In the 1730s, a brewery was built in the Scottish Highlands, namely on the Morangie Farm, and a hundred years later, it was refurbished into a distillery we all know and love: Glenmorangie. Their Spirits are not created equal - they are raised as aristocrats. The water comes from the pristine spring of Tarlogie and the magic that happens is a result of a teamwork of sixteen men, affectionately known as the Sixteen Men of Tain. These knights of Whisky distill the potion in the tallest stills in Scotland, creating a lighter and more refined Whisky.
This very bottle is the epitome of class and quality. It's aged for at least a decade in ex-Bourbon barrels and after that, it's double-barreled for extra two years in upscale casks that used to hold sweet French wine Sauternes, which makes it as ritzy as F. Scott Fitzgerald's diamond. The voluptuous "Nectar of Gold" is creamy and sweet and it earned a score of 95/100 from Wine Enthusiast, and 94 points from the legendary Jim Murray's Whisky Bible. Oh, and the gold medal at IWSC in 2017. It's decadently splendid and every home bar should have it.
A personal favorite. An ultra smooth blend of grain and honey flavors. Easy to drink and enjoy. Not overly complex, but no rough edges whatsoever.
Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or aged in ex-Sauternes Cask, supposedly as a desertish wine. I picked this up at Totalwine. Supposedly this dram would take on the notes of Sauternes wine with apricot, peach and honey. On the nose I got fruity and honey (guess my nose is not that well trained). On the pallet, I got spices like cinnamon and vanilla with slight of the tannins from wine. The linger isn't strong or overpowering, everything works well together. At the price I paid for is a bit pricy for this dram, but still very much quality whiskey.
sweet, a little late spice, similar to a smooth bourbon.
Honey and vanilla on the nose. Palate is sweet vanilla and honey. On the finish got some spice and oak with some water. Pretty standard
Very nice. Glenmorangie was the first Scotch I ever tasted, so I have some nostalgic fondness for the brand. This edition, finished in Sauternes casks, is mellow and somewhat richer than I expect from a Highland whisky, but without being sweet or cloying.
Muskatnuss, fruchtig süß, mit citrusschalen, würzig
Nectar D'Or is likely my favorite scotch I have had the opportunity to enjoy. I'm not a fan of peaty scotches so I love that the caramel and fruit notes take over. A very light splash of water gives it an ultra-smooth finish.
Spicy and sweet, long finish. Also a visual experience as probably the best looking whisky I own, bottle and case both.
A mellow Scotch with undertones of melon and caramel balanced with traditional notes of spice and smoke. A very sippable Scotch neat, reminiscent of a summer evening.
Lot of flavor to work through. Every time I drink it I am experiencing different things.
It's on the sweeter side with less peat. Caramel, toffee, apricot. It's almost as good as the 18 year old Glenmorangie, but more affordable.
nice spicy finsih
Expensive, but worth the price in my opinion.
Sweet Notes of vanilla, floral and honey. Very smooth with a long finish. One of my faves.
My favorite daily drinker. Nice and smooth and approachable for new people to scotch.
Very good! Great scotch to start with if you have not tried Scotch before.
The Sauterne sweetness coats the tongue. While the sweetness is present, isn't saccharine. This isn't the Shirley Temple of scotches. The flavor is complex with an unbelievable long finish. This has become one of my favorite single malts.
Sweet, smooth and mellow. A few drops of water opens the flavor flow of vanilla, honey and oak. Light on the tongue, short on the finish, goes down easy.
This topped my bar. Unbelievably easy to enjoy. The heat is low on the spiral in my opinion, so the flavor is still there when you start to warm up in your core. Another awesome find. My home bar after 13 months is packed with awesome spirits. And this one is the one I’ll recommend to beginners and experts alike.
This is 100% my favorite Scotch. It was the first scotch I could get my wife to drink neat. This is a VERY easy drinking scotch that is light on the peat. If you're looking for a smokey scotch you should look elsewhere. If you're looking for vanilla, butterscotch, toffee, and a smooth whiskey finish - this is your scotch!
Needs at least 3 drops of water. Not as good as the 15 yr Cadboll Estate 15 year.
