New Glenmorangie 15 goes to market

The new expression.
Glenmorangie named "Distiller of the Year." Story here.

Glenmorangie today announced the release of its Nectar D'Òr 15 yr old whisky, the expansion of its Extra Matured Range, which includes Quinta Ruban.

Nectar D'Òr 15 initially is matured for at least a decade in ex-bourbon American white oak casks, then extra matured in ex-sauternes casks for five years, according to Dr. Bill Lumsden, head of whisky creation for the Scottish distiller.

The whiskey is stored in hand-selected wine barriques (59 gallon capacity barrels) to develop its flavors, and is non-chill-filtered for additional aroma.

The new product, bottled at 46% abv (92 proof) will sell for a suggested retail price of $70.
