What can I say about the Glenmorangie 10yo which hasn’t been said already? Probably nothing, so here’s a quote from the Whisky Bible by Jim Murray “overall this remains one of the great single malts: a whisky of uncompromising aesthetic beauty from the first enigmatic whiff to the last teasing and tantalising gulp. Complexity at its most complex.” He also says of the finish “amazingly long for such a light dram”. His score of 94/100 classifies this whisky in the bracket of “superstar whisky that gives us all a reason to live”.

Glenmorangie distillery was founded in 1843 on the site of a brewery that had existed since 1738. Glenmorangie’s stills are the tallest in Scotland standing 17 feet high. Tours of the distillery cost £5 and are available all year round except at Christmas. Apparently the stills alone are worth the visit but you also get a dram as part of the cost. For those interested, have a look at the Glenmorangie website here.
