This is the 3rd bottle of the Glenmorangie gift set that I am trying. This is another 10cl bottle which ideal for sampling without having to buy a full bottle. This 12 year old expression is matured in Sauternes casks. It shares the appearance of Sauternes in that it is light and bright the bottle and glass.

I added the tiniest drop of water for this review. The nose gives you Apples, honey and heavy floral notes making you think of a warm summers day.

On the palate its Fruity with sweet honey, hint of spice and an oak finish.

You can taste the dessert wine influence in the Whisky and it is smooth and drinkable. A solid, sweet dram perfect for light hearted summer drinking with friends.

@tjb, if you get a full size bottle of Nectar d'Or you may find, as I have, that it gets much fuller and richer with a good bit of oxidation. I had had some of this at a friend's house and liked it very much, then was somewhat disappointed when I opened my first 750 ml bottle of it. The sweetness and fullness I had remembered just were not there, and it was a little austere rather than rich. After quite a few months of the bottle open, though, what I had remembered, and liked, from my friend's house, was much more in evidence. A lot of bottles are not at their best sampled and reviewed right away. That is one of the downsides of those very convenient small bottles.
