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.

Was ein milder Whisky. Und in dieser Eigenschaft hat er mich mehr überzeugt, als seine größeren Geschwister (Lasantar und Nectar). 71 Punkte.

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.

High quality "entrance" level whisky from Highlands. Wonderful balances.

Nose

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.

Green apples, some vanilla, honey in the distance. Light and accessible.

Taste

Light. Silky mouthfeel with some honey. Green apples, vanilla and caramel. Just like the nose. Accessible and easy to drink.

Finish

A rather short finish with some fading vanilla and caramel notes.

Comments

Not very challenging but balanced and accessible. One of the best entry level malts one can probably buy. I like it!
