Glenmorangie 10 year old, the Original was pretty straight shooting like Lemonade Joe in the movie. Straight forward but bit incoherent.

Glenmorangie 10 yrs Original is definitely 'the lemonade whisky' and it suits well for summer evenings but it's nothing special.

Nose: Like a very mellow fruity fragrance. Watery lemonade with citrus and floral notes.

Taste. The floral effect is massive with some caramel sweetness and stingy lemony feel.

Finish: Spicy and minty, sharp and fruity as well.

Balance: Very light start and rough end, but with a nice taste in the middle. A bit of scramble of light and stingy notes, yet a decent whisky.

This is probably an old version of the Glenmorangie 10 so I Made my review for the one, that has the correct picture. Does anyone know if they've updated their product or why there's two kinds of Glenmorangie 10 Year old Original's @Connosr?

Well said. I'm more of a fan of this than you seem to be. It's definitely not something I drink for it's richness or complexity. But I drink this a lot because where I live it's about $17. Also, I see it as the quintessential light sipper. When I'm not feeling analytical, and I want something light, pleasant, and refreshing, this is my go-to single malt. Accessible and charming with a sweet citrussy character.

I'm curious about the difference between the 'Original' and the 10 yr old too. They taste the same to me, but I only tried the 10 yr old once. At the time it tasted identical. Either they have 2 bottlings for the same product or I missed some subtle differences...

I made some research and according to Master of Malt, the bottle and packaging have been updated since the LVMH group takeover. Content should be the same. Master of Malt: "A definite collectible!"
