Excerpt: Aged just 10 years, Glenmorangie Original isn’t overwhelmingly complex, but it offers so many different flavors — some up front, some subtle — that it’s a definite go-to Scotch whenever I see it on a drink menu.
Short, a bit hot, and mildly astringent. Caramel, honey, pears and light fig.
Just fine, but the Glenmorangie base spirit shows through here with a bitterness I cant seem to shake. A good, inexpensive bottle, but nothing particularly great. I often find myself enjoying this out when I'm at a bar or event with Miller, Bud Light, and Johnnie Red behind the bar and no other good bourbon or scotch in sight. It does great for that.
