Tasting Notes: Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Original Scotch Whisky

We shared a bottle of Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Original Scotch Whisky with a new friend, who used to guide tourists in Africa and is a scuba diving instructor. It was a memorable evening, making us wish whisky was sold with great company, somehow packaged in a giant box. We don't think it's any sillier than people popping out of birthday cakes. But now that the party's over, let's dive into this review.


Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Original Scotch Whisky is a single malt scotch, meaning that it is produced in one Scottish factory (i.e., it's not blended with whiskies from other factories). Its distinctive label is bright orange. We would argue that the nose, as well, smells of oranges. We also detected almonds, and flowers. The smell is overall bright and of decent complexity for this younger single malt. There's nothing missing, and nothing to remove. The taste is very smooth, with no spice. The scotch has a pleasant creaminess, with an aftertaste of almonds. Whisky is both a luxury product and an indulgence. Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Original meets those expectations in a way that would not overwhelm a whisky beginner.

It's a perfect whisky before dinner, or for saying “welcome” to a new friend. We recommend this whisky almost as much as we would recommend making new friends. —Guillaume Garih
