  1. WhiskymagCZ scored this whisky 85 points Member Junior

    Well balanced scotch indeed.
    • Nose
      Soooo citric, floral and little bit fragnant nose.
    • Taste
      Fresh taste of vanilla change 

      gradually changes to herbs.
    • Finish
      Clearly wax.

  2. Koning scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    A pretty aromatic and fruity highlander. Improves with water, despite the low strength.
    • Nose
      Quite aromatic. Fruity (peach, apple and citrus fruits), sweet vanilla, some flowers and a bit perfumy, albeit accompanied by a fresh note of mint and washed clothes.
    • Taste
      Creamy vanilla with a sharp edge (pepper,alcohol), citrus fruits and peaches, garden herbs (parsley,rosemary,oregano) and a bit of honey
      .
    • Finish
      Wood spice, walnut, sweet vanilla. Fresh citrus fruits and a slighly waxy mouth feel
      .

    overall a very smooth, mellow and mature single malt that is easy to drink and only show's weakness on th palate

      very delicate; slight sweetness; citrus notes; lemon; lime; tangerine; apples; pears; peach; dried fruits in the backround; slight spices; hints of oak; overall a good, complex and mellow nose
    • Taste
      very mild/mellow; sweet barley; slight vanilla; (dryed) fruits; nuts; after some time more exotic flavors like coconut; very smooth and mellow although the lack of %vol is noticable
    • Finish
      oak; spices more dominant; hints of chocolate; sweetness in the backround; (bitter) friuts; hints of coffee; nuts; surprisingly intense and long finish

  9. Igor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    My previous experience with The Original 700 ml was somewhat different as compared to a newer 1 L. The first one was quite good in general, still not as good as was the content of 1 L bottle really. Batches do matter I suppose.
    • Nose
      Ripe apples are in front with tangerines, sweet orange, peach. Leave out fruity components and you've got freshly shaved wood, vanillin, citric acid. It's crumbly, close to lemon wafers, vin blanc (sec), a little sour, white grapes, however sweetens onward - flabby like gelatin now. Apple-/pineapple juice, lemon jelly, lemony lollipop, boiled sweets.
    • Taste
      Some may say delicate, I'd rather call it thin or light. It is delusive lightness though. To me it's similar to triple-distilled lowland style in some way, maintaining on the other hand plenty of pungency, robustness. Sucrose, candied violet/-rose petals, praline, fruit syrup, honey-lemon throat lozenge. Becoming sweeter in the last phase: lollipop again?, crème caramel, banana cream fudge and just a faint trace of salt.
    • Finish
      Cereal grain (malted barley), has got some creaminess to it, nearly custardy, condiment heat, cloves, pepper, punch (drink), zest, aniseed, white oak, maybe a hint of roasted chestnut, citronella oil?, citron.

  10. drkrylov scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    The original expression of our elegant, floral spirit and the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. A ten-year-old single malt, Glenmorangie Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland`s tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks.
