Glenmorangie Whisky – 10 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Tonight’s tasking is a Glenmorangie Whisky – 10 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glenmorangie is Gaelic for “Glen of Tranquility

Tain,
Ross-shire
IV19 1BR

telephone 01862 892447
website www.glenmorangie.com

Just to repeat ourselves go and check out the website, you will find it all, how all the restructuring that is going on to increase its output and range of wee drams.
Also check the range of woods used in the finishing.

Albeit a very large producer it is only done by the “sixteen men of Tain”

For the records this wee malt is still the biggest selling malt in Scotland, on that basis we are expecting great things from this tasting, we are sure that we will not be disappointed.

Once again we dive headlong into a tasting session, full of excitement not knowing what we will find and experience, this is a great pastime, the Whisky Boys will always be honest and true, just like the Scotch drams we drink.

Let it all begin.

Colour, we agree is pale gold.

 

Jims tasting

Nose…Soft and floral, but with a sting in the nose.

Taste…Very complex, with fruit, spice, buttery vanilla its all in there.

Finish…Smooth and quite long with a “smack” of pears.

 


Dougies tasting

Nose…Slight caramel with butter “sizzling” in the pan.

Taste…lively citrus with a gingery tang.

Finish…Smooth with lingering burnt orange.

 


Nicolas tasting

Nose…Butterscotch like the nippy Weatheralls sweets.

Taste… A festive spiciness.

Finish…long and quite gingery.

 

Well that was a good one. We all agreed why it is Scotland’s favourite malt nip, it ticks all the right boxes as far as a single malt goes, it is fruity and warming, the ideal bottle to go first footing with just after the bells, every home will welcome you with open arms and hope that you do not leave until the bottle of malt becomes just a bottle.

If you are a lover of Whisky then you should at all times have a bottle of Glenmornagie in your cabinet, no receiver of this dram in the hospitality of your own home will ever go away with disappointment.

  1. I always love reading reviews that find similar conclusions to my own; and this one was almost spooky in terms of the aromas and flavours you found. I absolutely agree with you in that it is a must have in any whisky drinkers cabinet, and I would never go without one. It is also my personal whisky of choice for a sneaky sip from hip flask on a cold day; very nice indeed. ;)

    Dear sir,

    How is it possible to find out the year of one of your whisky bottle I have?
    Thanks for your answer,

    I noticed that some of your whiskeys have ratings and some do not. What would you rate (number of corks) the Glenmorangie Whisky – 10 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky at?

    Also, what exactly is a “Dram”. Here in the States we go by shots or jiggers.

    Thanks,
    Mark
