Whisky Review – Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Original

I’ve started single malt whiskies with a bang – going directly with peated Laphroaig Quarter Cask but immediately I wanted to have something from the other side of the scale to balance it out. As it happened, my sister in law traveled abroad and I quickly looked at our Duty Free shop selection and asked her to bring me a bottle of Glenmorangie 10.

So this one was my first Glenmorangie bottle and it served me faithfully until it was finished couple of weeks ago. Good thing I remembered to write down some tasting notes with the last dram 🙂

Glenmorangie Original 10 yo (40%, Buy here for £29)

the-original-10Nose: Sweet vanilla, Honey, citrus full of oranges blossom, creamy, malty cereal. not very complex but very enjoyable.

Palate: Citrus and sweetness Followed by some spicy and peppery oak wood.

Finish: Short finish. Some oak and spiciness, all layered with sweet honey.

Conclusion: One of the good low level single malts. A great starter whisky for newbies coming over from simple blends into single malt whiskies. It was one of my first purchases and I’m happy it was my first non-peated whisky bottles.

    Nice review Yoav, just by chance I sat down with this one last night too to write down my thoughts and came away reminded how good it is for an entry level expression.
