    The predecessor of Glenmorangie`s Nectar D`Or, the

    1981 Sauternes Wood Finish was aged for 21 years, the last two of which were

    spent in premier cru Chateau d`Yquem casks. There are just 4,000 individually

    numbered bottles.

  5. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "A perfect example of what wood-finishing (so often reviled by some) can

    achieve, Glenmorangie 1981 spent the last two of its 21 years of

    maturation in casks formerly containing Chateau d`Yquem. A legendary

    `Morangie."
