One of the world's best selling old single malts, Glemorangie's spirit flows from Scotland's tallest stills, over 16 feet tall for those that are counting. Over the years Bill Lumsden has been at the forefront of research into the influence of the cask on whisky and as such Glenmorangie is the leading exponent of whisky 'finishes', be that sherry, wine or virgin oak. The distillery selects its wood from the Mark Twain forest in the Ozark mountains and ensures that the wood is air dried rather than kilned.

Nectar D'Or is probably a reference to the golden nectar that was previously held in the casks used to finish the whisky. This is a sauternes-finished single malt from the Glenmorangie distillery, a fruity, vinous release from the Highland distillery.

Age: 12 years old

Cask Type: Finished in Sauternes cask

46% ABV / 70cl
