This was my first try of any of the Glenmorangie range after having read up on it. This is the second best selling whisky of Scotland, so it must be d(r)amn good, right?
I had the 10 year old from before the overhaul in which it suddenly became the 'Original'.
The nose is very light with some oak and honey, but not complex in the least.
It's body is very oily, almost sirupy. It clings to the glass unlike I've ever seen with whisky.
On the palate it's almost buttery. There is quite some vanilla in there and some fudge. A light hint of peat as well, that makes it burn a little in the back of the throat.
I felt the finish was rather short with loads of spice and even a little orange in the back.
I'm sure I need to try it again, because this one left me in doubt. I was very keen on trying the Signet and Sonalta PX, but now I'm not so sure.
