Glenmorangie 10 is some seriously tasty stuff. Labeled as The Original, this flagship offering from Glenmorangie shows just how good a baseline offering can be when you take your time to craft a quality product. It’s light, fruity, malty and has depth of flavor that is hard to beat at its age and for its price.
Glenmorangie started as a farm brewery but in 1843 it began distilling. In 2004 the Distillery was sold to Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton for around $300 million Pounds and soon after the purchase the now iconic curvy bottles were introduced. This look and the renaming of the different variants to French sounding names has helped position Glenmorangie as a luxury brand and it’s Ealanta was named best whisky in the world for 2013.
Overall this is a mighty tasty whisky and among my favorites. It’s light, fruity and malty without being overly sweet and cloying. The variety of fruit and sweet notes help keep this dram balanced and interesting. There is a cool refreshing quality that, paired with the delightful flavor and aroma, make this a daily drinker that is never boring and always a welcome sight to see sitting in my glass.

Glenmorangie 10yr The Original Review
Pale honey with flecks of green
Big floral and fruity notes come wafting out of the glass with malt coming up close behind. Honey paves the way for some banana nut muffin and a sweet natural tasting vanilla.
Big rolling waves of tropical fruit, orchard fruit and malt surge out of the glass and coat the palate like a blanket. Some patches of honey and graham cracker are sewn in with a sweet buttery thread.
Smooth and almost refreshing going down.
Medium long and filled with rich tropical fruit and malt.
