Whisky or Whiskey

What's in a name? Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or - 12 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or - 12 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.

Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or Bottling Note

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 Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is full of dessert wines, a little fruitiness with a good barley sweetness. The palate is quite full with more dessert wine notes, but with cereal notes and barley, a touch of malty spice and berry fruits with good oaky tannins and little herbal notes. The finish is long with a good oaked note and more noble rot.

User Reviews of the Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or - 12 Year Old

Sweet and delicious

A lovely, sweet, almost dessert-ish whisky, with honey and white chocolate notes.

5th June 2014

Delicious with vanilla ice cream

I know this is utter heresy, but this stuff is just wonderful poured over a good vanilla ice cream. Also wonderful neat or with just a few drops of water

5th May 2014

Superb delicate dram, and an excellent alternative to sherry-flavors

Nose: Desert wine, sherry-like, honey (some fruity notes). Palate: Toffee, desert wine. Finish: Long, wine-ish (a touch of barley). Score: 94/10

Very nice dram to enjoy in the evening!

After sampling the "Original" and not be satisfied, I decided to try Nector D'or and was very pleased. I draw it up in about 3 oz and add a few ice shavings. About 10 minutes later, I have a great sipping whisky to enjoy. My usual taste is Glenfiddich 15 or 21. I also like Glenlivet 12. I will keep this one on hand, the "Original" not so much.

perfect

This truelly has the perfect name, Nectar d'or, truelly nectar of the gods.

3rd March 2014

By far the favourite

Very nice, and one of the few scotch where I would drink without an ice cube. Literally tastes like Christmas.

4th February 2014

Moving on...

A nice dram without a doubt. However, the expression runs flat and is spicier than a wine finish should be, especially considering its a sauterne. Stick with a Speyside for a few extra quid.

29th January 2014

The best

I've never been much of a scotch drinker until I found this. It is smooth and delicious.

5th December 2013

Beautiful

fantastic, first taste was a surprise , after a couple of large glasses in front of the woodburner, the complex flavour is intense and addictive. Now having sampled a couple of bottles a wonderful malt.

2nd December 2013

Not worth the price

That being, this is more expensive than Lasanta, but being more bland than lasanta. Price aside, not as sweet as what some comments make it out to be. It's a pretty decent dram, but not as complex as one would like. On the nose, malty, slightly sweet, wine. Palate, sweet, has a tannin taste. Decent, but doesn't justify the higher price

28th November 2013

A bit sweet

Its a bit too sweet and has a little balancing issue. I am glad to have had her but I will be moving on after the bottle is finished. I dont regret my experience but this game is a learning process and I am glad to have taken this class. Stepping stones my friends

Nectar D'or 15

I’ve seen some people criticise Nectar d’or for being too much like Glenmorangie Original, the flavour profile is indeed very similar which is fine with me because I love the Original. Nectar d’or though has a wonderful sweetness from the Sauterne seasoned French oak cask and an intense buttery creaminess along with fresh fruit, nuts and delicate spice. It’s basically a deeper, more intense, more rounded and richer version of the Original, exactly what you would expect from an older expression. You would have to be a real insufferable malt snob to not like this.

6th November 2013

Good stuff.

Yeah, I bought this and was impressed. Its not a £45 bottle of whiskey though. Again - better off investigating some Japanese whiskeys when you get to this price. I picked this up in Sainsburys one day for £25. I had to try it at that price. I'd repeat my purchase at £30 but not worth splashing out extra for. The Lasanta is a cheaper alternative I'd say.

Stunning

Glenmorangie Nectar changed my mind about wiskhy. Until now is the most floral and perfumed malt that I ever tried. Sweet but balanced. Smells and taste like a really nectar. Stunning!

@12 Years Old?

Hi there! There is indeed a 15-year old bottling of this Glenmorangie whisky. There are two versions, essentially, hence the confusion. -- The Chaps at Master of Malt

10th June 2013

pretty good

if you like Original, this is the next step for you

8th June 2013

12 Years Old?

I just picked up a bottle of this for the bargain price of £25 (70cl), but my bottle is aged 15 years...?

6th June 2013

Really smooth whisky

Not much of a whisky drinker ill be honest in the past ive tried several different kinds but this was by far very smooth and good tasting for sure. Im not going to pretend i know about certain whisky but this for me was the best ive tried.

24th April 2013

Simply Delicious

Nectar has a noticeably sweeter profile than the other Glenmorangie products. It has a silky, creamy feel and you'll immediately pick up vanilla and honey flavors with a spicy finish. It makes a perfect nightcap or after-dinner drink.

19th April 2013

Pleasant but not quite golden flavored

I'm totally a fan of wine finishes, yet I find this one a bit unsatisfying. It tastes a bit hotter than its stated proof and the wine aspects don't quite deliver the finesse I expected. I believe that another few years in the cask would do this some good.

8th February 2013

Nectar D'or is appropriately named

Nectar, for sure. One of my favorites, even a non-Scotch drinker might like this. Smooth, a mouthful of creamy flavor, aged in American oak and finished in French sauternes wine casks giving it that unique taste. I hope they keep making this indefinitely.

6th February 2013

Not among my favourites

First off, this is just too expensive for what it is - other than the reasonably priced 10, Glenmorangie are ripping us off here. More to the point, I thought this was the weakest of the Glenmorangie wood finishes - too sweet and not as rich as the Quinta Ruban or Lasanta.

22nd June 2012

Very smooth on the palate

A delight on the tongue and aromas that soothe the nose.

7th December 2011

i'm getting hints of truffles, peanut butter, and cumberland sausages......and......a hint of Tahitian vanilla

one of the best yoghurts i've had for ages.

7th November 2011

Fantastic, smooth, and mellow

One of the best flavors I've had in a long time. Smooth, with a fruity aftertaste. I don't think you will find a better whisky for the price.

9th July 2011

Great Whisky

Delicious, thick and creamy, some nuttiness and intense honey sweetness. Very very nice.
