Rating of article "Glenmorangie 10Y The Original - 40% - 0.7l"

Nosing:
The scent of citrus and ripening peaches is softened by the aroma of vanilla.
Taste:
First, vanilla is detected on the tongue before it ripples along the palate bringing a burst of flowery fruitiness.
Finish:
About a minute after tasting, you are left with a clean and salving aftertaste with hints of orange and peach.

Light, accessible and rather undemanding - that's probably the best way to describe Glenmorangie's 10-year-old entry-level Single Malt. Matured exclusively in ex-bourbon casks, the nose is fresh and clean with unripe, rather sour fruits (green apples and grapes), vanilla cream and honey. With water, some herbal/minty notes start to emerge. On the palate, it arrives spirity and aromatic with citrus fruits, pears and nutmeg, turning more dry and bitter in the development. The finish is medium length, nutty and mildly spicy. Solid average - but nothing special.

Nosing: Fruit Apple Banana Floral
Fruity and delicate. Citrus, apple, banana aromas. There's a floral component that I can't properly identify

Taste: MaltVanilla Fruit Honey
Fresh and approachable, the fruit is a lot less well defined than the nose. Vanilla and malty sweetness.

Finish: Fruit Pepper Oak Vanilla
Long and fruity, some white pepper, develops into vanilla oakiness.

Comment:
I'd never tried this malt before and I spotted it in a half bottle format at the local store so I thought I'd give it a try. Definitely an approachable malt, I think the nose is where it shines, but I can't really fault the rest of it. I normally prefer a slightly more intense flavour so I'd be interested to see how it would be at higher ABV, but other than that it was certainly worth trying.
