Glenmorangie 10 Year Old - The Original

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Glenmorangie 10 Year Old - The Original to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Bottling Note

The Original is the flagship single malt Scotch whisky from the Glemorangie Distillery in the Highlands. Matured in a combination of first-and-second-fill American white oak casks for 10 years, the expression is a benchmark for creamy, approachable single malt. A long-running go-to dram for many whisky enthusiasts (including a few here at MoM Towers), this stuff is superb as an aepritif, though more than suitable for enjoying on a cooler evening.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Glenmorangie 10 Year Old - The Original Reviews

The perfect whisky at its price point.

Fantastic whisky. Real whisky. When you can get this on offer at £26 a bottle, nothing else compares. If you don't love this, you don't love whisky. Proper. No negatives.

30th October 2020

Good value for money

Love the finish . Got me buzzed in no time . Sneaks up on you after a while . Prefer it to the gold label or other drams in the price range . Surprisingly on sale at the Dubai duty free picked up a few

28th September 2020

A bit hot

I liked this less than expected. Which is weird. But compared to the other sweet scotches I had at the time, this felt hot, and didn’t stand up as well with ice. Pretty fruity, decent malted barley esters, but overall a disappointment. I’ll have to try again someday.

25th September 2020


A bit disappointing.
Has a good nose but the finish is non existent. Compared to other supermarket staples such as Bowmore 12 and Aberlour 12 this is bland. Usually always on offer so don't feel robbed at least at £26

5th September 2020

Simply heavenly

Quite honestly, I don't get the negative reviews. I do not claim to be a single malt connaisseur, but I have drunk loads of good whiskeys; Bushmills 16 year and Black Bush, Glenlivet, Lagavulin, Balvenie 16, Laphroaig 10, 12 and 16, Glenkinchie 12, Aberlour 12 and Glenmorangie sherry cask (the Lasanta) being a few of my favourites, but the go-to whiskey, the desert island whiskey for me is the Glenmorangie Original. Sweet but never too sweet, fruite but never too fruity, silky smooth, woody, with a hint of smoke and vanilla, heavenly. Just heavenly. Tesco has it on offer for 26 quid and I bought 4 of them.

11th August 2020


This is a solid drink, although I find that the 14 year Glenmorangie is just head and shoulders above this stuff.

31st July 2020

Disappointing - sharp, thin, not good enough to drink on its own

I am no great whisky connoisseur but I know a good spirit and this one is not. Based on the favourable reviews, I was expecting whisky as it should be - smooth with complex flavours and good body. Glenmorangie fails on all counts. It's unpleasantly sharp like cheap alcohol, very light bodied to the point of tasting thin and regarding complex flavours well forget about it - even if they are there, they are beaten by the sharpness of it. Good spirit should never burn in your mouth and throat and this one does. I paid 26 pounds for it on a special offer and it's not worth even that. I will use it for eggnog and for Christmas pudding as I don't find it good enough to drink neat, and will never buy another bottle again. If you want a good bottle for around 30-40pounds, I totally advise Highland Harvest which is really nice, but again, even Famous Grouse is far better than Glenmorangie. I am annoyed that I bought it, this bottle is both first and definitely the last one, never again.

28th July 2020

Grows on ya

I am no novice to the scotch world but no expert either. I got the Glenmorangie for a deal at $30 and some change. I have been on a Laphroaig 10 kick as my go to for a little while and decided to give this 10 a try. My initial assessment was disappointment but then I decided to assess it without comparing. I am glad I did because my stubbornness would have kept me from enjoying a really good scotch. I do put some cool water in it to get it down to around 38% from 43% and that also opens it up a bit. I would definitely buy this again even at a regular price.

13th July 2020

Excellent stuff if light and fruity suits you

I snapped a bottle at a terrific price just for the sake of it, and approached it with an open mind. I'm more into wood, peat and smoke when I peak consiously, but I have to say this one was a very nice surprise: pale, light, sweet yet complex, direct, and refreshing. Awesome stuff. This one and Lasanta are at the top of my list for a daily whisky.

5th July 2020


Good value for money.

20th June 2020

Interesting / First time purchaser

Umm ... for $40 maybe decent. Certainly not hard to drink. Reminds me of Tomatin's 12 year for same price or perhaps a bit less. Slight taste of grain alcohol. Overall, I like the stuff. But a lot of strong competition in that price range.

14th June 2020

Perfect go to whisky

A fantastic malt at a very good price. Even my wife thought it better than most. She doesn't drink whisky. Just a touch of water or a cube of ice....perfect

21st May 2020

The ‘Standard’ single, scotch malt whisky

The Glenmorangie 10 year old ‘Original’ is quite simply the standard that all other single malt scotch whiskies should be compared (other than Islay for obvious reasons.). Much better than many, much more expensive whiskies and quite simply it is delicious, smooth, creamy and sweet. I keep trying others, there are many fabulous scotch whiskies. But I always return to my trusty favourite, it never fails to deliver.

8th May 2020

Love it! My"go to" whisky!

Love it! My "go to" whisky, always smooth and consistent.

28th April 2020

Wonderful any time.

As you pointed out, a go to dram for even the most discerning of malt drinkers. Personally I am never disappointed when I taste it and in my opinion it is far superior to many supposedly "better" and certainly more expensive whiskies.

24th April 2020

Nobody is too much of a connoisseur for this dram

Glenmorangie is on the shelves of every single bar in Scotland for a reason. When you're tired of going on about smoke and peat and searching out those ultra-rare, super-expensive drams from distilleries which were destroyed by The Red Coats, you have always been able to rely on Glenmorangie to bring you down to Earth with an "aaahhh!"
It's just, really nice. Sweet but not too sweet, smooth, buttery goodness. And I am happy to report that unlike many whiskies which have been treated shamefully (and I believe that The Scottish Government should launch an official inquiry into this criminal behaviour) Glenmorangie is still very good. The 18 year old is just beautiful, but don't look down your nose at the 10.

22nd April 2020


Very nice,smooth

21st April 2020

My Daily!

In my opinion, The best in its price range! I enjoy a couple ounces over ice every night!

