Glenmorangie Nectar D’or is probably a reference to the golden nectar that was previously held in the casks used to finish the whisky. This is a sauternes finished single malt from the Glenmorangie distillery, a fruity, vinous release from the Highland distillery.

Tasting Notes

Nose: The nose is full of dessert wines, a little fruitiness with a good barley sweetness. A mix of honey and apricot skins.

Palate: Quite full with more dessert wine notes, with cereal notes and barley. A touch of malty spice and berry fruits with good oak-y tannins develops.

Finish: Long with a good helping of oak. More apricot skins and dessert wines linger.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Glenmorangie Nectar D’or

Quote 1 “Matured in bourbon barrels for 10 years, then finished for 2 more years in Sauternes barriques. Apparently this expression replaces their Madiera cask release. This bottle has been open for at least a year or so, maybe two.

On the palate we have a little more spice (nutmeg, ginger, cloves) . But it’s balanced by sweet light honey, citrus (more lime and orange than lemon) and various other fruits (pineapple, mango, coconut). Sweet but also malty and spicy (even spicier with water) . The notes work together in perfect harmony.

The finish also shows some spice with the oak coming forward, sharing space with the light honey. This seems much spicier than I remember; Perhaps that’s due to oxidizing for a year or two. But I love it, extremely complex, elegant and easy to drink. Would make a good introductory malt, I think. I’m often hit-and-miss with Glenmorangie. However, this is one of my very favourites. One of Jim Murray’s too, who also scores this a 94.”
