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

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.

Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or - 12 Year Old Reviews

Very nice single malt whisky

One of the sweet whiskies that I tasted. Excellent!

I don't think water is right for this one, tried it both ways and, for me, it is mellower and smoother without. One of the nicest, lushest and satisfying single malts I've had in a long time. Perfect for someone who loves scotch but not the peaty ones.

A pleasant surprise

Very nice. I had it straight the first couple of drinks and found it a tiny bit harsh but not bad. The 3rd drink I added a very small amount of filtered water and BOOM out came the flavors(a bit like Abalor Abunadh does).It's now possibly my favorite. Right up there with the amazing value for money Abalor 12yr but with more complex flavors.

Cut down on the peaty taste.

It’s gotten to peaty for me. I liked the sweet finish.

Very smooth and Moorish, it does has a strong distinctive flavour so it's not for everyone, but Malt whisky lovers of a certain palate will love this Glenmorangie classic

Couldn’t drink it

Maybe I received a bad sample of this or something but I just cannot stand the taste of this stuff. I’ve never had a scotch that I just downright cannot stand the taste of but this is it. I’m glad I just got a sample and not a bottle. Tastes like a extremely dry awful high proof wine. Very bitter and tasted like a very sugary soap. Hands down the worst drink I’ve ever had out of the hundred plus I’ve tried. I like the lasanta but this stuff is just not scotch

Deliciously moreish after-dinner drink with a kick

Really delicious stuff. The MoM tasting notes above are perfect.

The only thing similar that I have personally tried is the Glenfiddich 18 which is far inferior, being too low alcohol, it completely lacks any kick. This Glenmorangie, to my mind, has a perfect balance of sweet and spicy. It's very easy drinking without being bland, really good. If I was just having one after dinner whisky I might prefer Aberlour A'Bunadh, but if I wanted something lighter yet still rich, sweet and fruity, I'd choose this.

There are few whiskies as luxurious it will feel in your mouth for a 12 Year Old than Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or. For those of you who had the chance to visit the distillery back in 2015 and the year after, there was a distillery exclusive Glenmorangie Sauternes Finish 15 Year Old that was a bit superior in terms of Sauternes nuances, quite spectacular and unique, but I’d would say that the batch I’m currently drinking (11/18/2017, in laser small print at the bottom of the bottle) is perfectly balanced, complex and singularly silky, you don’t feel any after burn and the finish is long and full of dessert wines notes. The bottom line is no two batches will be alike and they might be blended using around 40 barrels or less. Whatever, it’s amazing value for your bucks and you likely won’t find a Sauternes cask finish of this quality around at same price point or lower.

I'm guessing, by the quantity of positive reviews, that I must've gotten a bad bottle. Received 2 bottles of Glenmorangie from friends as a birthday gift. Quinta Ruban & Nectar d'or.
Quinta was nice enough but wasn't hugely impressed, the Nectar on the other hand was poor...very poor.
I didn't taste any kind of sweetness whatsoever. It tasted smokey, almost like a strong peated malt. It didn't benefit from a splash of water either.
I've tried the Original 10yr old, the Quinta Ruban, The Lasanta & the Nectar D'or now...for me, the original still reigns supreme.

Great stuff!

This one is a bit of a dark horse, I didn't like my first glass, the wine was very dominant initially, both the nose and taste, I was disappointed.
The next evening however, it was like a different whisky, whereas previously the wine was up front, 24 hours after opening the bottle, the nose was honeysuckle and oak with mixed spices. The taste was more balanced, with a really good finish, initially sweet, but then you get the spices and oak.
This is very smooth without water, although a few drops do open it up a bit more.
This is a whisky that takes a little bit of patience and some time to breathe, but it is well worth it.
