Nose: Quite a funny sweet and creamy nose, vanilla toffees and a touch of linolieum? Poach pears and sweet grassy notes. Actually gets creamier with time - love this nose. Bizarely I get ice cream powder stuff that spacemen eat! The joys of friends who have been to Orlando!
Taste: A little dry and maybe even a touch sour but not unpleasant, actually quite malty and not as creamy as the nose would have suggested. There is a bit of fruitiness but not the full on Glenmorangie pear drops that i expected.
Finish: An orangy sweetness battles with the drying maltiness. The sweetness perhaps wins on points!
Comment: A nice wee dram - but won't be running out to buy a bottle me thinks? However the nose was sublime. If only the dry maltiness wasn't there this would be so much better.
Score: 81/100 Nectar d'Or but not J'adore!
Looking over at Serge's review he seems to like it a lot more than me, and I think it may well be because he also has an appreciation for what Sauternes wine actual is - which may work against me!
