    I’m always a fan of unique tasting whisky. It’s my understanding that Sauternes casks are very small and therefore capable of imparting a lot of flavor in a short amount of time. Whatever the reason, this stuff is really good and tastes like nothing else.

    Holy cow, Glenmorangie really hits it out of the park with this one. This is deliciously sweet and warming, turns out to be a really great choice for the holidays! This compares favorably to similar tasting whiskies like Dalwhinnie 15. As a brand and distiller, Glenmorangie makes really solid spirits for very reasonable prices, and I can say this is no exception--worth every penny. It's like a more rich and refined version of the Original. Absolutely recommend the Nectar!

    Smells like "cabane ? sucre"! Pancakes, maple syrup, orange juice... Its amazing. One of the best i ever tasted. For the price, I have to say that ill buy Aberlour 16 yo.

    I absolutly love this whisky. I find the whisky itself to be heavier like a cough syrup but taste nothing like a cough syrup tatse likes. This is sweet the color and the nose superb. It does however have a strong kick on the finish. Overall this is a great dram! Better get some more bottles if you like it. I understand Glenmorangie have stopped production of this whisky already

    well I have to admitt what I previously thought about any Glenmorangie whisky being common and not special because it is so widely drunk by the masses's boy as far as this bottle goes boy is it good I love the color and the aroma and the really sweet taste! It comes out quite thick like a cough syrup but boy does it taste better then cough syrup!! such a pity this whisky was on a very limited run and they have stoped production already. If you like it buy more bottles if you can get it.

    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.