5th April 2020

sweet and light

very nice in the nose, many fruits, but then only young and sweet, maybe some vanilla
for the money not bad!

26th March 2020

Awesome for beginners and Do you think that those players and parents would be happy to play with Div 3 players?

"G'Morangie 10 is a lovely dram, easy enough and enjoyable for anyone new to single malts, yet complex enough too for those more experienced who can pick out the different tastes and layers; simple and complex, yep, depends who's drinking it. Not overly complex but enough to be interesting always; nice fruity. malty. floral, oakey and I find a little dry grassy or hay'ish (could be the malty oakey). But anyway to the dude that talking about peat smoke and Laphrounge? are you talking about Laphroaig? Please there is not a balance of peat smoke in GM 10, there is NO peat smoke in are just tasting oak. Your limited Kentucky bourbon palette is only used to vanilla, toffee, molasses and sugar (honey), what you're misinterpreting as peat is Oak my friend. There are some great Bourbons, but Welcome to the world of Whisky, Single Malts, several more layers of complexity. Yes Laphroaig does have peat, lots of it & will take some getting used to, maybe a long time till you get there, but when you do enjoy the sweetness and honey under the smoke !

11th March 2020

The original and perhaps the best

I am new to whiskey and tried dozens I wrong in thinking this is the archetypal whiskey ?.it's a beautiful wee dram

9th March 2020


Throughly enjoyed this whiskey, was really delicious. I go for this sort of price range and this is the best that I have tried.

22nd February 2020

A great dram

Like many reviewers here, Glenmorangie was the whisky that got me into whisky. After visiting the Distillery on a holiday in Scotland and spending far to much in the shop on bottles of the classic 10 year old, Quinta Ruban and the Tain, I took them back to our digs and quickly the love of whisky started. For that reason Glenmorangie deserves full stars. Ive tried to like the whisky in the past and failed but never caught the bug until I tried this.The classic is none offensive, clean, easy to drink and just lovely. I always have a bottle in and it delivers every time.Thankfully there's a bottle in most pubs in the whisky section next to the hideous offerings like Haig Club. Ignore the whisky snobs. This is a great dram.

6th February 2020

best value in my area for single malts

to the guy that wrote this taste like ballentines finest..dude I got that got b's finest for xmas, and it taste like acidic burnt wood and my stomach hurts from just a small bit of cannot compare that crappy ass shit to to glenmorangie 10, its good scotch, smooth, nice complexities I just dont dig the apricot note but its not bad I like it more as I go

3rd February 2020

Good Easy drinking Highland Malt

Very Very nice. My go to for a good palatable single malt at a reasonable price. I am not good with peaty, smoky Island malts, so this is perfect. Yum Yum gimme some.

29th January 2020

She’s a beaut’‼️

In the old days, this delightful, approachable SMW would be called a “panty remover”
Now a days, it is called a “date enhancer”
Have always respected the tighty from Tain

22nd January 2020

I would recommend this Scotch to someone who is comfortable with Johnny Walker or Dewars but looking into single malts and may be putoff by Laphrounge

I received the Glenmorangie gift set from my son in law for Christmas. We opened the two small bottles of 12 year old first (10 years in American oak and 2 years in Oloroso casks/porto casks) I love cross barreling beers, wines and whiskeys so I couldn't wait. Both were very nice to drink indeed. Finishing in the fortified wine barrels adds a very subtle fruit note that I totally enjoy. Then we drank a couple drams of the 10 year old. I mostly drink blended whiskeys as single malts are generally loaded with 'character' and some have taken getting used to for my Kentucky Bourbon palette. I tend to seek balance in my whiskeys (and beers) and Glenmorangie seems to have found that delicate mix of malt, peat and oak. The smokiness of the peat was pleasant- not overbearing (Laphrounge took some getting used to) the tannins lended good leathery vanilla notes that followed through the finish. The overall balance is correct with the peat smoke gently leading the way followed by oak vanilla without any bite.

26th December 2019

Good standard malt whisky

This scotch in many ways supplies the yardstick by which I judge malt whisky. It is classically highland with some wood notes and smooth entry with a leather finish. If you want to know if you like malt whisky, buy this one first. Explore from there.

18th December 2019

Beats Jack but for the price it should be more than just alcohol...

I am not a fan of this malt. I wouldn't turn it down as a gift but I would never give it as one.

17th December 2019

window putty and emulsion paint

I get a musty smell of paint, old wood and damp leather shoes. Bit of apple mixed in on tasting. rather nice.

15th December 2019

Nasty, harsh flavor

This is my second time trying Glenmorangie 10, and both times I have hated it. I just do not get the high marks most people give it. First of all, at 43 abv, it is too strong for such a weak-bodied whisky. Second, it has a harsh, gasoline flavor. I like all kinds of scotches, from blends to Islay stuff, but I cannot stomach this. It is like rotgut American bourbon. I would not take a bottle as a gift. For anyone new to single malts, do not start with this one. Go with Glenlivet, which is about the same price, at lest here in the USA.

10th November 2019

Classic for a reason

Glenmorangie is one of those drams that many people “move on” from, in search of exotic liquors. Tangy, smokey Islay malts, rare bourbons, aged rums. Like the ubiquitous Fender Telecaster, it is shunned by the inexperienced as “limited” or “for beginner’s”.
I know. I made the same mistake.
Why have something every single pub in Scotland has when you can have a Scapa!
Until recently I had drunk Glenmorangie a handful of times in my >30 year whisky career. After drinking practically every single malt whisky I could find or afford, I returned to the one I probably ordered first in my life. I probably put ice in it! The 18 year old is like coming home to your favourite meal. The ten is absolutely straightforward. It is a little sweet, a little bitter, with a slightly buttery consistency. There is nothing about it that stands out particularly, but it does everything it needs to. No show. No Unique Selling Point. Just perfectly decent, single malt whisky that you can drink anytime and not be disappointed with.

31st October 2019

Strong date aroma.

Initially, this tastes too much alcohol and spicy. However, it was very surprising that after a while, more than anything else, there is very strong, lovely dried date aroma you can smell. Anybody will be able to smell it in an empty bottle of this. Date is a desert fruit, how can something made of grain in a wet and cold place can produce exact same aroma is amazing. High quality liquor that gives you drunken feeling but does not give you hang over headache. The best whiskey I ever had.

