Staff Pick Notes

The vast majority of all the Glenmorangie whiskies start life as the "original" which spends 10 years aging in ex-bourbon barrels. This is a lovely, light, bright whisky full of citrus and coconut elements. Certain amounts of this whiskey go on to be further aged or extra matured in different wood types. The Nectar D'or, my personal favourite, spends an extra 2 years maturing in Sauternes (sweet white wine) casks from southern France. What you get is an amazing whisky full of sweet lemon meringue pie and pineapple sponge cake with a dollop of golden citrus-tinged honey to add to the sweet gourmet nature of this wee dram. Warm nights, a large ball of ice and a bottle of this very fine whisky: "Bob's your uncle", summer is complete. Cheers, Stephen W.
