Glenmorangie Nectar O’d has flavors of ginger, nutmeg and toasted almonds, that bring a deep, warming taste interwoven with a syrupy lemon meringue and honeycomb middle. The finish is long and lusciously sweet with lemon zest, white chocolate, vanilla and traces of ginger and nutmeg.

They are Laurence Brabant and Wouter Scheublin, and they have come together to create a wooden coffret that glides open to reveal a sensual crystal vessel
