Origine 10 Year: Whisk(e)y Wednesday presented by The Cove

Origine 10 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Origine 10 Year
Whisk(e)y Wednesday gets back to Scotch with Origine, a single Islay malt that has been aged 10 years.  The Scotch is smoky and peaty and likened to a "poor man's Talisker."  The nose is rather neat with campfire aromas very present.  A little sea salt mixes in with the peat on the palate with hints of leather, pepper, and honey.  The finish comes back to the fire and smoke but in a non-aggressive way.  Certainly a nice Scotch to add to a collection at an affordable price, but nothing that will tremendously impress your friends become one of your automatic favorites.

74.5 Average Score


Whisk(e)y Wednesday is a blog post series on Bite and Booze presented by The Cove. Check out The Cove in Baton Rouge, LA to browse their selection of over 200 whiskeys (including bourbons) and 325+ Scotch whiskys. Whisk(e)y Wednesday is created and rated by the hosts of Raise a Glass. Scores are marked for Nose, Taste, Finish, and Balance and Complexity using our own propriatary scoring system. Marks are then added and averaged, leaving us with a final score out of a 100 point scale. Our scale should be looked at on the full range of 0-100 rather than an academic range where 70 is passing and anything less is failing. A 50 should be considered a very mediocre whisk(e)y while anything below 10 is absolute horse piss and anything above 90 is rather extraordinary.
