Nectar D'Or is probably a reference to the golden nectar that was previously held in the casks used to finish the whisky. In a move praised by the scotch community, Glenmorangie chose to take their standard 10yr whisky and gift it an extra 2yrs in fruity french fortified white wine (Sauternes) Barrels. The move introduces both a complex sweetness and a warming fruity spice.
The Glenmorangie distillery was established in 1843, on the Dornoch Firth by brothers William and John Matheson.
The site originally held a farm distillery under the name Morangie. There is evidence that distillation was carried out at this site during the early 18th century (Illegally).
To some extent, Glenmorangie were pioneers in the field of wood finishes. Delectable examples include the Sauternes-finished Nectar D'Or and the Côte De Beaune-finished twelve year-old.

What a nose. Apricot sweetness and a woody spice kick in as a result of the extra 2 years. Balanced out with bright vanilla custard, nuts and a general dessert theme.
Sweetness and spice make this the perfect summer dram. Light vanillas, caramels and sponge cake. Balanced out with spicy lemon zest. So smooth in the mouth too.
Long sugars and spice, though the alcohol feel abandons quickly. Leaving behind more apricot and dessert wine flavours and a pleasant warm spice on the tongue.
