Insider knowledge: Glenmorangie Original in Tin (Old Bottling) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Glenmorangie Original in Tin (Old Bottling) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Very fruity and thick. Rich notes of lemon, nectarine and apple. Spices.
Palate: Fresh and balanced, vanilla. Boiled sweets, very creamy, tiramisu, toffee.
Finish: Quite long, gentle, malty and very fruity.
People like me who could buy this as a staple for a low price a number of years ago just didn't know what we had. This was a smooth, mellow, flavorful whisky with lovely honey and floral notes and a reasonable mouth feel and finish, given its place in the market. It was a true entry level premium product. The 15 was even better.
