Customer Rating
The 'original' sets a high standard for Highland whisky, and has gone from strength to strength since its slightly controversial packaging redesign a few years ago. Medium-bodied and gently warming, with pleasant spicy notes.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Soft, clean and refreshing: lemon sherbert and apricots, with honeyed fruit and a touch of toffee and vanilla. Gentle and satisfying.

    Palate: A little weightier on the palate, with honey and malt, banana bread and subtle sweet spices. Clean and well balanced.

    Finish: The honeyed fruit fades softly, and the finish is whistle-clean.

    Comment: A textbook whisky, this – well made, beautifully balanced, delicate but still flavoursome.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Aroma: Imagine yourself in an Italian garden surrounded with mandarin, lemon, apple, pear and peach trees, their fruit ripening in the sun. Add to this the scent of vanilla ice cream, then enjoy the herbal aromas of geranium and wild mint growing nearby.

    Add water to The Original and you wander into a flower garden with lemony bergamot, apricot and mandarin. Floral notes of geranium, sweet honeysuckle and piquant narcissus mix with mint and the herbal essence of eucalyptus, nutmeg and ginger.

    Taste: Savour the fruits of the Italian garden as creamy vanilla slips like liquid silk over the tongue as peaches and cream, mandarins and lemons effervesce in the mouth.

    Aromatic essences of fennel and nutmeg tantalise with crumbly almond and coconut that gives way to a nectar that envelops all the fruit, spice and nut flavours in a honeyed caress.

    Finish: The charming sweetness of delicious juices is left on the tongue.

    (Disclaimer: I've only been drinking Scotch for a year now, so my palate is as about as refined as a monster truck show. )This has to be the most gentle whiskey ever made! On the nose I get honeysuckle, white grape, mandarin orange in syrup, and Chanel No. 5. On the taste...I get a creamy Oak with a touch of pears... If you are looking for a scotch that kicks you in the teeth with each dram, look elsewhere. This dram is as soft as a mothers hug.

    I have but three words for this: finish, finish and finish! If judging a number of brands by finish alone, this one is near the top!

    Very tasty. A floral and fruity taste with mild smokiness. An all around great flavor and I like the spicy finish.

    Just started out drinking whisky, my usual drink of choice is rum, started of with Grants, teachers and a few other blended brands, I was abit sceptical about trying a single malt as I thought I would still prefer blended, boy was I wrong, I love this sweet, fruity golden water, for me the finish is the best part.

    Wonderful Whiskey. I'm a Scotch guy gone coganac. Bought this for my wife. Sweet, smooth with tones of vanilla and honey. Reminds me of a developed Remy. These guys are unbelievably dedicated to their craft.

    Being from Kentucky I'm more accustomed to my native Bourbon whiskey. Frankly I wanted to branch out a little. Honestly I find this scotch amazing. The many different flavors I experience when drinking this to my untrained palate. Are a hint a vanilla, citrus maybe a nutty flavor. Not sure. But one thing is sure I love it!

    Creamy sweet style with floral, coffee and nutty undertones..complex. Very little if peat and very ltd smoke. Nice if you enjoy sweet whiskey as I did a few years ago as this is a better one not to be wasted as a mixer. But having now abandoned all borbon I'm now finding my palate is now doing the same for sweeter styles of whiskey. This isn't dry or peated enough for me now so will be last bottle for some time. My go to now is laphroig 10 year, which ironically is sweeter than in the past but still 10/10 on the dry scale of whiskey. This one is a must buy for those who like highland and speyside malts and thoroughly recommended.
