  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    A very simple single malt without corners and edges - the entry into the Glenmorangie range;
    • Nose
      fruity (peach, tangerines, pears), mild, gentle;
    • Taste
      on arrival sweet and mild, then clear alcohol note, some oak; monotonous and one-dimensional;
    • Finish
      medium-long, fruity and sweet;

  2. Glenjasper scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A good single malt for every day, from which you can drink two or three times. Compliant beginner whisky without corners and edges at a fair price.

      Unfortunately, not much is left. Some vanilla, caramel and green fruit in the background

  5. karloff scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    This has hardly changed at all down the years. Not as good as when I first tasted it but it was one of the very first one's. My palate has changed but I don't think the standard has dropped significantly. 
    • Nose
      Toffee, pear, vanilla, oak, honey, Kiwi fruit , pepper and almonds. This is the nose i remember, pleasant and refreshing. 
    • Taste
      You can really taste the oak in this. It is also a bit dry but this works with the oak very well. Sweet and grassy with a sprinkle of that white pepper. There is also some sort of plastic in there, it's the only downside but it doesn't effect it too much. 
    • Finish
      A medium chalky finish with candy, marshmallow and spice.
