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.

    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.

    Far from a stand out whisky, although it's not a poor drink by any means. Missing all the flavour of smoke and peat, I think I'll go back to islay bottles

    Aroma: A hint of vanilla makes the aroma something relaxing.... Amazing Palate you almost don't want it to end with an amazing finish. This is absolutely the whisky of choice for an immortal Highlander! There can be only one! This is definitely one of the best whiskeys I have ever tasted!

    Smooth single malt scotch. I was the taster at one of the scotch party and there were around 28 scotch and this one came out to be truly finest matured smooth spirit.

    It is pleasing and very quaffable however it lacks intrigue, there's nothing that grabs you. Good for a prezzie, there's better if you're buying for yourself.

    Pleasant enough with a cube of ice. Sweet, juicy, a little bit of perfectly integrated oak. Not bad at all. Maybe a bit dry is all.

    I wasn't sure what to think when I opened this. I was expecting to be punched in the face with peat and burn. The aroma is inviting. The taste is sweet but gentle enough to not make this like a fruity mix drink. The color is pleasing. This is a great alcohol for an astounding price that can easily be added to any party you visit or kept at home for when you need something on the rocks after a long day.

    In my opinion this is the best whisky of this style. Malty mixed with toffee, fruit and a delicious nuttiness on the finish. For many people Glenlivet and Glenfiddich are their introduction to songs malt scotch whisky. They were my first single malts after years of drinking blends, Irish whiskey and bourbon. It should be this. I like all styles of single malt whisky. This is my favorite amongst the lighter malty whiskies. Anyone who favors light whiskies who haven't tried this need to.
