Details
Inspired by the memory of entering a French pastry shop, The Nectar swirls with the sweet scents of honeycomb, orange syrup and brioche, balanced by a soft touch of spice. Sumptuously sweet and complex, it's packed with nectar-like flavours that are not usually found in a single malt Scotch whisky.
To achieve this delectable flavour profile, Glenmorangie aged the whisky for 16 years in bourbon casks and sweet white wine casks from France, Spain and Hungary, for a stunning dessert-like complexity with a long and lingering finish.

TASTING NOTES:
Rich and heady

Appearance

Bronzed gold

Aroma

Decadent on the nose, with notes of just-baked brioche, baked apricot, vanilla pudding, toasted almonds and chestnuts, plus hints of chocolate truffles. When a few drops of water are added, there is a burst of candy sweetness, touches of orange syrup, a flinty minerality and a distinctive herbal top note, like sage or basil.

Taste

The texture is unctuous and sticky, but with a balancing lemon zestiness. This leads into rich, sweet flavours of vanilla crème anglaise, baked apricots, warm raisins, roasting chestnuts and a mixture of spices, particularly nutmeg and star anise. An oaky backbone lasts throughout the taste, but is always balanced by sweet, fruity and spicy notes.

BLEND & ORIGIN GLENMORANGIE

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Glenmorangie The Nectar 16 Years Old

Using silky smooth, creamy Glenmorangie from ex-bourbon casks, the whisky is then finished in a range of white wine casks, which combine to offer a stunningly sweet taste experience.
 

Sauternes and Monbazillac casks from France contribute the sumptuous pastry, brioche, meringue and baked apple notes.
 

Moscatel casks from Spain give some cake and sweet, syrupy dessert-like notes, while Tokaji casks from Hungary contribute white chocolate, almond and honeycomb flavours to the final blend recipe.
 

As a finishing touch, the whisky is non-chill filtered to develop additional character and mouthfeel.
