    At this mid price point this is really exceptional. Rich and complex with clear notes of ginger, an almost anise bitter spice, and that unique Sauternes note at both the start and the finish. If you like eclectic don't miss it.

    I'm not proud of finishing the bottle in two days, but that's something that glenmorangie should be proud of. Don't get me wrong, it's not a fast dram. It's delightful in every way

    Not normally a single malt fan (I prefer blends), but my son brought me a bottle of this 'goodness' and I was surprised by how much I liked it. It's definitely smooth, and has many different tastes as you let it sit in your mouth before swallowing. Yup, good stuff.

    Had a tebsency towards the Glen 10 year old which has always been a favorite. Nose is lite and sweet..first hot is Dpicy Honey with Orange and Vanilla tones.. Short finish but very clean finish... Absolutely worth keeping a bottle available at all.time as its lighter than the Other Casks..which I do Immensly Enjoy Ive yet to be dissapointed. Miss the Blue Bottle 12 years Maple early 2004?? Cant find it anywhere..Enjoy????????????

    Vanilla custard dominates, caramel sweetness, lemon meringue, white cake, roasted walnuts, very rich, decadent. The more I sit with it, the better it becomes, and more layers emerge. The vanilla custard is beautiful and that initial sweetness when it hits your tongue is pure Glenmorangie magnificence.

    Disappointing. Not as good as Glenmorangie other options. Nose: Nothing much. Light sweet. Orange, Citris, Honey. Palate: Alot of citrus, oily Finish: Nothing much. Short finish. Some lemon & sweet. Conclusion: Not that complex. Very light. Good for beginners. Very forgettable.

    "Nose" (undiluted) Honey, peaches, lightly peated, navel oranges and a little scent of dulse. "Palate" (undiluted) Creamy, honeyed, pancakes and maple syrup, crushed pistachio, phyllo dough, baklava. "Finish" (undiluted) Drying, salted white chocolate, tangerine, malty notes, brazil nuts and somehow lemony with tart citrus, herbal flavors. You are left with a delightful effervescence too.

    Hands down, my favorite whisky. If you''re a fan of highland single malts, or any whisky that has a rich, sweet, citrus fruit flavor then this is the whisky for you. Well worth the price tag and then some.

    Just delicious. No qualifications. The best single malt I have ever tasted and I''ve tasted them all.

    I didn't think much of this to start with - a little sweet for my taste. It has since grown on me and might invest in another bottle

    I have drank all these Glenmorangie scotch boys. Let me tell you that the 12 year Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or is by far the best smoothest taste you will ever experience for the price. I like it as well as the 18 year. I am presently drinking the 10 year because I am retitred but will be getting the Nectar D'Or in 2 days. Really why do I drink the original when the 12 is superb.

    An awesome malt very mellow and citrussy.One definitely to be savoured cold and slow, not enough of a dram-snob to come out with all the usual accompanying pretentiousness,but suffice it to say,if you haven't tasted it,you should,if you have,I need say no more. The finish is subtly christmassy and it nudges your taste buds into wanting to savour the next sip again and again,SUPERB DRAM,congratulations to the sixteen men of Tain (I'm from Nairn originally) STAND PROUD
