One of my older boys brought this Glenmorangie The Original 10 Year for us to drink on Thanksgiving and while I’m more of an Irish Whiskey, American Bourbon guy, this was on my list of bottles to try, so I was happy and excited to open it and take a sip.
The first thing you will appreciate bout this Glenmorangie The Original 10 Year is its well balanced nose. The nose is floral and sweet but mixed with malt, It’s a really intoxicating scent.
The first sip was a pleasure to drink, which really surprised me. I’m not a huge fan of most Scotch, but this Glenmorangie The Original 10 Year is a treat. The flavor opens with sweet and malt that slowly transition into a touch of smoke that blends with sweet fruit and maltiness for a smooth ending.
The Score – Glenmorangie The Original 10 Year
This bottle is one of those rare bottles of Scotch that I enjoy. I’m not a fan of smoke. Glenmorangie The Original 10 Year scores a very respectable 82/100.
Light yellow and straw.

- Intoxicating nose. I could breathe in this floral, slightly sweet dram all day long.
- Smooth and well rounded sip that ends with malt, sweet, and just a hint of smoke.
- If you love oily, smoky Scotch, you will find this too light for your taste.
