Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Original Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Soft, clean and refreshing: lemon sherbert and apricots, with honeyed fruit and a touch of toffee and vanilla. Gentle and satisfying.
Palate: A little weightier on the palate, with honey and malt, banana bread and subtle sweet spices. Clean and well balanced.
Finish: The honeyed fruit fades softly, and the finish is whistle-clean.
Comment: A textbook whisky, this – well made, beautifully balanced, delicate but still flavoursome.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Aroma: Imagine yourself in an Italian garden surrounded with mandarin, lemon, apple, pear and peach trees, their fruit ripening in the sun. Add to this the scent of vanilla ice cream, then enjoy the herbal aromas of geranium and wild mint growing nearby.
Add water to The Original and you wander into a flower garden with lemony bergamot, apricot and mandarin. Floral notes of geranium, sweet honeysuckle and piquant narcissus mix with mint and the herbal essence of eucalyptus, nutmeg and ginger.
Taste: Savour the fruits of the Italian garden as creamy vanilla slips like liquid silk over the tongue as peaches and cream, mandarins and lemons effervesce in the mouth.
Aromatic essences of fennel and nutmeg tantalise with crumbly almond and coconut that gives way to a nectar that envelops all the fruit, spice and nut flavours in a honeyed caress.
Finish: The charming sweetness of delicious juices is left on the tongue.

It is pleasing and very quaffable however it lacks intrigue, there's nothing that grabs you. Good for a prezzie, there's better if you're buying for yourself.
Pleasant enough with a cube of ice. Sweet, juicy, a little bit of perfectly integrated oak. Not bad at all. Maybe a bit dry is all.
I wasn't sure what to think when I opened this. I was expecting to be punched in the face with peat and burn. The aroma is inviting. The taste is sweet but gentle enough to not make this like a fruity mix drink. The color is pleasing. This is a great alcohol for an astounding price that can easily be added to any party you visit or kept at home for when you need something on the rocks after a long day.
Outstanding and it's mild.
first time I've tried this one very moreish has smell almost like d smell of cake cooked with orange zest when it comes out of oven, fast is malty but with vanilla icecream left in the mouth once swallowed really delicious would recommend good value for money
In my opinion this is the best whisky of this style. Malty mixed with toffee, fruit and a delicious nuttiness on the finish. For many people Glenlivet and Glenfiddich are their introduction to songs malt scotch whisky. They were my first single malts after years of drinking blends, Irish whiskey and bourbon. It should be this. I like all styles of single malt whisky. This is my favorite amongst the lighter malty whiskies. Anyone who favors light whiskies who haven't tried this need to.
When I tasted it by the first time, I felt something familiar, a whisky that I tasted before, the tyrconnel single malt NAS. In my opinion, G10yo is a good refreshing malt, but what I expect, even not being an expert, is something better that tastes like a malt like this one, but with more flavour and more delicious, even with less body (if so, with body, even better) e.g. Miyagikyo or Yamazaki.
Very nice, with the right sweetness, balanced and a touch of fire. Fantastic for those wanting a sweeter taste
Great single malt for the price!
I can finally affordably drink my problems away, after another depressing day while look somewhat classy. It's hard to stop drinking this hell water
This is a delicious whisky. It is a great value and happens to be better than any whisky of this style, most of which cost much more
One of my favourite well balanced malt best for every day dram !!
It has just the right amount of burn.
While not the very best malt whisky, it's very good, straight (I like the bite), or with just a little water (my wife doesn't). Nicely balanced, good tastes come through, and a lovely finish. There's none better, or even as good, at that price. Our everyday whisky.
Sweet and fruity, very gentle, clean and balanced. Excellent.
This is one of my all time favorites. It's well balanced (for my taste).
I just purchased a bottle of the glenmorangie 10 year original and I can't wait to burst it open, but just out of interest, do these bottles increase in value much if I was to keep it sealed. (10/years or so) sorry if I offend anybody with silly questions
This is the whisky which navigated me away from peat in favor of great balance. Fantastic bright notes, not-overly-sweet finish. Highly recommended.
Great scotch at a reasonable price.
I was raised in the Spey Valley area, I have been drinking malts for about 25 years now (legally anyway). I have tried hundreds of malts from over peaty Islay whiskies to heather, honey, citrus, sea salted etc. I always come back to my glen, its like my long lost best friend every time I buy a bottle. Sure it''s simple, not pretentious (though the tasters description is) It''s helped me through rough times, tough times and love. I actually like the lack of peat, the sweet honey taste (with a drop of h20). They have simply got it right with this simple pure whisky. I don''t agree its just for beginning single malt drinkers, it''s a dram for any liquor cabinet, happy times and friends.
