Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, Glenmorangie The Original 10 Year exudes a bright, pale golden color. The hue is luminous, and when swirled, the whisky demonstrates graceful legs, indicative of its oily texture.
The olfactory profile is complex and inviting. Initially, one encounters a bright citrus aroma, dominated by notes of lemon zest and orange peel. As it evolves, you detect secondary aromas—floral nuances, like geraniums, and a honeyed sweetness, enriched by traces of vanilla and almond.
Upon the first sip, a subtle sweetness appears at the front of the palate—hints of vanilla and creamy toffee are evident. This is beautifully balanced by a zesty citrus vibrancy and an underpinning of peach and apricot. Mid-palate, the oak makes its presence felt, introducing a gentle spiciness and nutty undertones.
The finish is lingering, yet remarkably smooth. The sweet and fruity notes gently fade away, leaving room for a more complex layering of spice, nuts, and a final touch of maltiness.
The whisky is round and medium-bodied, offering a velvety texture that complements its complex flavor profile.

fast delivey and excllent scotch!
Especially given the price, it's almost impossible to argue with what this whisky accomplishes in the glass. Spicy floral and soft sugar cookie on the nose, with honey, very soft baking spice, and malt on the mid palate. Warming and refreshing simultaneously. A top desert-island pick.
It's a funny thing - The Glenmorangie Original 10 always scores towards the bottom of our blind single malt tastings, but we all agree it is a great scotch to just sip and enjoy. It is a very different single malt, with obvious citrus notes and a very light/smooth finish. I agree with other reviewers that this is a great introductory scotch for someone wanting to try a single malt. I always keep a bottle around for myself and for friends that don't (yet) appreciate a more assertive single malt.
fruity, honey, hint of spiciness. You can finish the bottle without realizing it. I would say this is the perfect bottle to get someone into scotch. Excellent everyday drink.
