time, and now that I've tasted it, I can't stop drinking. This is delicious, like biting into a pastry. It is the exact opposite of a good Islay malt. Complex and seductive, but tender and feminine. I haven't had the 18 year or any of the other premium Glenmorangie bottlings, but of the headlining four, this one is far and away the most rewarding. Well worth the price if you can afford it.

I am tasting this very nectar (again) right now. A very slight touch of water really changes/softens the flavors. I definitely agree with the touch of lemon and overall decadent sweetness of this bottling. Very good indeed. Thanks for your reviews. I've enjoyed them all thus far. Being new, I often have a hard time relating what I smell and taste to something identifiable and you have helped with that tremendously.
