The Dapper Man reviews Glenmorangie Original (10 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky). A few months ago I was given a Glenmorangie Sampler that included four 100ml blends of Glenmorangie Scotch Whisky. They included:
- Glenmorangie (original)
- Nectar D’Or
- Quinta Ruban
Today I’m going to open and sample the Glenmorangie (Original) 10 year old Single Malt Scotch.
For a brief history and primer on scotch please read our Scotch 101 article.
History of Glenmorangie
Glenmorangie was established in 1843 and is from the highlands so in general the flavor profile should be light (not a lot of peat or smoke). Below is the description from Glenmorangie’s website.
The original expression of our elegant, floral spirit and the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. A ten-year-old single malt, Glenmorangie Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland’s tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks.It is here, maturing for ten long years in a range of ex-bourbon casks such as our famous slow-grown and air-dried ‘designer casks’ from Missouri, that our raw spirit develops a perfect balance between sweetness and complexity. Resulting in a mature spirit that is soft, mellow and creamy. Perfect for enjoying at any time.
Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch
Aroma: The scent of citrus and ripening peaches is softened by the aroma of vanilla.
Taste: First, vanilla is detected on the tongue before it ripples along the palate bringing a burst of flowery fruitiness.
Finish: About a minute after tasting, you are left with a clean and salving aftertaste with hints of orange and peach.
Do I get all those flavors? No, but I’m still developing my palate and learning how to taste different flavors. What I will say is that I like Glenmorangie 10yr and suggest you try it if given a chance. It’s light, smooth, and flavorful.
Thank you for visiting The Dapper Man we hope you have a fantastic day.