14th October 2019

Simplistic Orange Beautifulness

ok, I have been thinking this one over for a while, and I believe I got it.
Nose, sweet navel oranges or mandarin orange.
Palate, fresh squeezed orange juice with a touch of honey. Thats it, thats the deal. Simplistic orange beauty. A delight.

8th October 2019

Can't fault it for the price.

The prince of 10 year old malts

27th September 2019

Working Man's Single Malt

No explanation of this whiskey would be complete without a little backstory.

My obsession with scotch began completely by accident. I had given a friend of mine $20 to pick up a bottle of E&J brandy, but he thought I said "J&B".

So began a 13 year love affair with the finest spirit known to man. Since then, my palate has grown more sophisticated. Every year, around the holidays, I share that love of good spirits with my family in the form of this classic highland single malt.

A nice rich nose of honeydew melon, almonds, and citrus is accompanied by a lovely and creamy amber appearance.

The taste is difficult to describe precisely because it changes so much depending on how you drink it. If you sip it with ice, the fruit and honey is very apparent. If you let it warm up, a little more richness like caramel and vanilla toffee starts to emerge. If you really swallow deep, the dark smokiness characteristic of good single malt makes a big appearance.

It's just fabulous whiskey for the price. Try it if you have a chance.

18th September 2019

Worth buying

Smooth & delicate.

28th August 2019

Top of the line

Nothing lacks this whisky

25th July 2019

Very god

One of the best single malt

25th July 2019

Disappointed. To cramel and sweet and lacking in character.

Nothing specially nice about this Glenmorangie. As several have stated already, it is not bad (I certainly wouldn't throw it down the sink), but is too caramel, sweet, cloy and lacking in character. I haven't bought any of the Glenmorangies for many years, but the 10 year old original that I remember was a pale, tangy delecate, mineral whisky that was really nice. Will not buy this one again, but may try some of the other Glenmorangie whiskies.

11th June 2019

Good all rounder

Good whiskey. I wouldn't take reviews from Americans seriously, they generally don't know what they talking about.

8th June 2019

Great for price point

Light, fruity, and notes of honey.

8th June 2019

Well worth the money

A gorgeous easy drinking smooth whisky. In my top 5

18th April 2019

The King is dead.

I like almost all single malt scotches. This is the worst tasting one I’ve ever experienced. It is a mixture of cloying sweetness and nasty bitterness. The sweetness/bitterness is I suspect related to the caramel used to colour this product. In addition there is way too much wood giving the whisky a dull stewed quality. (I recall the 80’s early 90’s when the standard Glenmorangie had a beautifully sharp, fresh and focussed flavour profile. It did a wonderful magic trick in the glass where an initial sharp metallic element disappeared leaving a sumptuous creaminess and delicate florals. Then the company changed the blending regime, adding way to many older casks, thereby completely destroying the signature aroma and taste of this once classic dram. The company admitted its mistake but it never got back to its spectacular form.)

6th April 2019


Too young, too sweet, too watered down. Wish I wouldn’t have bought a bottle as it was hard to finish. I got very tired of the taste about half way through. Out of the base glens this is by far the worst.

4th April 2019

Just a great scotch...and mass produced no less!

This is my favorite among the 'Glens'....livet....fiddich...and morangie. All quality 'staples'. While often this is priced in the mid $40'sUS....I can occasionally grab them up for $30. This is 43% in US and methinks surprisingly good (and consistently so). Just a touch more complex than the other 'Glens' in my opinion....embracing its position at the very top of my cheap(er) daily tipples. I often want something different than Glenmorangie 10, however, I rest more easily knowing that I always have this one available to fall back upon. A great base line palette for Glenmorangie's 12 year cask finishes....port, sherry, and sauternes....all of which are even more interesting. I really really like this one....simply for what it is.

20th February 2019

Second time around

I first purchased this malt in 1973 . it was my first malt and I found the complexity very appealing. It was smooth with a variety of flavours that I cannot recall. I was sufficiently pleased with this bottle to purchase another for Hogmanay two years later and was very disappointed in the rough finish. It reminded me of an inexpensive blended whisky. Well I am looking forward to 2019 and having read the reviews will try this malt yet again for Hogmanay. Rating based on first memory. Here's hoping....

29th December 2018

Excellent whiskey for the $

I've been drinking Scotch for twelve years now, and single malts for about half that time. Several brands are cheaper, but I don't even consider them anymore. This finds its way into my cart every time it's on the shelf at the local spirits shop.

Fine nose, rich fruity taste. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Very pleasant buzz with no lingering after effects. This always punches above its weight against more expensive whiskeys!

There must be some magic in those tall stills, because this stuff is better than the numbers say it should be. I love it!

26th December 2018

Mediocre whisky for the money i paid wont buy again.

Meh... taste very similar to ballantines finest wont buy again if you want to save money and have a pretty similar whisky buy ballantines finest.

25th December 2018

A clean, fresh single malt that I enjoy over and over again.

I was first introduced to Single Malt Scotch in the 1990's and have tried many. This has become my "go-to" Scotch as I travel often and most decent bars carry it. Smoother than a Macallan or a Glenfiddich.

20th October 2018

First ever whiskey and what a great start

As a newbie to the world of whiskey it's hard to rate as this is my first bottle. I was advised to start with this and I am happy I did, I found it easy to drink no harshness or burn. The slight spicy taste and smoothness kept me going back for more. Brilliant whiskey to start your journey on

2nd October 2018

Taste like a bourbon

Nothing special. Probably a beginners scotch. I prefer more smoke. I love Talisker.

26th September 2018

Nice, easy to drink but complex flavoured all rounder.(

A nice 'dram after work' everyday whisky. No harshness, no peat or smoke. Easy to drink and a great starter to recommend to a novice drinker. Quite complex with each sip. Malt and apple on the nose with citrus and some firey zing that gives way to fruity tastes until the cream and toffee finishes the plethora of flavours. No harshness but a lot to enjoy which could easily go down a bit too quick if you don't restrain your sips.

