Glenmorangie 10 year old Malt Whisky Tasting notes.
The delicate layers of flavour make it one of the most palatable single whiskies. Appealing to both novices and connoisseurs alike.
Colour: Note the bright, pale-amber hue. typical of a whisky matured in bourbon casks.
Nose: delicate, sophisticated and clean. The key notes are floral, rather than cereal, perhaps mandarin and vanilla, with light hints of honey.
A leading Parisian perfume house identified no less than 26 individual aromas in the malt, from apple and mango to cinnamon and quince.
Taste: First note the feel of the spirit as it slides over your tongue: creamy, but not cloying; clean and slightly dry on the back of the palate; medium-bodied.
The flavour is well-balanced: no single feature dominates.
There is a subtle smokiness; the flower and fruit scents noted earlier have changed to a delicate honey-wood, nutty flavour.
Some identify intriguing top-notes of fennel, spice and bergamot.
The overall effect is fresh, aromatic and refined, and the after-taste is clean and salving.
Finish: The finish of Glenmorangie Ten Years Old is intriguing and complex as the fruitness, creamy sweetness and almond nuttiness all come together before gently fading and leaving the drinker eager for more.
