Elixir Distillers, Highland Nectar Whisky Liqueur (500ml)
Scotch Whisky Liqueur
Highland Nectar is a beautiful marriage of Scotch whisky from the folks at Elixir Distillers, with infusions of bitter orange, star anise, nutmeg, vanilla, ginger and cinnamon. We took inspiration from the distinctive flavours of Scottish Highland whisky and the region’s array of characterful herbs and spices, to devise a sumptuous liqueur worthy of the moniker ‘nectar’. A joy to imbibe, whether on its own or in a delightful cocktail creation.
Nose: Packed with spiced toffee aromas at first. Caramel mixed with vanilla and all-spice. Ginger and cinnamon stand out, but all the baking spices can be found. A light fragrant touch of floral honey and oak in the background, as well as brown sugar.
Taste: Sweet and coating, there’s a generous amount of brown sugar with vanilla syrup. Star anise, candied orange peels and nutmeg. Just a hint of cardamom. Ginger candy.
Finish: More on spiced pastry (cinnamon rolls, aniseed biscuits) and honey.