Certainly not an Islay so if your one for a smokey kick like Bowmore or Lagavulin then this isn't for you. More of a Glenlivet founders reserve but with more complex quality. Worth a purchase especially at the price for what it is......nice whisky!

28th August 2018

A Single Malt Staple

A palate of Citrus, Peat & Vanilla notes perfectly balanced. This is an incredible dram at any price but the MSRP makes it a Scotch that’s hard to pass up.

27th July 2018

Can't fault it.

Very nice, unoffensive, light. This is how proper Scotch single malt should taste like, take a note Glenlivet...

18th July 2018

2 fingers and one ice cube......

Peat and vanilla smoke...but in perfect harmony

2nd July 2018

Quality scotch

If you're looking for something that's not going to disappoint this is it. It's a great well rounded scotch, smooth and with enough complexity to satisfy the more sophisticated. As far as age goes you'd think the 10 is a typo, it's better than a lot of 12 and 15 year old whiskeys.

25th June 2018

Great, Classic Light and Fruity Highland

Primarily citrus, slightly peachy aroma, very pleasant; vanilla on the palate initially, then fruit flavours with a tiny hint of spice. Very, very smooth (perhaps more so than Glenfiddich 12). Slight finish of peach.
Verdict: A classic, great for beginners and seasoned drinkers alike. It's not complex, but quite pleasant and far from boring. This is not the best, but it's damn close and well worth the money.

19th May 2018

A great malt for the beginner as well as being a great malt for those that like a well mannered mature malt

Heavy fruit on the nose. Smooth and thick on the palate.
Long smooth vanilla and fruit aftertaste.
It's a good as it ever was. One of the up front single malts in the liquor cabinet

8th May 2018

Brunswick MD USA

Very nice creamy good mouth feel nice finish

7th May 2018

A true classic

I don't think I have ever reviewed this particular whisky even though this is actually where my obsession with the stuff began! This is the very first single malt I ever bought and I loved it. Not fruity like Glenlivet and Fiddich 12 yrs more honey , vanilla, oak, even slightly floral. One of the best( if not the best) examples of the Highland style and considering this is their entry level just shows you how great Glenmorangie really is. Always welcome in my collection. The Sugarbear

22nd March 2018

Drink it up

Not quite as creamy as higher priced 12yr old such as Macallan but very drinkable for 10yr single malt

11th March 2018

I think I got a bad batch.

The taste is there, but the nose is practically non-existent. I had a bottle before this one that was far superior in every way, especially the nose and finish, but also the color. It should be a brilliant orangish gold. The bad batch is a much lighter gold. Also, the alcohol quality was a step below the last one and Glenmo already has a tendency to produce hangovers, even in the higher quality 12 year bottles of Lasanta and QR (Nectar D’Or is an exception to this and I haven’t tried the 18, Signet, or older scotches yet). A double gave me a light hangover. I’ve relegated this bottle to a one shot limit or as a finisher after a couple shots of better scotch.

I picked up another gift pack bottle with a Glenmorangie glass and a shot of Lasanta. Hopefully, that bottle will redeem the Original, with the fine Lasanta and okay glass making up for the last’s failure. The rough bottle was from 06/02/2017 marked L67403 17001439. Avoid a similar bottle if at all possible since it is a generously rated 3 stars at best whereas my previous experience with Glenmorangie was a 4 star value buy. This bad batch is similar in quality to Speyburn 10, whereas I expect Glenmorangie 10 to be competing with Glenfiddich 12. Macallan 12 and Glenlivet 12 are the two bottles I make sure to keep stocked, with Balvenie rising up the charts. Lasanta is pretty damn good, but Macallan is better. QR is good, but not a regular for my palate. ND is excellent.

6th March 2018

6 stars

I don't know scotch; but, i know what I like. One taste o this Angel's nectar and you will be sold. we should invade the country and turn the distillery into a Church - war would end over night.

23rd February 2018

As complex as a complex thing

Never thought of buying it until it appeared on sale at Tesco for £26 so had to do it. Wow, what a tasty dram this is, I've done a couple of back to back tastings against Ancnoc 12 and Dalwhinnie 15 and Glenfarclas 12 and to my taste buds this wins. Lots more going on the palate than the others, really nice depth to it and great finish. I'll have to buy another bottle whilst on sale, and think more seriously about Lasanta.....

31st January 2018

First love and still a favorite everyday pour...

My first try of single malt was a 3-pack from Costco - Glenmo 10, Quinta Ruban (port finish) and Lasanta (sherry finish). Despite being a complete newbie I fell in love with single malts and whisky in general. I do have various more interesting malts that I paid more money for and have more flavor and complexity, but Glenmo 10 to my palate remains among the most complex young malts, thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying. I like to keep a spare bottle - I'll often drink it when I can't decide what else I crave. It's 43% here in the US.

30th January 2018

I like it, at the price point seems fair

Fairly new to the scotch world. Have about 30 bottles and bought the 18 yo of this before buying this bottle. I enjoy it. Many of the same qualities at a third of the price. Drinking side by side to the 18 I can't say you are justified in spending the extra 60$. I am sure some of the nuances of the 18yo are lost on me as I develop a palate. Plan to always have a bottle of this on the shelf. Its amazing to me what a tall still can produce!

27th January 2018

Thumbs up

Light floral citrus

24th January 2018


One of The better Highlands, Wins in The long run. Really well made. But I'm affraid if one compare Scotlands Whiskies to The Japanese Whiskies, few of Scotlands Whiskies Will or would survive.

4th January 2018

Nice taste

Very good quality/price ratio

23rd December 2017

great quality price whisky

Very smooth, pleasant to taste

18th December 2017

A first class whisky..

Never been a whisky drinker.. Always went for the Havana Rum. After trying alot of whisky's none compare to this. It's not too sweet on the palette but it has the perfect balance of flavours and sweetness.. Perfect for any occasion. Highly recommend as a number one whisky...

5th December 2017


My favourite whisky of all time!!!

22nd November 2017

So many better

So many better at the price no outstanding features so back to Glen Moray for the daily dram.

10th November 2017

Really good stuff

Exceptional value. Much tastier than others in the price range such as Glenlivet and Glenfiddich. Also, higher in alcohol at 43 percent so by far a better deal. I've tasted many more expensive single malts but always come back to Glenmorangie Original. It's a baseline whisky, one to measure all others by.

