Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or Sauternes Cask Finish
Glenmorangie // Highlands, Scotland
Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or Sauternes Cask Finish lost its age statement in the summer of 2019 when the brand revamped its Extra Matured Range. The single malt still matures initially in ex-bourbon barrels and is then finished in Sauternes wine casks, a French dessert wine. But the length of time in either barrel isn't stated. The Nectar d'Or (gold nectar) is named for the sweet golden wine casks in which the whisky is finished.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"Glenmorangie's Nectar D'Or is a standout in their line-up, a wonderfully elegant dram. The sweetness of honey comes across on the initial taste, along with candied orange peel, vanilla, pear, and a touch of salt. With or without its age statement, it's an excellent Scotch."
