Glenmorangie unveils Nectar D’Òr Scotch

3rd November, 2011 by Marinel FitzSimons

Glenmorangie has announced the release of its Nectar D’Òr 15 yr old whisky.

Glenmorangie Nectar D’Òr 15 Years Old is initially matured for a minimum of 10 years in ex-Bourbon American white oak casks, then extra matured in old Sauternes casks for a further five years. The extended maturation period lends the spirit a citrusy and honeyed quality.

Glenmorangie head of distilling and whisky creation Bill Lumsden explained: “The result of extra-maturing Nectar D’Òr for an additional three years has improved the voluptuous whisky; Nectar D’Òr 15 Years Old is characterised by rich flavours of luscious desserts and spicy oak tannins, resulting from the extra-maturation process.”

Nectar D’Òr 15 Years Old is the expansion of Extra Matured Range, which includes Quinta Ruban.

The new product, bottled at 46% ABV is available at Waitrose and Sainsbury’s for £38.99 ($62.31).
