This is a different scotch. Sweet, elegant and rich. All this wrapped around a wonderful lemon filled pastry, dusted with confectioners sugar and spice. Its nutty, with a white wine flavor that is unique from any other whisky. Its base, The Original 10 year old, comes through and intertwines with its added layers from the Sauternes casks. This is probably one of the sweetest scotches I've ever tried. It's thick and oily, thanks to not being chill-filtered. At 46% abv, the high level of alcohol and spice helps balance the sweetness. Add a little water and it becomes a silky-smooth lemon, cream wonder. The Nectar D'or is a Glenmorangie 10 Original on steroids!

I wanted to like this more than I did. Just a bit too sour for my mouth. But again, one I'd like to come back to.

I could not agree more with your review if i'd written it myself. Gorgeous stuff, when in the mood for something sweet.

Thanks for the inspiration, I did indeed come back to it and found it wonderful. It just needed the right amount of water. I also drank it next to the 10yo Original and found that it made the 10yo look clearly inferior.

You are right vanPelt, the amount of water is crucial. The balance in this SM can be easily tipped-off. Cheers!
