Nose: malty/fruity start with tangerine, ripe gooseberry, lots of pear and honey. Vanilla cream. Some caramel. There’s a buttery side to it that I don’t like too much, but overall not bad.

Mouth: weak delivery. Again fruity. Apples, pears, oranges, but with less appealing flowery, even perfumy hints as well (geranium?). Slightly spicy and zesty. Almond. Dry oak.

Finish: short but quite warm, with apple and nutmeg.

I must admit to quite liking this one, but every time I look at the bottle, I wish I had bought the Astar...

Glenmorangie 10 was the first single malt I tried, due to the recommendation from the ScotchChix website. It still remains one of my alltime favorite lighter, non-smoky malts.

It has its place of course, and you can't be really disappointed with such a low price. On the other hand, I would save for the Astar or the Nectar d'Or.

I'm quite fond of this whisky too. Its not earth shattering but it has subtle depths, it's a delicate dram and sometimes you want something a little less in your face. Personally I'd have given it a higher score. Having said that I haven't tried the Astar... yet!

A lot better than most people give it credit for... Main problem is I often seem to make up for its "smooth" character by pouring bigger glasses...

My Orig appears to be evaporating as well. I also have the Nectar, which I sampled, along with the Orig about a month ago. Yes, the Nectar is a fabulous, luxurious keeper ... maybe analogous to the yummy icing on carrot cake, whereas the Orig might be like the delicious cake part. Both necessary.
