GLENMORANGIE 12 YEAR OLD Nectar d'Or 46%

Single Malt, Scotland / Highlands 70cl Ref: 14590

A must have LMDW

Glenmorangie is a pioneer in finishing techniques. It was the first distillery to offer whiskies finished in port and madeira casks; it was the first, and perhaps the only, to really master the effects of double maturation on whisky. Bill Lumsden, the head of distilling and whisky creation at the famous distillery, completely won us over with his single malt finished in Sauternes barrels. Finishing in Sauternes barrels gives the whisky liveliness and a thicker texture, without masking Glenmorangie’s malty, spicy and refined style. A classic, that La Maison du Whisky wholeheartedly recommends.

After the Margaux appellation and, more precisely, the use of barrels from the eponymous château, Bill Lumsden, head of finishing at Glenmorangie, visited a prestigious château in Sauternes, to concoct this version that successfully lives up to its name: Nectar d’Or (golden nectar).

Tasting note

  • Appearance : old gold with glints of topaz.
  • Nose : simultaneously firm and smooth. Pulpy notes of pineapple, banana and candied apricot, supported by a remarkable bitterness that brings out the effect of the Sauternes barrel finishing. Curry and cinnamon mingle with heady floral aromas.
  • Palate : sweet and silky. The palate is firmer than the bouquet might suggest, giving the whisky a very lively, fresh character. The smoothness of the bouquet returns in the mid-palate. Slightly salty, there are lingering flavours of roasted coffee, toffee, spice bread and peppermint.
  • Overall : oily, flavourful. Impregnated with a fruity lemon and passion fruit character, it also presents notes of beeswax and acacia honey. Retro-olfaction naturally reveals the gentle bitterness of the malted barley.
The brand

The brand

The Glenmorangie distillery has, since 1843, produced its famous single malt in the north of the Highlands. It owns the tallest stills in Scotland, a legacy of the gin stills installed when it first began. A pioneer of maturation in ex-bourbon casks in the 1960s, Glenmorangie also began experimenting with different finishes very early on thanks to the help and great skill of the famous nose, Dr Bill Lumsden. Its series of finishes aim to marry the finesse of this single malt with the flavours and tannins of different wines during a second maturation that lasts around two years. Find out more
