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.

As a relative newcomer to the world of single malts (5 years or so), the Glenmorangie 10 year is at the top of my list. Very smooth with a hint of fruity aftertaste.
Very easy on the palate. I have an affinity towards smoke, and this is simply a lovely floral alternative.
Fantastic. A really mellow and rich speyside. I have more experience with smokier whiskies, but this is a very pleasant change of pace.
Silky texture to the tongue, and a very delightful toffee taste that lingers long at the the aftertaste
I fell in love with this speyside the moment I opened the bottle. And it remains my favorite highland whisky to date. The nose is very fruity, with lemon really taking center stage at the beginning, later giving way to other notes of citrus, light vanilla, enticing floral notes, and the scent of fresh baked banana bread encapsulating all of that. The palate starts where we left off in the nose, bananas hit you immediately, followed by those citrus and vanilla notes, then further developing into honey and coconut. The finish is once again a very bright and alluring sweetness with medium length. Just a great whisky in every way, if you want to get someone into the world of scottish whisky, this may just be the way to open that door for them.
Is malt, is balanced, is smooth, is the benchmark
Delicate fruit and toffee flavor, pleasant aroma. Medium sweetness, just a hint of smoke, much milder than what I expected from a highland whisky. Very nice, great gateway Scotch.
I enjoy this whisky has been my daily drink for some time creamy nice mouth feel finish is nice recommend
After a lifetime of believing I just didn't like whisky (no matter the age or origin), I fell head over heels for this one.
I’m a newcomer to single malts so my nose and palette are very inexperienced, hence that’s why I have only gave it 4 stars. I do add a small splash of water to ‘open up’ the flavour of my whiskey and after a few sniffs and sips of this Highland dram, I could really smell toffee coming through, with a light, fruity taste on the tongue. Let the whiskey linger in the mouth for a second or two before swallowing and you will be greeted with a smooth, fresh finish which tingles my taste buds for a few minutes afterwards. This is my go to everyday dram and fantastic buy considering it was on offer from a major chain supermarket.
This is the continuation drink after Glenmorangie Nectar Dor. Comparing to Nectar, the Original is significantly rough. But ok by it’s own..
Smooth, doesn't let you down, is sweet and balanced. It's amazing that among single malts, even the less expensive are outstanding. Glenmorangie has great value for its price, and is never a disappointing scotch to have a dram of. A great scotch for beginners and veteran scotch drinkers alike.
As good as it gets from the Glen family....truly superior to Gle?fiddich and Glenlivet 12/15 years
Simply first class
Its great drink, melodious in each sip......Cheers*
Very easy drinking and there is a lot to like about it, especially if like me you are relatively new to whisky. Very enjoyable.
There are plenty of whisky snobs out there who talk rubbish. The bottom line is that if you like it, then it is great whisky. I don’t care for smokiness or peatiness as it tastes like TCP to me, but I recognise that others think differently and that is fine. I like smooth whiskies and this is an excellent and affordable example. I saw a review once that suggested MacCallan Gold was for people who don’t like whisky. These are the words of an idiot. Enjoy what you enjoy and I really enjoy this.
Young, not pretentious.
This is a very uncomplicated whisky but it is nicely scented and a nice color. the more Glenmorangie's I drink just like this one they are all good!
This whisky has an aroma of a lemon running through a mangrove at midday on Summer solstice whilst juggling mangoes which are in turn juggling mini bananas, which are in turn juggling peaches. The finish is an orange in a sports car backing down the M1 shouting 'tally ho' with unicorns in the rear seat completing a rubik's cube with its rear hooves. On the palate it is a 1930's jazz band playing 'Rhapsody in Blue' backwards whilst doing the can can trying not to step on the fluffy bunnies that frolic around their feet.