8th November 2017

Vule for money

Great whiskey for the price. Nice taste and after taste especially for a bourbon lover.

8th October 2017

A Little Overhyped

There's nothing bad about this whisky. It's pleasant. It's light and floral. I'd never complain about drinking it. But compared to something like an Old Pulteney 12, I'm sorry to say, but it's kind of boring. If I want a honey-ish floral whiskey, I'll probably go for a lowland Glenkinchie 12 instead.

20th September 2017

Highly recommended

My favorite whiskey ever. I tried a lot and still couldn't find better. Mild fruity taste and aftertaste, charming smell and pleasant smoothness - this is my persaption of this heavenly beverage

Nothing extraordinary, but very pleasant for the budget.

18th August 2017

Nice whiskey

Great whiskey for the price. Nice taste and after taste especially for a bourbon lover. I think it lacks the complexity of the matured whiskeys but I love it and would buy it again and again.

12th August 2017

The best in my life till time .

Am also find this is batter than jony walker whisky .I think very well this is for injoy .......-------L.R.GODARA BAGLA HISAR HARYANA

5th August 2017

Good all round Highland Malt!

Citrus punch on the nose with a very malty palate, like digestive biscuits!
Smooooooooth smooth finish.
Great all round refreshing classic. Could drink anytime.

2nd August 2017

started with this and will always judge the rest to the end by this

started with this and it has always been my go to or default whiskey. the burn most describe is the spicy finish i love so much. its so smooth yet flavorful that i literally detect different flavors depending on how much i sip at a time. barely on my lips gives me the hint of spice and honey. alittle more on my tongue and i taste vanilla and peach. a fuller mouth and i rtaste the stronger qualities single malts are known for. oh and make sure to swallow slow as other flavors are unlocked in the back of my mouth with delicious foloow through when it finally settles in the back of my throat. the warmth as it trickles down to my belly is just the comforting icing on this cake of a whiskey!

29th July 2017

Very good

I am not familiar with what a good dram is. I am not sure how to drink it, so I mix it with water and ice. I would say better than The Gray Grouse and Johnny Walker. I am not sure it is better than Dewars. But what the hell do I know?

9th July 2017

Try it

Great sm Scotch for the money.

1st July 2017

Must Have

Syrup Peaches, apricots, citrus, balanced. Best 'more affordable' Scotch I've had... Repeat customer. Rated 5 Star because of Qualtiy vs Price

15th June 2017

It's worthy stuff.

This entry level bottling carries such sophistication and complexity for a spirit driven young malt. I got hold of a 43% abv fortunately and was honestly blown away by what I was tasting at that age and price point.

4th May 2017

Great Whiskey

My favourite of all the 10 year old whiskeys. Smooth but complex taste, easy to drink great on its on, with ice or just a splash of water. A grade all rounder.

21st April 2017



20th April 2017


One of the best I've ever had. Very palatable for people new to drinking single malt scotch.

8th April 2017

Another one for the overrated pile.

Same with Jack Daniels, I cannot get my head around why this is so popular. It's not a bad drink but distinctly average. No where near deserving it's popularity. I will be generous and give it 2 1/2.

11th March 2017

Superb quality

Without doubt one of the best whiskies on the market

9th February 2017

Great entry level Scotch

After a good run with the entry level single malt scotchs' I found this to be the best by far. I feel it's important for ppl to identify how they drink their scotch; as we are two different palates and the scotch itself will taste differently. I myself drink mine on the rocks.

I found this 10 year to have much more flavor then others in the category with none of the burn the low reviewers experienced. It's very fruity with citrus and vanilla coming through the strongest. It had a nice finish that was smooth and stayed around just long enough. For the price, you can't go wrong with this one.

27th January 2017

Mr Smith

Wow is all I have to say about this fantastic single.
It was a very welcomed surprise when I first tried It and easy........very easy to drink.
A prefect whiskey to share and good for new comers and veterans alike.
A must buy and definitely has a place on my shelf amongst the best.

8th January 2017

5 star

Best ever

7th January 2017


The best I've tried, all the way, All across the world Glenmorangie tops the rest

5th January 2017

Glenmorangie 10 year old

my favourite scotch & loved by all served.

4th January 2017

Have a bottle bought in 2002!

I have a bottle purchased in Scotland in 2002. It is still 3/4 full now. Just took a BIT for a chest cold and WooHoo we BOTH enjoyed the burn and taste! 24 years and counting!

10th December 2016

My first single malt in my twenties

I have enjoyed Glenmorangie for nearly fifty years. Smooth mouth feel, soft notes, well rounded.
I love the color. A solid 10 year old and a bargain for the quality.

11th November 2016

A great example of a whisky with a very fruity flavour profile

Presentation: Orange, orange and more orange, with some bronze and gold detailing. The Original 10 Year Old is certainly a bright bottle on any shelf with the elegantly shaped clear glass putting the whisky's colour on show. Different, but still very classy.

Appearance: Bright gold colour in a glass, more orange in the bottle with consistency maintained through the addition of e150 caramel colouring and chill filtration; a common practice with larger distillery’s flagship expressions.

Aroma: Stone fruits, strong ripe banana. With water smells less of banana and more of honey.

Flavour: Smooth, strawberry, banana, citrus fruit zing, faintest hint of oak spice and vanilla. Loses complexity with water as the flavours become harder to distinguish from each other.

Finish: Medium length, lingering spices.

Would I buy it again?

Yes, Glenmorangie The Original 10 Year Old is an excellent go to Highlands whisky. It is also a great example of a whisky with a very fruity flavour profile. It is smooth and easy to drink, but still hangs around on your pallet long enough for you not to immediately forget that you tasted it. That said, there are many more Glenmorangie expressions that I would also like to try.

27th October 2016

Angus Carmichael

No peat or smoke , v sweet with viscosity. Hints of coffee butter and slight toffee. Also fruit and cereals. Nice if you like highland styles but not dry enough for me now and after an outstanding laphroig 10 year recently this seems a let down but maybe thats unfair as v different types of whiskey.

