Highland Nectar Whisky Liqueur 35% 5cl
A sweet, spicy and versatile Highland whisky liqueur that is as delightful on its own as it is in a cocktail. Highland Nectar combines the distinctive character of Highland whisky with a characterful array of herbs, spices and fruit, including bitter orange, star anise, nutmeg, vanilla, ginger and cinnamon, to create a silky smooth liqueur.
The palate offers notes of boiled sweets, orange peel, garden herbs, ground allspice, crystallised ginger, star anise and maple syrup, leaving cinnamon, mulled chai cider and clove lingering in the finish.
Nose: Toffee leads, segueing into citrus and spice. The toffee becomes cinder toffee as vanilla builds, backed up by green, leafy herbal notes of tarragon. The toffee notes morph into spiced spongecake batter, stirred through with sultanas and extra brown sugar. Soft heather honey notes hide underneath everything.
Palate: Rich and thick, with an initial burst of spicy anise balanced by creamy vanilla toffee. The spice sits in the middle, a slowly dissolving aniseed ball, with cinder toffee and charred hints joined by bitter lemon rind and sweet candied lemon.
Finish: Baking spice lingers along with soft toffee notes.
