Interesting fact… Glenmorangie Original in Tin (Old Bottling) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Glenmorangie Original in Tin (Old Bottling) whiskey, instead of 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.
