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 malty

    My Dad was given a bottle of this as part of his retirement present, he's not a big whisky fan and tends to put it in coffee so I got to drink most of it after it had been in the cupboard for a couple of years (I think this bottle would be from 2013?). It's very nice, if you've had the original Glenmorangie, you will instantly recognise the similarities but this has a certain sweet fruitiness about it: peaches? strawberries? The extra couple of years have clearly done it some favours in terms of promoting oak, honey and vanilla notes too. If you are a peat-head this is not for you. If you are into sherry monsters this will make a refreshing change of pace. 88/100

    Amazingly smooth

    Sampling for the first time... Made me a believer. I'm ready to go to Scotland to see the creation of this wonderful rich nectar! Think I'll go pour a nightcap!

    12th May 2015

    Tastes like a cheap whisky

    This just doesn't do it for me. It has the aroma of a cheap $25 bottle of whisky and the taste doesn't improve that first impression.

    13th April 2015

    Tough to drink

    I really didn't like this. White wine was very prominent. You could call it desert wine as with the origional you do get honey notes.

    Bourbon to Scotch!

    I am a true bourbon drinker. E.H. Taylor Barrel Proof, Elmer T Lee, and Blantons are some of my favorites and regular drams after a long day's work...and did I say neat is how I have them. I have tried many scotches and have only slightly liked a few until Glenmorangie Nectar d'or. I love this single malt scotch and will put it side by side with any of the before mentioned bourbons. The nose of this scotch is Cracker Barrel Pancakes and warm syrup. The palate is sweet nectar cream of the crop...if I was a Honey Bee and this was the nectar from a particular flower, I would surely build my hive hear. The finish is not very long but as the sweet nectar dissipates, I very slight peatyness arrives before you will automatically receive more...if you are a bourbon drinker, do yourself a favor and find Glenmorangie Nectar d'or...I LOVE IT...

    I bought a sample pack of 4 Glenmorangies and this was heads and shoulders above the rest. This has an extremely smooth taste with a great flavor. This is one of the none Islay/Island Scotch that I have been impressed with.

    Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or 12 | A Perfect Dessert or Summer Sipping Scotch

    The Nose: warm citrus with light toffee notes, and mild alcohol burn when inhaled deeply. Easy to continually enjoy wafting.

    The Palate: It hits the mouth very light, then slowly warms the outside edges of the tongue with a citrus and mint oil feel. A hint of toffee upon repeated sipping.

    The Finish: almost no throat burn at all, no trail going down, but a delicious mildly sweet and warm lingering on the tongue.

    Overall: An easy to drink, warm, mildly sweet Scotch with hints of orange and mint. Nothing profoundly layered or complex, but enough diversity of flavor in the mouth to make it interesting. A great sipping Scotch for the summer. At $75 a bottle, worth having on the shelf.

    Sweetest Whiskey I've tasted...

    It's as though someone took a Macallan 12 and washed it on the devil's feet...simply astounding...

    26th December 2014

    A dessert - light, sweet and delicate with more of a wine finish - 2 reviews read both

    This is great after dinner with a sweet snack and no more than a medium bodied cigar, great for guests that normally don't drink single malt. Key note: after pouring let it sit for a few minutes, like you would a wine. Tastes of honey with such a light smoke you almost miss it. Very light, clean flavor and finishes like a good wine. Doesn't hang on the palate at all. 8 STARS AS A DESSERT SCOTCH.
    - IF you are a frequent single malt and cigar person, it doesn't work. A good full bodied cigar overpowers the light, delicate flavor. 1 star. Overall: 6 stars.

    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.

    19th November 2014

    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.

    15th April 2014


    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


    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.

    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!

    19th July 2013

    @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.
