  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 80 points Administrator

    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.

    Glenmorangie 10 yo | 40% | 20 + 20 + 20 + 20 = 80pts
    N: Flower meadow, freshly cut grass, fresh yellow apples, honey, vanilla and white grapes.
    T: Light bitter-sour base of citrus peel, followed by ripe apples, light, transparent, little wood, a little bitterness of dandelion petals.
    F: Dry, short, empty, hay and vanilla.
    B: He has no particular complaints, but it is hard to call him memorable.

  4. Falnor scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

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