Glenmorangie 10 yo Original


My earlier adventure with the Glenmorangie was the now discontinued, burgundy wood finish. The 10yo Original is the best selling single malt whisky in Scotland and the Scots must be knowing something about scotch. The whisky was also ranked the best Single Malt in the 10 Years Old to 12 Years Old Category of Highland/Speyside Malt Whisky in Jim Murray’s “Whisky Bible 2008”.

Notes —¬† Flowers, toffee and vanilla on the nose. Sweet on the palette at first, almost like sugar syrup or toffee, then a hint of spice and peat before fading to a refreshing and warming mint.

Summary — A very delicate and complex whisky ideal for the first time single malt drinker. It is a bit bland to my taste however. I’d prefer an islay malt anyday.
