Light, accessible and rather undemanding - that's probably the best way to describe Glenmorangie's 10-year-old entry-level Single Malt. Matured exclusively in ex-bourbon casks, the nose is fresh and clean with unripe, quite sour fruits (green apples and grapes), vanilla cream and honey. With water, some herbal/minty notes start to emerge. On the palate, it arrives spirity and aromatic with citrus fruits, pears and nutmeg, turning more dry and bitter in the development. The finish is of medium length, nutty and mildly spicy. Solid average but nothing special.

Nose

Sweet spring apples and citrus fruit like orange and lime. Honey and cereals with some butter.

Taste

Again the apples and vanilla with honey and cream. A little fudge. Not so complex and quite the easy drinker.

Finish

Short finish. At the end slightly spicy, but the sweet vanilla with citrus is the main part.

Comments

Quite easy, drinkable, not very special but affordable. A fair combination for this entry level malt

Een heerlijke malt met na rijping op ex-bourbon vaten van Amerikaans wit eiken is het een whisky met vanille, perzik en sinaasappelaroma’s.

w/o water: sweet of fresh flowers, vanilla, perfumed, Irish whiskey.

w/ water: adds citrus notes

Taste

w/o water: sharp and sweet arrival, swift and short development of sweet milky chocolate to butterscotch.

w/ water: hesitant arrival, sharp development to bitter citrus. No chocolate.

Finish

w/ water: short and bitter sweet.

Comments

No or very, very little water. Great summer dram. Good value for money. Its no high flyer, but it doesn't disappoint either. Happy to recommend.

hmmmm, siroop tonen. Beetje aardbei achtig en kers, überhaupt rood fruit. Mooie tonen wel, aardig in balans. Wel erg zoet hoor. 

Taste

zoet, fruit tonen. Weinig uit te halen

Finish

Lekker wel, beetje pittig maar over het algemeen weer zoet. Niet karamel zoet zoals Dalwhnnie maar echt siroop achtig. Eens.
