Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky – the Nectar D’or 15 year old extra matured in Sauternes casks. This non chill-filtered single malt is initially matured in Bourbon Casks then extra matured or ‘finished’ in Sauternes ‘barriques’, to create a sumptuous taste.
Literally ‘the golden drink of the Gods’, Glenmorangie Nectar D’or derives its lemony honey silkiness and sumptuous finish from the rare Sauternes barriques (from the most renowned French vineyards) selected for extra maturation.
Extra Matured: In the early 1990’s our passion for wood led us to experiment: we extra matured Glenmorangie in a different cask for only the last couple of years of maturation. To great success! This ‘finishing’ touch adds further characteristics to Glenmorangie Extra Matured range was born.
A Journey of Passion…: Our ongoing quest for perfection takes us on many journeys, exploring the world for inspiration. After a painstaking search, we have secured the very best oak casks from some of the great vineyards of the world for our Glenmorangie Extra Matured range.
…in the Footsteps of Pioneers: Our pursuit of perfection has endured over 165 years, starting in 1843 with the installation of the tallest whisky stills in Scotland. It has continued with our insistence on using American white oak casks to which to age our whisky. These casks are ideal for Glenmorangie, adding a natural sweetness to the subtle tastes of our spirit. As we only use our twice whilst many other refill their casks many times, Glenmorangie benefits from both the quality and freshness of the wood.
A Legendary Legacy: At our Highland distillery, Glenmorangie (Scots Gaelic for ‘Glen of Tranquility’), balances this thirst for innovation with our long years of experience to craft the perfectly balanced dram.
