  1. Official tasting note

    X By Glenmorangie is made for mixing. It was designed with top bartenders from all over the world and specifically created as a single malt for mixers and cocktails matured in bourbon barrels & smoked American oak casks. It’s said to have a richer and sweeter taste and it’s bottled at a low 40% ABV.

    Nice soft whisky good to mix

  3. Wienter65 scored this whisky 74 points Newbie

    Unfortunately a very simple whisky that has little to offer besides orange notes and sweetness. Glenmorangie can definitely do better than that.

  5. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Simple and empty enough whisky, but very "drinkable". No worse than many samples without age indication, and one can feel the Glenmorangie pedigree in it.
    • Nose
      Mainly composed of pleasant malt flavors (croissant, white bread baguette). Deeper - pear and young bark.
    • Taste
      Sweet pastries, vanilla, cinnamon, green apple.
    • Finish
      Short, malty dominant, fruity sweetness, spices and tannins.

  8. M134481 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    It is not a very deep whisky, but it is also meant to be mixed with. The taste is mainly orange. He certainly isn't dirty, just don't expect a distinct single malt.

    Surprisingly great just to drink neat - no cocktail needed! I think I might even prefer this to their already classic and delicious “Original”. Lots of zesty orange notes on the nose and first sip. Chocolate and ginger too. A really great, easy drinking malt whisky :-)
