The Nectar D’or: this is a miniature and I wanted to let it breathe a little before I indulged. I recently read a review from teebone673 about this dram and was excited to try mine so here we go.

On the nose there is strong, young citrus notes, honey coated mangos, fresh air breeze in an orchard, almonds and fruit. The nose is sharp in the introduction, but delivers with multiple layers of fruit and spices. Honey develops into syrup and malty undertones. Slight hints of vanilla oak….Think whisky honey hence the “Nectar.”

The taste is soft with layers…..again honey, citrus and tangerines. A beautiful flavor of sweet white wines slowly developing into a sharp alcoholic spice near the finish. Leaves the tongue tangy? A young whisky; after about 15 seconds a hint of light oak, delicious.

The finish is warm and inviting. Tasting its age with more and more tangy spiced honey, citrus and alcohol lasting medium in length.

Final thought: Enjoyable, sweet dram well suited for after dinner as a dessert. The alcoholic zest of the finish makes me want to try this as an older, more mature expression……still, well put together.

Nice review, man. Seems like we had some similar flavors going on, maybe I noticed more spice. The tangy spiced honey is definitely something I got and really enjoyed. The one thing I noticed was the finish could have been longer and looks like you may have thought the same. Glad you enjoyed it overall. Thanks for the review.

I tried hard to love this one but found it just too sweet for my taste. In that price range I find the Balvenie 12 Signature much more satisfying. Have you guys tried the Quinta Ruban? I've been tempted to pop for it based on good reviews.

@teebone I definitely enjoyed it and am debating on getting a bottle to see what oxidation will do with the flavor over time. Teebone do you still have the HP 18 I'm going to review mine tonight hope you do the same......good reason to have a dram

@BlueNote the Quinta Ruban is really good but you have to let it breath a bit, also if you do get a bottle try adding a few drops of water to the dram to open up the flavor and friend me for the review I would like to know your thoughts. Cheers!
