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.
