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.
