Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Producer

    Nose: Dark mint chocolate, tangerines and Seville oranges mingle with sandalwood and walnut before giving way to a spicy finish of pepper and nutmeg.

    Palate: Mint chocolate and walnuts envelop the palate like velvet, laying the foundations for rose, Turkish delight and sweet Seville oranges.

    Finish: Long-lasting silky aftertaste leaving dark chocolate mints and traces of orange.

    An awesome taste treat! Tasted Glenmorangie during a trip to Scotland, but this one was even better!

    It's very well crafted, and delivers strongly on the creaminess and smoothness I was expecting. I was expecting the Port and other flavors to be subtle, but they are actually very bold and forward: chocolate, orange, nuts. The taste is very very sweet, too much so in my opinion, like having a big mouthful of dessert. That's what my brain says at least, because my palate seems to not care, as I ended up helping myself to four glasses of it on the first night I opened the bottle.

    Probably one of the nicest, smoothest and warmest whiskys out there. It's pure bliss in a bottle, not to mention an unusual find. You won't get it in Tesco that's for sure.

    I actually prefer the 10 Year Old Original over this. I had one bottle and although this is excellent but it just isn’t as good, hence 4 stars. I may be in the minority but I feel the Original is the better product. That remains my drink of choice

    A lovely enjoyable whisky at a super price. I'm no expert but I found the style and character references spot on which reflects my high rating. For my taste however I found it a fraction too sweet. Even so, have and am enjoying the experience.

    I bought several times at the airport and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s been a year since the last one so I picked it up locally and was really disappointed. Not nearly as good as I remember it

    Basins, chocolate, and a slight taste of orange. Very delicious scotch. Pairs well with a cigar. One of my personal favorites.

    The port comes through strong. It smells like port and tastes like port. Which is great! It carries with it all the complexity of that sweet wine. All that port flavors comes over, under, and through the Glenmorangie. It's a cutting taste. Get it before it's gone!

    I tried this at a high end restaurant recently. After dinner, I immediately bought a bottle! It's luscious, and will be one of my favorites at the sweeter end of the spectrum!

    This is an excellent whisky to give someone who thinks smooth=good when it comes to whisky. It's 46% so it's far from smooth and yet the taste is so immense and in-your-face that it should be instantly accessible to even the most inexperienced of whisky drinkers. Delicious!

    Cask finished whisky has never been my thing. Even though I prefer big peat and/or sherry maturation, I have a soft spot for the Glenmorangie 10yr original because it is the first single malt that I ever had. While there are some of the nutty banana flavors of the 10yr present, this stuff is completely different. In the glass it almost looks like rose wine. On the nose all I get is fruit. On the palate there is some spice (nutmeg?) mixed with the fruit. This is not the fruit of sherry maturation. It's the kind of sharp sweet/tangy that was present in the fruit punch I loved as a kid. The finish is sweet and of medium length. The port is always present throughout. Overall, this will do nothing to make finished whisky ny favorite. That being said it's good unique stuff, that is a nice change of pace from the Islay, coastal and sherry matured whiskies that I love. I recommend that you give it a try, if you haven't already.

    To experience the taste notes, you really have to place it on the tip of your tongue. There is orange, raisins and bit of spices. I thought the smokiness could be improved to increase it a bit more as that would have balanced the sweetness of orange. The sweet aftertaste of orange and raising is a bit overpowering and does injustice to otherwise a great malt.

    Not everyone will like the idea of whiskey with a slightly sweet aftertaste. With products such as Jack Daniels Honey becoming popular, these drinks seem to be in ascendency. In my opinion, Quinta Ruben is one of the best.
