I can't resist buying a bottle of whisky for christmas, I'm not a big whisky drinker but do love a good malt. Glenmorangie is one of my favorites, Dalwhinnie is the other. They are both expensive but Glenmorangie is the cheapest, so whilst at Safeways last night I bought a little 35cl bottle for 9.99p. You can buy the 70cl botttle for 19.99p.
I never used to drink whisky after having a rough night years ago on Bells it put me off the taste, or so I thought. Then one night I was introduced to Glenmorangie, I can honestly say there is no comparison to cheap whisky, this one stands out on its own.
The whisky is a light amber colour and when you swish it around in your glass, you can watch how it leaves a thin film of whisky around your glass before it falls back down to the bottom. The smell is loverly and has a subtle scent of barley. I have been told that the best way to taste a whisky is to take a sip and put it under your tongue. This then lets the warm flavour evapourate in your mouth and seep into your taste buds.
The result is the full flavour of the whisky being rolled around your mouth and down your throat to leave the subtle aftertaste of Glenmorangie in your mouth. A taste which is light on the palate but warming to the spirit.
The bottles come in red and gold tubes, with a red metal lid. There is a nice discription about how Glenmorangie is made and has been distilled since 1700. It tells you about how the whisky is stored and matured, if you want to know more you'll have to buy some. I can recommend it and am sure you won't be dissapointed.
This whisky can be enjoyed on it's own, or on the rocks. I also like it in a hot coffee, curled up by the fire late at night with my partner. It relaxes and chills you out, sets the mood for good conversation and an enjoyable night in on a winter night.
This whisky is a ten year old scotish malt, well worth ever penny. Merry christmas to you all xx
