Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or


I have a simple attitude towards road trips – if there isn’t a starbucks or subway within a mile radius of where you are, you are not supposed to be there. As a driver, I get impatient after an hour on the freeway and start the “are we there yet?” routine. These mean I have to be wary of sunny and warm weekends. My wife usually comes up with one of her atrocious plans to drive 2 hours one way to a small pond or a camping site. The only place we both agree to go is a charming German village with microbreweries an hour or so away.

This week we had a similar plan, but thanks to unexpected flurries and unusual chill outside, we had to drop the plan. Instead, she invited her friends over for dinner and I settled with a bottle of Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or and a DVD of perumaal after they left. This is one of their new labels of the old wood finish bottles. This variant is matured in French casks that used to hold the Sauternes dessert wine. This is supposed to impart a sweet and spice flavor to the whisky.

Notes — Honey and spices to the nose. Honey-sweet with lime and spices, like herb tea. A long warming finish.

    Yeah, yeah. It is like cracking mother-in-law jokes. You mean it, but the other party thinks it is a joke.
