The Original is a 10 year old whisky, bottled at 40% ABV. It’s matured for ten years in ex-bourbon casks and Glenmorangie’s famous slow-grown and air-dried “designer casks” from Missouri.
I get the scent of some fresh citrus, together with some sweetness and hints of vanilla.
The first I taste is the vanilla together with some gorgeous fruitiness and summer-feeling.
A medium finish with some sweetness, that ends with tones of citrus and peaches.
Glenmorangie The Original is a great entrance to the world of whiskies. It’s easy to drink and with the low ABV it has a nice and smooth palate, together with the sweetness. One dram of this always makes me want another one. If you don’t know what whisky to buy for present to your father e.g. I would say this could be a safe dram.
