Relaunched in 2011, Glenmorangie's sauternes-finished Nectar d'Or is now proudly boasting a prominent age statement that wasn't there before, proclaiming it to be 12 years old. Give it a couple of years and it'll be staying out after supper and growing a weedy moustache on its top lip.
Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or 12 Year Old Reviews

Very sweet. Tastes like sauternes. Still light and nice as a desert.
Just delicious. No qualifications. The best single malt I have ever tasted and I''ve tasted them all.
I didn't think much of this to start with - a little sweet for my taste. It has since grown on me and might invest in another bottle
I have drank all these Glenmorangie scotch boys. Let me tell you that the 12 year Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or is by far the best smoothest taste you will ever experience for the price. I like it as well as the 18 year. I am presently drinking the 10 year because I am retitred but will be getting the Nectar D'Or in 2 days. Really why do I drink the original when the 12 is superb.
An awesome malt very mellow and citrussy.One definitely to be savoured cold and slow, not enough of a dram-snob to come out with all the usual accompanying pretentiousness,but suffice it to say,if you haven't tasted it,you should,if you have,I need say no more. The finish is subtly christmassy and it nudges your taste buds into wanting to savour the next sip again and again,SUPERB DRAM,congratulations to the sixteen men of Tain (I'm from Nairn originally) STAND PROUD
A beautiful tasting whisky goes well wi a bag a cheese n onion
What can I say, this truely is akin to God's Nectar! Add a bit of ice-cold water, and a few large ice cubes, and sit back and enjoy this lavishishly, almost ostentatiously vanillery, honey, and lemony sweet delight. It's richness can be likened to the richest french pastries. Drinking it extremely chilled brings it alive, probably the best of the extra-matured range, closely followed by quinta ruban, and lasanta.It's made a tad spicy by subtle lashings of ginger, and nutmeg. Brilliant!!
Prominent flavours that roll over the palate with this one are vanilla and subtle lemony flavours as with the aroma. Also hints of ginger and nutmeg especially towards the finish. Not as rich or spicy as the other two glenmorangies in the "expressions" range (i.e. lasanta, quinta ruban), slightly less smooth, but still enticing.Overall, more similar to the original than the other two, while still holding onto its own distinct characteristics. Well worth a try in my humble opinion.
