Glenmorangie 10 year old is the flagship bottle of the Glenmorangie range. It is an elegant, floral and spirited 10 year old single malt. The 10 year old is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland’s tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks.
It is here that they are matured for 10 years in a range of ex-bourbon casks, such as the famous slow-grown and air-dried ‘designer casks’ from Missouri. These designer casks are used to develop the raw spirit to achieve a perfect balance between sweetness and complexity. This results in a mature spirit that is soft, mellow and creamy.
The colour of the 10 year old is a pale lemony gold and the aroma gives a scent of citrus and ripening peaches that is softened by the fragrance of vanilla. On the palate you can immediately detect vanilla on the tongue before it ripples along the mouth bringing a burst of flowery fruitiness which is then followed by the finish which hits about a minute after tasting. The Finish leaves you with a clean and salving aftertaste with hints of orange and peach, the perfect end to a succulent 10 year old.
The Glenmorangie 10 year old has won a number of awards with its most recent being a Double Gold for Best Single Malt at the San Francisco world spirit championship.
