Now this isn't how I remember the Glenmo nose, yet it took a long time to get under the odour to sense the honeyed notes. The Palate was sweet and the finish was medium long with initial notes of honey followed by a spicy fire and finishing off with a warmth coursing down the body. All things I've come to expect from this Glenmorangie.
Has anyone else noticed this in the "new" Glenmo 10? It makes me leery of purchasing a bottle when my last bottle is finished.
Yeah it was very disconcerting I can assure you. I really had to work at getting around that initial "bouquet". Once I was able to get into sampling it was not in the Palate but still there in the nose. I should pick up a bottle and experiment with adding water if the scent is still there. Hopefully it was just a "one-off" experience.
None of the other whiskies that evening were out of the ordinary, thankfully.
I tried the "new" Ten right after the bottle change and it was still the same great aroma. The unopened bottle I have now is from the gift pack with the crystal tumblers in that same time frame. I'm interested in what the current bottles on the market may be like. The most recent Glenmo I had open was the Astar and even at C/S it was a nice sweet/spice balance especially after a couple months.
This was a newly opened bottle and I was one of the only ones to get "nail polish" in the nose while another fellow got a slight soapy taste. Seeing as I've got a decent selection of Glenmo in the Lair I may sit down and do a vertical this weekend to see what there is to see. I'll probably have to pick up a bottle of the "new" 10 as well to see if it was actual, my imagination or an isolated anosmiatic occurrence!
On a side note, I've really got to get around to listing my opened and closed bottles. I've noticed lately that I've got a few duplicates!
