  • Excerpt: Not great, certainly no fun to drink on its own, and it's easily lost in a cocktail, although it does work if you enjoy less whiskey forward libations.

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:

    Glenmorangie X is a new type of Scotch whiskey - billed as the brand as Made for Mixing. Sure, many Scotch whiskeys are really intended for mixing (they come on the bottom shelf in handles) but this particular expression was created with just that purpose in mind. Lets see how it holds up.

  • Nose:

    Light, sweet, grainy on the nose. Passion fruit, honey, light cereal notes.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate, simple vanilla notes - a hint of oak and faint fruitiness.

  • Finish:

    Short, unremarkable finish. Reminds me more of Cutty Sark or Teachers - and I’d probably prefer them too. It makes a competent Rusty Nail, but then again so do many others.

  • Overall:

    Not great, certainly no fun to drink on its own, and it's easily lost in a cocktail, although it does work if you enjoy less whiskey forward libations.

  • Score:

    4
