Glenmorangie 10 Years is one of the best-selling single malts in Scotland and is now available in a wide variety of editions, such as the giraffe edition. This is supposed to stand for the particularly high stills of the distillery located in the Highlands.

See

The malt was matured in first and refill bourbon casks, which Glenmorangie fills no more than twice. The soft character of the single malt whisky is supported by the 8-metre-high stills.

Smell

Vanilla, fruity, fresh. Very summery and soft, we smell light fruits, a little nut. A very clear vanilla note hovers over everything. A very clear aroma profile that is pursued here.
"You know what this reminds me of? Jam." / "No, it's clearly jelly to me!"
So much for that.

Taste

The taste is also quite clearly defined. We think of almonds, apricot, cotton candy. Sweetish malty and very soft, mild flavors make us think of summer.

Finish

Medium length says goodbye to a slight oakiness in combination with white wine.

Conclusion

Unsurprisingly, we have one of the best-selling Scotch whiskies in the glass. A well-defined aroma profile makes the whiskey very accessible. The lightness and elegant wood note in the finish are also remarkable. The classic should not be missing in any whiskey collection, especially at a price of just under 35 euros.
