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.

    I can finally affordably drink my problems away, after another depressing day while look somewhat classy. It's hard to stop drinking this hell water

    This is a delicious whisky. It is a great value and happens to be better than any whisky of this style, most of which cost much more

    While not the very best malt whisky, it's very good, straight (I like the bite), or with just a little water (my wife doesn't). Nicely balanced, good tastes come through, and a lovely finish. There's none better, or even as good, at that price. Our everyday whisky.

    I just purchased a bottle of the glenmorangie 10 year original and I can't wait to burst it open, but just out of interest, do these bottles increase in value much if I was to keep it sealed. (10/years or so) sorry if I offend anybody with silly questions

    This is the whisky which navigated me away from peat in favor of great balance. Fantastic bright notes, not-overly-sweet finish. Highly recommended.

    I was raised in the Spey Valley area, I have been drinking malts for about 25 years now (legally anyway). I have tried hundreds of malts from over peaty Islay whiskies to heather, honey, citrus, sea salted etc. I always come back to my glen, its like my long lost best friend every time I buy a bottle. Sure it''s simple, not pretentious (though the tasters description is) It''s helped me through rough times, tough times and love. I actually like the lack of peat, the sweet honey taste (with a drop of h20). They have simply got it right with this simple pure whisky. I don''t agree its just for beginning single malt drinkers, it''s a dram for any liquor cabinet, happy times and friends.

    Wonderfully rich and complex with a delicious sweet, fruity and floral character and subtle hints of spice around the edges. It''s hard to believe that a scotch of this quality is so affordable. An essential dram.

    Smother the Glenlivet easer on the palate then Glenfedich.

    It has a very sweet citrus-honey notes with a burst of alcoho, wonderful aromas. The palate is very floral, medium sweet with oak coming in the back, a slight tingling sensation in the nose and a medium long spicy and oaky finish. A satisfactory malt, worth the money.

    An unbelievable Scotch that is still somehow affordable considering its high-quality. The nose is gorgeous...a rich and complex bouquet of spiced Christmas oranges, cloves, honey. Whereas I found my Aberlour 10 had a gentle nip of a burn near the end, this one definitely has a fiery bite to it. Renowned as being incredibly complex, this is a Scotch you definitely want to try.

    I love the peaty, smoky Islays, and I also love the honeyed Balvanies, and omg, the Glenrothes Vintage 1985! And because I can''t be shelling out for the Nikka Yoichi (smoke & cherries!) more than once a year, the Glenmorangie Original (10-year) is my everyday. A teensy bit of pure water, and its floral character comes up so nicely. There is nothing better for the price.

    One of the best drops available in this price range if not the best. In any standard sort of pub this will always be my first port of call. A good introductory whiskey for new comers and I always recommend it. Suitable for all tastes
