  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Very decent, just a little light, undemanding and, perhaps, unfocussed. Perhaps a matter of strength as well…

  • Excerpt: The only thing I might use this for is cocktails. I would rather spend a few extra dollars and get a nicer better from them.

  • Excerpt: 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.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is the ubiquitous, core expression from Glenmorangie, also labeled as "The Original". This is a ten year expression, matured in bourbon barrels for ten years.

  • Nose:

    Honey, fresh bread, sour apple

  • Taste:

    Sweet cream, bitter spice. Artificial pear, mildly lactic. Honey, fresh baked bread, cloves.

  • Finish:

    Short, a bit hot, and mildly astringent. Caramel, honey, pears and light fig.

  • Overall:

    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.
