This bottle of Glenmorangie 10 Original was a Christmas gift from my brother-in-law who blindly selected this brand only because he knew I was getting into Scotch. Little did he know that G10-O was on my initial list of the first 10 whisky expressions I wanted in my cabinet. I got lucky as this is no dog.

*Tasted in a 12 oz. snifter, neat, hand warmed and pondered over for about 30 minutes.

Nose: Fruity ripe nose with vanilla cream steeped in subtle oak, sweet syrup.

Palate: Grapefruit sprinkled with light sugar, some orange, malty, smooth and skinny feel on the taste buds.

Finish: The fruit carries thru with soft oak notes hanging around a slight pepper burn that slowly migrates into the medium finish in fruit.

Balance: A soft whisky, maybe more suited for a warm summer night but it won't be turned away during a cold winter night by the fireplace.

This is not necessarily a bottle that will be in the front of the cabinet. In fact, it's one of those bottles that tends to be crowed out by my favorite peated malts, Bourbon's and other whisk(e)y's. But eventually I notice it's tall neck in the crowd and rediscover this sleeper of a dram.
