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.

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.
I love the Smoky flavor
Wonderfully rich and complex with a delicious sweet, fruity and floral character and subtle hints of spice around the edges. It''s hard to believe that a scotch of this quality is so affordable. An essential dram.
Smother the Glenlivet easer on the palate then Glenfedich.
