I voted the 10. It's very good, straightforward, and what a standard whisky should be. I do also like the Madeira and Burgundy wood finishes as well.

I would have preferred "Other" as an option in the poll.

The poll lists various standard Gelnmorangies, but for me, the "Cotes de Beaune" is the nicest one I have tried.

I have also tried the two versions of "Sauternes Wood Finish" - the 15 year old and the much more expensive 21 year old in the wooden box.
I found the 15 year old to be the better of the two as the 21 year old was extremely dry and acidic.

A toss-up between standard and Portwood...

just so happens i shared the end of a bottle of Portwood on Wed. I was reminded of why I used to love this, even before I really came to appreciate the standard. so I voted for it. Lo and behold, i see the two neck and neck leading the poll!

I think that's as it should be!

It's been a long time but I had a set of 5 miniatures about 10 years ago with an 10, 18, Port, Sherry and Madeira wood finishes. It was the first time I had encountered different wood finishes and it was this set that got me interested. I seem to remember the Madeira finish being my favourite. I still have the box and the bottles but surprisingly none of the whisky...

theres a glenmorangie for every budget, my personal fav is the 1975 cote de nuits, althoguh i wouldn drink it now due to the large price o it now, and i wouldnt even open the one in my collection.

but one i would get again if i seen it an id say is my 2nd fav is the glenmorangie burr oak reserve. cask strength and only £60.

personally i prefer cask strength bottles, as when you think about it, your getting efectavly a bottle and a half of whisky

I voted for the 15. It behaves like a 25 year old and in my opinion it is one of the best value whiskies on offer.

The 10 is one of the all time classics.

The four listed wood finishes are sort of okay but I won't be buying any more apart from an occasional Port Wood which is the best of the bunch in my opinion. I would drink that as an occasional alternative to the 10 but the rest, no thanks.

The Port is excellent - as is the Rum, but for the true spirit of the sixteen, it is hard to get past the 10yo. :D

Same here, as I am totally not fond of the above mentioned Morangies....

My favourite (yet affordable) Glenmorangie is the Glenmorangie Artisan Cask OB 46,0%
Far better than the others....

I used to like the "Traditional 100 Proof" as well but nowadays I find that one a tad too malty.

Of the ones listed above, I would vote for the Port Wood. Of all the Glenmorangie bottles I have had I think the Fino Sherry was the best.

Voted for the Port finish. Haven´t tried more than 4 Glenmorangies though. I do have a untasted "Traditional" in the wardrobe hidden away from my better half.

Portwood $ comparison

Postby Muskrat Portage » Sat Jan 06, 2007 7:34 pm

So, $40,00 at Tescos', while it's $57.95 at the LCBO. (Sigh) I really do live in the wrong side of the pond.

Given the option, I'd have voted for the Margaux Finish. From the options available, I selected Madeira, but only because it's been the most consistent of the regular finishes. The Port, Sherry, and Burgundy have jumped around a lot in consistency, from good to average to ordinary.

Cheers,

I would have selected Cellar 13 but not being an option I chose the Port finish.

Favourite? That would be the Cellar 13.

But it's not an option, thus no vote.... :(

Glenmorangie holds a special place in my heart. There were many years where that was all I drank. And while I never got into the high end stuff they put out I have tried all the options on your list.

So while I think the 10yo is the best bang for your buck and the best introduction to Glenmorangie as a distillery, my favorite is the 15yo. Sure, there was a time when I thought the Portwood was the stuff, then the Sherry, but I came to realize that everything I liked about Glenmorangie was going on in the 15yo plus it had that extra spicy kick I love.

Hear, hear :)

The poll stops short of the next price bracket which takes in the Artisan Cask, Cellar 13 and the 18yo, so I voted on what we were presented with.

I think the current Glenmorangie 15yo offers the same "bang for your buck" as the 10yo, unlike the "cheap" finishes which don't improve on the 10yo, they just offer something different.

For a few months I think I'll be alternating between Glenmorangie 10 and 15 with an occasional treat thrown in....

That's well said Nock, we have limited access to the G15 but have plenty of G10 which I really appreciate.

So, is it worth having Bruce track down a couple of Artisan casks for me? They've been discontinued at the LCBO and are at a price point of $99.00 (Euros 65.4485).

Absolutely! If you like fruity and fresh whisky with almoust bourbonlike style, there's your whisky. Pears and apples.

The whisky was matured in barrels that have previously held only Jack Daniels for four years and then were shipped to Scotland without being dismantled for maximum bourbon impact. Artisan Cask was supposed to mature for ten years, but was considered ready after 9 yrs. It's a unchillfiltered bottling at 46%.

Thank you, I'll chat up Bruce today and see if he can acquire a couple for us. Sounds like a whisky I could definitely go for!
