This 12 year old Highland Single Malt Whisky, Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or, is one of the most appealing products of the Glenmorangie Distillery. A non-chill filtered single malt whisky with 46% AVB, it was aged for 12 years, the first 10 in American oak barrels, and the last 2 in barrels formerly used to age Sauternes, thence the honey and lemony character which puts it in a class of its own.
The delicious Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or has a nice amber colour, clean and transparent, with some golden tinges. The nose is enchanting and extremely original, due to the presence of the Sauternes notes, such as citrus rind, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and even grated coconut. The palate of this non-chill filtered whisky is luxurious and inviting, with a lush texture and a fresh lemony note intertwined with specks of caramel, ginger cake, toasted almonds and spices, ending on a citrusy and gingery note.
