Named to the Spirit Journal's '140 Best Five Star Spirits in the World for 2011 (#2)': "[$85 list] This thoroughbred was on last year's roster and I've returned it to the Top Three because if I couldn't have HP 18, I'd be perfectly content to sip the night away with this lushly textured, dried fruit, winey blockbuster. Dr. Bill Lumsden, the Glenmorangie genie, has seduced his global audience many times but never has he done so with such stunning elegance and elemental elan. Nectar D'Or rocks, baby. This is Northern Highlands whisky splendor at its silky finest. The pinnacle Glenmorangie. 46% abv. (Jun 2011)"
'Wine-aged whiskies to try,' Decanter: "Possibly the most high-profile wine-infused whisky -- the Sauternes finish adds a dessert wine lusciousness. Could be used as a substitute for Sauternes with blue cheese or, if you eat it, foie gras. Alcohol 46%. (Feb 2013)"
Quarterly Review of Wines: "Bread and pie aromas, and smacks of lemon meringue and orange notes. Luscious caramel, finely textured. Terrific after dinner experience. (Spring 2008)"