24th October 2016

Clean as a mountain river

The chaps at Master of Malt are spot on, but the nose also has a kind of cooling mint. The palate is balanced and creamy. Vanilla and a shy oak in the background. Tiramisu, ok. Toffee..? Just a little... Peppery wave. The finish is medium, malty, fruity, and both mouth-watering and dry (!).

8 out of 10... Yes, it's a good whisky. Not complex, not punchy, but good, well-balanced and clean. Very clean. Maybe a whisky for a newbie, but also a whisky to enjoy whisky vets...

8th October 2016

Bang for Buck

A great choice for the price. Smooth and flavorful. Not overtly complex you get exactly what you are expecting. Light fruit and a long enjoyable finish. I go to staple for an everyday scotch.

18th September 2016

Steal at $30!!

Im a huge Glenmorangie fan. I've had most of their private editions, all the 12 years, the 18, and the signet. For the price, this has to be one of their best. Picked a bottle up for $30 today and am blown away. The nose is the creamiest nose of any whisky I've tried (under $100). I suggest adding a couple drops of water to really open it up and make the palate equally as creamy. Fantastic stuff!

13th August 2016

Always relied upon to be good

If I'm out and about or someone brings out a selection of bottles to offer me a dram I often pick the Glenmorangie because it never disappoints. Lovely and smooth, creamy and sweet, nice malty aftertaste. I'm all out at the moment, but not for long. For the price Glenmorangie 10 is very hard to beat.

6th August 2016

The Classic

Excellent everyday dram, super soft and smooth, very easy to sip. Extremely citrusy and floral throughout. If I had to find one flaw it would be the abv, could be higher (perhaps 43%), but this is a whisky for the masses. For those reviewers that cannot handle this dram, heartburn etc, you must not be able to handle anything as Glenmorangie produces the purest and cleanest whisky in Scotland, doesn't get any "gentler".

24th July 2016

Mr.Peter Gadalla

Just like nectar.
Truley smooth, and extremely addictive, in a very nice sort of way.
The best I have ever tasted in 60 years.
My regards
Scotland is still the great

15th June 2016

Indiana Jones

Classic tasting and my #1 scotch! For last 4 years! I only buy this!

26th May 2016

My favorite 10 yr dram

I would add to the tasting notes, nose includes the scent of Highlands heather. Well done, Nine Men of Tain!

21st May 2016


Everyone has different taste. One guy likes coke another pepsi. This my taste, I really love this brand. Pretty sweet scotch, highland scotch. This is far from Islay, which I do not like. Great flavour!!!!!!

11th May 2016



22nd April 2016

Stanley Stanner

Excellent single malt for the price.

6th April 2016


Excellent for those (like me) who really don't care for peat.

20th March 2016


Very good choice.for the price can't get nothing better.😊

6th March 2016

American drinker

I am a bourbon fan. I found whiskey to be too mild for me to enjoy. An associate gave me a sample of this at his home and I was very impressed. The American whiskey I had tried were unremarkable, aged about 2 to 4 years. This has matured for ten years and the time seems to make all the difference.

First to hit my taste is pepper, then sweet citrus, vanilla, then a nectar flavor at the finish. I found that a small splash of cool water brings out the finish a bit more. This is odd for me as, again, I typically prefer my bourbon neat.

A definite addition to my cabinet. This may become my new standard.

29th February 2016


A good choice to begin one's single malt adventure.

14th February 2016

Bay Ridge Brooklyn

Nice whiskey for the price. Good single malt with a very nice finish.

29th January 2016


I'm sorry but this is real bad! astringent nose, and burning on the tongue. Even with 2 drops water to subdue the harsh burn you can't possibly taste this and let it dwell on your mouth as it burns your tongue so bad. Black label can outmatch this single malt and I had my fair share.

9th January 2016

Pretty good

Kinda tangy for my taste but solid finish and viscosity. A good sipper for the fruity palate.

31st December 2015

Great everyday dram

Sweet and fruity with a nose full of flowers. Tastes wonderful as an after dinner dram.

27th December 2015


its flavor and smokiness that lingeres long on your tounge makes me a fan!

25th December 2015

Solid whiskey for its price

A nice, solid and fresh whiskey, especially good considering its price.
I always enjoy a glass of this one

23rd December 2015


Wonderful whisky for the price. Rich, smooth as silk with sweet hints of Vanilla. My favourite Whisky in this price range.

27th November 2015

Thumbs up

Not a fan of scotch but I liked this one because it's not too strong. It's really smooth and gentle to the stomach. I loved it actually.

18th November 2015


A solid single malt scotch. Nothing spectacular, but a smooth taste and flavor anyone could appreciate whether you like scotch or not.

23rd October 2015

Mr koch

Four stars. Very satisfying

18th October 2015

Hot at 40%?

Something is wrong. Besides the burn, the bourbon casks almost dominate this excellent distillery's signature notes. Vanilla, and almonds on the astringent nose...the citrus has nearly gone to sleep...basic chocolate finish. Heat and severe lack of balance...not liking the new OB. The 12 wasn't spectacular, but was much, much better. I did all I could to give this 10 a chance.

25th September 2015

A very good bourbon matured whisky

I have tried a lot of whisky's over the years and this is a very solid, well crafted whisky. Great value for money and very consistent. I always have a bottle in the house.

9th September 2015

Glen 10 = best value in 12 year old category

Gelnmorangie, the original 10 yr old, remains in my opinion the best value including 12 year olds. It is about $35 / 750 ml in my area, a price that allows it to be used as my day to day scotch. That is a good thing as 12 year old scotches are about all I like to drink now besides a good red wine with a good meal now and then. To go up to what else I might drink, (including Balvenie doublewood, MaCallan 12 yr old - two of my other favorites) just isn't really worth it. When alternatives go on sale or I just need a change then fine, but going back to the Glen 10 is always easy. It helps that I usually add some ice to my scotch but even neat, when the differences show up the most, the Glen 10 holds up pretty well.

8th September 2015

Glenmorangie original 10 years

Absolutely beautiful! An original. I can only think that the reserved and etc., can only 'be' better...

2nd September 2015

Menos de lo que esperaba.

