  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    One of the finest and most complex young whiskies out there. Goes to show what the industry is capable of if they try hard enough. A real masterpiece given the average price.
    • Nose
      Citrus, Flowers, Caramel (the eating kind not the colourant), stewed pears, fresh cut grass, bit of wood hanging out in a dark corner at the back trying not to be noticed.
    • Taste
      Spicy, very fruity - lots of citrus (might be the name reminding me of oranges playing up there), pears, nutmeg/cinnamon, vanilla.  
    • Finish
      Nice rolling finish with the woody notes that were hanging out in the back finally coming out to play, lingers but only briefly.

    Sweet and fruity, with a noticeable taste of milk chocolate. Lemon peel and oak in the finish.

      7 // 7

      Fresh fruit, fresh malt, very vernal. Mouthwatering. // Sweeter, Scotchier.
    • Taste
      70 70
      7 // 7

      Tastes a bit younger than 10, with a lot of vanilla and floral notes. Apple. Soft and pleasant. // Even more grain and vanilla. Still great.
    • Finish

      6 // 6.5

      Weakest component, but nothing amiss. Just unremarkable and brief. // More assertive, interestingly.

  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.

    • Nose
      Very distinctive, clean, oaky peatiness. This character is in the background throughout.
    • Taste
      Flowery. Fudgy. Toffeeish. Nutty. Very soft, strained spiciness. Then toasty and peaty.
    • Finish
      Firm, clean (almost crisp), peatiness. Then long, very soft, spicy and remarkably warming.

  16. Alex did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "The taste characteristics from the first-fill bourbon casks that permeates the majority of the aged spirit, coupled with the increased proportion of our `designer casks` (made from slow growth, air-dried American oak from the Ozark Mountains of Missouri), results in a delicious spirit that enhances the relaxed and convivial mood of the group by igniting the senses. The Original is, quite simply, the most delicate and deliciously complex single malt whisky in the world." - Distillery
