Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie The Original
13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.23 points
- 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
- 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.
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.
Spicy, very fruity - lots of citrus (might be the name reminding me of oranges playing up there), pears, nutmeg/cinnamon, vanilla.
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.
Very distinctive, clean, oaky peatiness. This character is in the background throughout.
Flowery. Fudgy. Toffeeish. Nutty. Very soft, strained spiciness. Then toasty and peaty.
Firm, clean (almost crisp), peatiness. Then long, very soft, spicy and remarkably warming.
- A classic whisky from speyside with floral flavours.
