    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

      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

      oak; spices more dominant; hints of chocolate; sweetness in the backround; (bitter) friuts; hints of coffee; nuts; surprisingly intense and long finish

  6. 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.

    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.
