Nose: apples and cinnamon. Apricots and tangerine. Hints of pineapple on syrup. Some kiwi. Quite warm with hints of cake and lemon pie. Honeysuckle. Very sweet.

Mouth: indeed very sweet but it shows more spices from the oak now. Much thicker and richer than the Original. Big hints of marmalade and all kinds of yellow fruits. Honey. Lots of vanilla and white chocolate. Mocha in the aftertaste.

Finish: medium length, creamy and firm enough thanks to the oak. Hints of ginger.

This has quite a reputation among whisky lovers - and deservedly so.

I have to (almost) agree with your summing up of the Nectar D'Or - it is a damn fine whisky (I paraphrase freely). I'd put Sonnalta PX just a notch ahead, but I probably spend my hard-earned on the Nectar D'Or as I think it comes n at better value for money.

Was your rating of 7.5 for this whisky a mistake? surely in the scheme of things it's worth at least an 8.5 - 9?

I'm not as generous as other reviewers when it comes to scores. I've tasted over 600 whiskies so far, and I want to put everything in perspective. 7.5/10 is a very decent score in my view, certainly for a mainstream whisky.

I agree, I'd definitely prefer Sonnalta PX over this one.
