Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or
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.

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.
Superb delicate dram, and an excellent alternative to sherry-flavors
Delicious with vanilla ice cream
Sweet and delicious
Very nice as a newbie when it comes to Scotch I found this to be quite refreshing with a bit of water. The finish is delightful and I was surprised how sweet it is.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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