Es bueno, pero no muy bueno. Pero igual me gusto.

23rd August 2015

Best reasonably priced single malt!

The tarlogians have it!!

22nd August 2015


Love it! Beautiful wiskey

18th August 2015

Glenmorangie 10 Year Old Original

I am new to the drinking of Scotch whiskys. I have tried several of the Glen- type scotch whiskys. However, I do enjoy the Glenmorangie. It is smooth and gentle to the taste and the stomach. Moreover, I think the alcohol volume is just right - but could be a bit stronger - but not to give you a headache. What other scotches do you recommend in this area?

8th July 2015

As 'e said, a perfect daily drinker

In Ontario, where whisky is expensive, this one is a bargain. I'd have a dram of this every day and nay complain.

7th July 2015

A safe port of call.....

A great dram for the money!

25th June 2015

Perfect daily drinker

The 10 year is my "go to" scotch for a daily drinker. Is it the best I've ever had? Nope, but it is damn good and great for the price. I prefer a Balvenie 14 or Yamazaki for special occasions, but I go through a bottle too quickly to justify buying Balvenie on a weekly basis.

I think Glenmorangie 10 is beautiful with hints of vanilla and floral tones. Best with a few drops of water to open it up.

22nd June 2015

How can anyone drink this stuff.

It burns my throat and brings on heartburn.

14th June 2015

Really like this stuff

For the money, how could you go wrong? In my opinion it is smooth, tasty, and has lots of character. My cabinet always has a few bottles of this at all times.


17th May 2015

New Era in Scotch Whiskey

Aged in former bourbon barrels? It used to be, that nearly 70% of Scotch used former Jack Daniels barrels, as some part of the aging process. I tried Glenmorangie 10 a little over a decade ago- when it was aged in ex-sherry casks and thought it was lovely. With bourbon's growing popularity ((before the boom), Scotch makers have experimented more with bourbon barrels. For some expressions, this works well- albeit different. But for something as light and delicate as Glenmorangie's single malt recipe, the bourbon influence feels intrusive. I share the feeling of many distilleries today, that there is unrealized potential with ex-bourbon barrel aging...but for those who grew up on the old stuff, I wish they'd make room in their storehouses for more traditional barrels. I paid $35 for mine (very cheap for the USA). Water helps, and tears, give it yet another unwanted dynamic. Hello to the folks at M.O.M. (I love what you do, and appreciate your services!)...this will likely be deleted. No hard feelings. Maybe the 750ml bottles here are not up to par. Glenmorangie shouldn't be hot, mine burns, (not joking now), even with water and breathing time...I hope this bourbon experiment works out in the end, I'd always said there were great bourbons out there (maybe some Scottish distilleries will locate those barrels)...eventuality, lol. Take care, gentleman. Thank-you.

13th May 2015

Pleasant, smooth and drinkable but...

It's not a bad dram. It's smooth, light and citrus vanilla cream.... but for the money, spend a little extra for the Nectar D'Or (my favorite) or the Quinta Ruban 12. Both are quite delicious and worth the little more in price. I love Laphroaig 18 and it's smokey, peat complexity, but for super deliciousness, the Nectat D'Or is hard to beat.

11th April 2015

Faultless - Depending who you are

Glenmorangie is a wonderful whisky! It is very smooth and a great introductory for any whisky drinker. That is not to say it is a beginners whisky, it is not, it is a great whisky in it's own right. Some people like steak rare, some like it medium or well-done, who is to say they are wrong?!

As I have aged I love Glenmorangie as an easy whisky I can turn to any time any place, whereas other whiskys that people comment on I have to be in the right frame of mind.

These days choose a stronger flavour whisky, but that's maybis as I've numbed myself with strong variations of everything from cheese to beer.'

ANyway, Glenmorangie is an all round good'en! Those who don't like it have mostly drunk too much to appreciate anything with a milder taste.

7th April 2015


No te dejes impresionar por ser un whisky economico.....este trago es casi perfecto!! Con un color palido asombroso, en nariz suave, en boca muy fresco algo dulce por la vainilla, pero con un balance que algunos Macallans no alcanzan...sin duda lo tendre en mi Bar Personal...

31st March 2015


hey do not know many things about whiskeys,but that one had a really smooth taste and it did not leave my mouth for many minutes.Really loved it :)

15th March 2015

can't stand the vanilla scent

not for me

13th March 2015

I need to re-try

It probably didn't help that I tasted this in the middle of a session of Lagavulin and Ardbeg, but I was not a fan.

I still have a handful of the big names left to try (Macallan, Balvenie, Talisker, Highland Park), but I have a feeling I'm forever lost in the Islay triangle (Ardbeg, Laproaig, Lagavulin).

6th March 2015

Great Scotch

Although I like Talisker for a little peat, this is a fine scotch. Smooth vanilla with a wonderful nose. Smoother and richer than the other Glens IMO

19th February 2015

Best for the price

First sip fruity and at the end a fresh sent of vanilla lone this for the price how ever dalmore 12 best for the price.

24th January 2015

Quickly Acquired Taste

Pour it. Add water and let it sit for five minutes. This malt becomes creamy and smooth. Vanilla and cream dominate the palate. Nose stays the same. Don't be fooled into thinking this is a cheap whisky; it's a delicate whisky. I will buy again. It perfectly rings a change from my favorites, Islay malts. Glenmorangie 10 is a great single malt.

18th January 2015

What scotch is meant to be

When I first tried this a couple months ago I was happily surprised. Neat out of the bottle it was finesse, delicate, superb. I thought this is Scotch as it is meant to be, before I read any reviews. Sure sometimes I want a peaty experience, and this is not, but for an every day nuanced and warm mouthfeel this is tops!

16th January 2015


very fruity, full of flavor, vanilla, flowers.Medium body.A gentle, an elegant single malt.

11th January 2015

Waste of money

Taste like a cheap American Bourbon.yuck

7th January 2015

Pretty Good

This is a very complex Scotch. There are so many different tastes in each sip. I usually sip on Islay Scotch, thus this was a good change in pace.

31st December 2014

second best for the price

as a bartender I have had the opportunity to taste test many brands of high end (and low end) scotches. For my tastes, the only scotch that is better is Glenmorangie's 18 year old version which is twice the cost but not twice as good!

