WhiskyCritic Review: Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old


Share on Pinterest


Four years ago, WhiskyCritic reviewed Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old and we return to the well because there is a comfort in the Old Reliable – it’s not spectacular or unique in any kind of a flamboyant way – it’s just good whisky. Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old fits this bill perfectly.

I had the pleasure to enjoy some Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old recently and the first element to notice is the smoothness. New whisky drinkers will be particularly pleased with this element as it gives them a good first impression separate from what they may be envisioning of the stereotypical, grizzled old-school whisky drinker of yore. The stereotypical vision generally indicates that you must possess stones of haggis to even attempt drinking a single malt whisky, much less be able to pass judgment over what has just flowed past your lips.

This is not the case with Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old where the whisky first caresses your nose, then your tongue and finally, your soul. I had it neat and the Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old did not disappoint. The Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old brings distinct fruity and vanilla notes to the table, after that, it is entirely up to the personal taste buds of the whisky-enjoyer to determine the subtle nuances detected elsewhere as usually brought out by temperature alterations. Whatever the taste buds determine for you personally, it is generally going to be good for Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old. Glenmorangie is not flashy but it is perfect for what it is – a good overall smooth whisky that nearly anybody can enjoy.

A bottle of Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old will generally run you around $50 in the good old US of A.

WhiskyCritic Rating for Glenmorangie 10-Year-Old – 88
