This particular whisky has been aged in first- and second-fill ex-bourbon casks.

Glenmorangie The Original 10 Year, 43% ABV
Single malt Scotch whisky (Highland)
Price range, 750 mL: $29 at Total Wine in Arizona, up to $40 elsewhere
Nose: Nice, deep toastiness and fruit.
Palate: Light fruit mingled with a backbone of wood and toasted malt. Creamy. A bit of milk chocolate develops.
Finish: A bouquet of fruit all the way down: peaches, plums, oranges, red apples, raisins. Outstanding.
Rating (of 100): 92. This is probably the best value single malt available (at $29). It's an easy drinker that is accessible for a novice and still satisfyingly complex for a whisky veteran.
