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.

    Smooth, doesn't let you down, is sweet and balanced. It's amazing that among single malts, even the less expensive are outstanding. Glenmorangie has great value for its price, and is never a disappointing scotch to have a dram of. A great scotch for beginners and veteran scotch drinkers alike.

    Very easy drinking and there is a lot to like about it, especially if like me you are relatively new to whisky. Very enjoyable.

    There are plenty of whisky snobs out there who talk rubbish. The bottom line is that if you like it, then it is great whisky. I don’t care for smokiness or peatiness as it tastes like TCP to me, but I recognise that others think differently and that is fine. I like smooth whiskies and this is an excellent and affordable example. I saw a review once that suggested MacCallan Gold was for people who don’t like whisky. These are the words of an idiot. Enjoy what you enjoy and I really enjoy this.

    This is a very uncomplicated whisky but it is nicely scented and a nice color. the more Glenmorangie's I drink just like this one they are all good!

    This whisky has an aroma of a lemon running through a mangrove at midday on Summer solstice whilst juggling mangoes which are in turn juggling mini bananas, which are in turn juggling peaches. The finish is an orange in a sports car backing down the M1 shouting 'tally ho' with unicorns in the rear seat completing a rubik's cube with its rear hooves. On the palate it is a 1930's jazz band playing 'Rhapsody in Blue' backwards whilst doing the can can trying not to step on the fluffy bunnies that frolic around their feet.

    This is a great whisky to start on in my opinion. It smells heavenly and goes down easily. A lovely whisky to buy, and if it's ever on sale pick up a couple.

    (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.

    Citrus punch on the nose with a very malty palate, like digestive biscuits! Smooooooooth smooth finish. Great all round refreshing classic. Could drink anytime.
