Glenmorangie 12 Year Old "Nectar D’Òr" Extra Matured Range Sauternes Cask Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1033611 96 points Wine Enthusiast

 This 12-year-old single malt was finished in casks that previously held Sauternes, the golden sweet wine of Bordeaux. Smooth and elegant, look for a honey hue and notes of vanilla and lemon cream on the palate, finishing with baking spice and a puff of smoke. Adding water unleashes more creamy vanilla and citrus. (KN)  (12/2017)

Whisky Advocate

 Finished (extra-matured, as they are now saying) in Sauternes casks. This expression replaces the Madeira wood finish. Beautiful sweet notes of honeycomb, sultana, apple pie, and white chocolate balanced by peach, coconut, and pineapple. Gentle background spice. The Sauternes cask adds extra weight and viscosity. The sweetness is not cloying, nor does it dominate the flavor profile. A good demonstration of the benefits of wood finishing. (JH, Summer 2008)

Wine Spectator

 Hop aboard the flavor train with this classic. The nose starts with vanilla from the Bourbon wood, but the Sauternes wood used to finish the whisky soon asserts itself with pear, berries and honey. The fruit expands on the palate, with apple and raisin joined by toffee and chocolate. The beautifully balanced finish features fruit, honey, licorice and nuts. Non-chill filtered.  (2/2011)

K&L Notes

The Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or spends 10 years in bourbon casks and then another two years in Sauternes barrels. It smells like citrus, coconut-rolled dates and spice. These notes carry over to the creamy, lemony palate, with hints of toasted almonds, ginger and honey. Finishes with lemon zest, chocolate, ginger and spice.
