    Re: Glenmorangie 10? Just another Glen?

    Squire's first post is an excellent overview of the Glemorangie as whole to of which I really can't add much.I do very much so agree that the Glen 10 is just a great straight forward pour on the drier lighter end and a great example of their house style with out all the gimmicks.The 10 is a crisp well rounded profile at a very approachable price a great malt for beginners and one I always get people to try when first entering this hobby and it's always well received.

    Re: Glenmorangie 10? Just another Glen?

    I only ask because I'm sure there is a Ralfy vlog where he mentions Caol Ila as the main malt in JW. I would guess it's highly possible that JW being a blend, that things do very in the process depending on availability of certain malts. But, it's my understanding that most of the distilleries produce whisky for the blend market and sell a limited quantity as SM. So, if that is the case, why would Caol Ila be in short supply to JW?

    Yeah, I think you guys have talked me into trying it.

    It's affordable too, so I might just pick one up today.

    Glenmorangie 10? Just another Glen?

    Not shilling for any one store, but you can try the core Glenmorangie line via minis like this one:

    Re: Glenmorangie 10? Just another Glen?

    Ralfy is an entertaining fellow who sometimes films a review while subsumed by drink. He may be knowledgeable about some current movements in the trade but I don't think he claims to be an historian on the subject.

    Neither am I for that matter, interested amateur at best. I'm under the impression that post WW2 Walker whiskys used Talisker as a key note constituent of their blends. Indeed, up into the 1980s Walker print ads emphasized their brands contained up to 40 single malts in the blend and prior to the 1986 merger that eventually became Diageo the Walker brand and Talisker were owned by one group while Caol Ila was owned by another. Brands used malt whisky from their own distillerys then and now that Diageo owns a bunch they can pick and choose depending on circumstances of the time. Truth is how many of us can tell if the Islay note in a blend is Ardberg or Talisker, Caol Ila or Lagavulin for that matter. I can't but I'll sure buy a drink for anyone who can.

    I know, I know, Ardberg isn't owned by Diageo, just like the sound of the name and it is exemplar of the Islay style.

    It's sitting in the pantry now, waiting to be opened. Beautiful bottle, in my opinion.

    I just saw some of those loose. I may pick up a handful and try them all.
