Finally a character from Glenmorangie! Nectar D'Or is rich, fruity and vinous whisky and suits very well for me. Which isn't usually the case.

Glenmorangie has usually made drams too light for my palate. Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or is not a light one. Even though it's easy to drink because of its sweetness.

This is great for dessert but it is much more. Suits for any occasion because it's that good.

Nose: The Sauternes dominates. Sweet and dry with good fresh barley. Earthly notes and green tea. Water brings the sweet wine even more dominant.

Taste: Peppery and dry with grassy notes. Wine with fructose. Water adds power for the peppers.

Finish: Bitter peaches, kinda like a small furry peach peel. Dry and oaky with spices.

Balance: Wine effects hugely in this whisky. Good dram.

What a marvelous whisky this is. Too bad it's so expensive for a 12yo. If it wasn't for the price I would have this in my bar at all times. I agree with your description. I did a review of this last year and I gave it a slightly higher score of 90-- I must admit I am a sucker for the Glenmo's. I found this vid on YouTube by jewmalt it goes in depth on the making of the Nectar D'or and the other two extra-matured 12yo expressions from Glenmo: (m.youtube.com). CHEERS!
