    Re: Glenmorangie 10? Just another Glen?

    Just had a little taste. This is a Highland scotch. Here we go:

    Pale straw colored --
    Medium body --
    Nose is light, mostly just alcohol with a little white cake (like birthday cake) --
    Taste is sweet, yet dry at the same time, a lot of citrus, vanilla, oak, but no peatsmoke --
    Finish is short and sweet. Not much lingers on the tongue.

    I would say this is an excellent everyday type of SMS, but not a "special occasion" scotch. A good intro into the single malt world scotch.

    It's very good, better than most blends. The dominant flavor is citrus, sort of orangy-lemony flavors rolling around.

    My next one will have to be a smoky Islay variety I think.

    It occurs to me that this would go very well with an orange-chocolate dessert of some kind, like a mousse or cheesecake.

    It's a bit like Cointreau.

    A combination of your choice of colored text and squire's probable choice ( and mine ) of a darker theme means that we see grey text on dark grey background which equals hard to see/read.

    Sorry, I had actually written that somewhere else and copy and pasted it here, so maybe that explains the off color.

    Strange that on my screen it looks exactly the same as all the other posts here.

    Basically what I wrote was that the dominant flavors are citrus, mostly orange and lemon, and it's very light and refreshing, almost like fortified white wine, if you add ice to it. There is some bourbon barrel oak in it too.

    The finish is very short, and the nose is pure alcohol and vanilla cake.

    Alden, did you get any marshmallow in it? I've only had it once, at the end of a party, so I wasn't paying too much attention, but I remember that I liked it and that it had some yummy marshmallow notes.

    I did make the mistake of buying their Quinta Ruban. Boring, so, so, boring.

    It just seems incongruous to me that Port would work with the Glenmorangie flavor profile, but to each his own as the man said when he kissed the cow.
