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 (2)
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Soft, clean and refreshing: lemon sherbert and apricots, with honeyed fruit and a touch of toffee and vanilla. Gentle and satisfying.
A little weightier on the palate, with honey and malt, banana bread and subtle sweet spices. Clean and well balanced.
The honeyed fruit fades softly, and the finish is whistle-clean.
A textbook whisky, this – well made, beautifully balanced, delicate but still flavoursome.
Producer's Tasting Notes
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.
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.
The charming sweetness of delicious juices is left on the tongue.

For non peat, non sherry cask whisky’s, this one is very good.
My times crossword dram.Pleasant but nothing going on to disturb my concentration
I’m an Islay rather than Speyside fan and Glenmorangie 10 is up there with my favourites that are three times the price. So easy to like with it’s smooth and comforting vanillary feel in the mouth. Can’t go wrong with this one and you can get it at pretty much every half decent every corner shop. Five stars from me.
Even being a mainstream whisky it's definitely an excellent one. Just fantastic mixture of complex vanilla, apple, pear, floral bouquet.
Fantastic single malt, gentle on the palate yet strong fruit overtones, superb sweet finish, top shelf whisky, ten out of ten.