Very good flavor with a good spicy aftertaste
Great sipping over ice. Nice warmth and spice upfront followed up with a bit of sweet to mellow it over and finished off with good a Flaviar left on the palate. Will be a repeat in our home stockpile.
Beautiful nose and divine on the pallet
One of my favorites!
Gentler than Quinta Ruban or Lasanta, of course, but I loved the candy quality of this bottle. Maybe not complex enough for me to pay over $100, but any less and I'm in.
Lovely whiskey with the extra taste of the cask finish that makes it extra special
Very smooth with a lot flavor. Easy drinking
Solid whiskey: good balance of honey/sweet and spice. Will enjoy with good friends.
Very simple but good
Very good. Notes of vanilla/honey more on the smooth side than other Scotches out there. Is in my rotation to buy when running low
very smooth, delicate seems to be a good description. This is very enjoyable dram, but it does not seem as complex or interesting as the other Glenmorangie's I have been drinking. I like it but will probably not buy again.
Smooth and excellent!
I love the smoothness and the full flavor.
The one that introduced me to Sauterns-finished malts. Still has a place in my heart, although I have found better tasting sweet wine finished drams. Slightly spicy at times, but overall delicate and soft and well rounded. The sweetness is about 3 on a 5-point scale, short finish. Wouldn't reject one if I am offered! But probably will not secure another bottle. Sorry my love!
Excellent! The original is a good scotch, however this takes it to the next level. It’s got a nice oak taste with a sweet and fruity finish. Highly recommended.
Smells overtly sweet, like port wine. I can smell caramel, a hint of honey, and whiff of mint. An occasional waft of peat creeps in as well.
Tastes immediately sweet, with a mid point burn, and mild finish with a strong leathery taste.
There is a cinnamon and spice after taste that lingers for quite some time. Finally finishes with a delicious two stroke smoke goodbye; like a delicious smokey coffee. Second taste is of pepper and crackers. The leathery and smokey finish is still there.
This is a very drinkable scotch. I wouldn't mind having a bottle in my bar, although I prefer a bit more sherry sweet to my scotches.
that's a nice dram. honey sweet with a kick on the end
Unique and tasty, flavour profile details are spot on
Oh my. The Nectar D’Or may have just become my new favorite. From the first smell and taste, I was impressed. The aroma hints at citrus without being overly fruity. The texture engulfs the entire palette with a slightly “thicker” sensation, even when a bit of water is added. As for taste? Spectacular. The top note for me was the honey and zest. Combining the three elements brought to mind a caramel of sorts-though I didn’t taste it directly. Definitely worth checking out!
Delicious sweet whisky
A nice drink with a white wine nose and palette with smooth wine/whiskey finish.
Loved it, one of the best whiskys I've tried.
Amazing sweetness and a nice viscosity. Wonderful dram.
Again, not a bad drink. Just too sweet for my taste.
As smooth and pleasant as they come. Sweet.
Great expression. Wonderful “no brainier”’option
Loved it. Especially the sauterne cask.
Fruits reign supreme. Almost no bitterness or smoke, goes down incredibly smooth. Best for those that are not big into smoke or peat.
This is the scotch that really got me into scotch. My preferences have moved more towards smoke and peat, but this still remains one of my favorites.
More than just a desert dram. Honey, apricots, vanilla, dried fruits and a hint of orange zest. A bit of spice on the medium finish to remind you its scotch and balance the sweetness.
Nice and smooth, very friendly with the tongue. Vanilla and honey aroma with some dried fruits, orange zest and a bit of pepper. In the mouth a bit sweet with peppery sensation and a long and pleasant aftertaste.
Extremely drinkable. The perfect amount of sweetness while also having the slight whiskey burn.
Мягкий и очень приятный виски с сладковатыми полутонами. Чувствуются фрукты и мед. Превосходный выбор для знакомства людей с миром виски.
A solid, cheaper scotch to introduce anyone to
Delicate fruit, light honey, complexity to explore. Nice dram!
Very smooth finish. Excellent value.
Better than expected.
Nice nose, a little rough at the end, not for beginners.
Really like it!
The peach undertone reminds me of West End Peach from years ago. A-mazing!