23rd December 2014

I get almonds

I'm a Glenmorangie fan, hands up. When I smell this I get lightly roasted almonds - a sort of smooth, creamy nuttiness with a bit of toasted sweetness. A good example of how ubiquity in whisky (this is so widely available everywhere in the UK in Ireland) does not mean pedestrian quality.

15th December 2014

Get it while the gettings good

smooth, citrus notes are excellent, better than average peppery finish, a little light, but THE PRICE is a a 1.75 for $63 USA

9th December 2014

pleasantly suprised

Ever since encountering this pleasant whisky in Edinburgh it has become my favourite brand.Very fruity and a hint of spicy.For those of you who like a full bodied peat and smokey whiskey may I suggest a Talisker.For those who like a nice smooth wee nip this could be for you.

7th December 2014

It's Orangey!

i agree with the inestimable Ralfy: Glenmorangie is one of the three or four most interesting, complex malts out there (the other being mentioned was Pultney). Many new to scotch come from bourbon or are peat heads, only able to appreciate explosive whiskies. They miss the subtle ever changing quality of a malt like Glenmorangie. Bill Lumsden is the greatest artist in whisky today.

1st December 2014

excellent on the lighter side

very nice taste, extremely smooth. the notes of vanilla make it taste almost bourbon-like (which I don't mind at all). If you like smokey, peaty whisky, stay away from this though. It's much more of a lighter, clearer flavor.

17th November 2014

great taste and value.

This malt is amazing. Very smooth.

2nd November 2014

Good lighter fare

I cannot for the life of me taste any dish soap. I find it quite good. A touch light but not in a negative way for my tastes. Perhaps rinse the glasses better?

1st November 2014

Dish soap

Because it was a gift from my son I will give it a star. However, my first taste was "hey" tastes like dish soap. Check the Waterford glass. Not that, but too much alcohol and very little taste.Not recomended, I prefer a little smoke, maybe Highland Park.

25th October 2014

It's not bad...

I'm more of a smoky peaty kind of guy, but this isn't too bad. It's sweet and smooth, with lots of lingering fruity tastes on the tongue. Chilled is much better, just one ice cube seems to be right for two fingers worth. Overall, I'd say this is worth the 30 bucks I paid, but would prefer the peat I love so much!

24th October 2014

best 10 year

Best 10 year but try the 12 year and Quinta ruban. Easy to drink, good intro to single malt along with Glenlivet 12 and Laphroaig 12.

23rd October 2014

Not Pleased

I found it to have a harsh alcohol taste and not as much actual flavor.

7th October 2014


Unbeatable at the price. If you don't like this, you don't like whisky

6th October 2014


Do they even bother to store this in barrels or do they just keep it in a metal vat for 10 years. This is better than any of the cheap blend scotches but for a few bucks more you can get single malt that is 10X as good.

2nd October 2014

One word - boring

Fruity, not terribly smooth, hardly any flavor, zero mouth feel. If I'm trying to be cheap, Speyburn 10 is a better option. That's harsher, but at least it's interesting.

16th September 2014

Quality Reliable Malt

No wonder it sells so well in Scotland. Benchmark malt that never fails for me.

11th September 2014

Pleasant,...not terribly special

I believe. This is easy to sip, nice citrus notes too, but not something that screams "have another laddie."

5th September 2014

Not Smooth at all

I performed a blind taste test with 4 dinner guests. The samples included 4 different levels of Johnnie Walker and this Glenmorangie original 10 year old. The guests recognized Johnnie Walker Blue label as being the smoothest and had the best flavor. Johnnie Walker Black label came in second. Johnnie Walker Platinum label came in third and Johnnie Walker Gold label forth and dead last was this Glenmorangie. The Glenmorangie had too much of an alcohol bite and not much flavor.

18th August 2014

Best value malt out there...........

A very smooth drinkable dram....... Pleasantly spicy, fruity and not to creamy, just right. O.k, it's not that sophisticated on the palate, but still one of my favourites, and you cannot go wrong for the price of it!

26th July 2014

First taste - very middle of the road

Drinking straight-up, no ice, no adulteration - and it tastes like a mix of cheap whiskey that you can get for 10 bucks a bottle and a pretentious one that goes at 10 times that. Applying the laws of averages - it is not an Auchentoshan, or a Glenfiddich or a Laphroig, and neither is it as smooth as a blend from JW. Unless my opinion changes shortly, this would be the first and last bottle ..

12th July 2014

Very nice for a change up

I am a huge fan of the Islay's. This Scotch is, of course, no peat-bog-ashtray-in-your-mouth-died-and-gone-to-heaven Islay, but it is smooth, flavorful, and a nice diversion from my norm. I bought it on a whim and chose it for the decent rating and good price - and was not disappointed. My son, new to the game, enjoys it as well. I've also enjoyed numerous other single malts over the years and this ranks well among them. In fact, I liked it enough that I was looking for ratings on other Glenmorangie products to try (Quinta Ruban, Lasanta, Nectar D'Or) when I found this web page. I rarely make comments on the "interwebs", but I liked this reasonably priced gem enough to do so. Slainte!

1st July 2014

my kind of single malt

utterly reliable, you always know what you're getting - and what you're getting is something all Scots know is great value for money. A lovely fresh taste, fruity, balanced and a nice long malt tang on the tongue to finish. A real Desert Island Malt!!!

25th June 2014

First Taste

It is smooth, but it, well it just doesn't explode with flavors. Its just one burst of lemon, that takes forever to fade away.. Got a deal on this for 40 bucks, plus it has 3 samplers of older and different barrel scotches. For the same amount of money, actually less, you can go to Costco and get a superb bottle of 18 year old Highland single malt scotch. Ill drink this and enjoy it for what it is and then move on to the next bottle for tasting. Maybe there 18 year old bottles will fill the palate more.

25th June 2014

Damn good for the price.....

Smooth, fruity and very tasty.

18th June 2014


Just started carrying at our Costco, Palm Beach Gardens,Fl. Seems to be selling quite well.

17th June 2014

didn't like it

i heard that this is the best-selling scotch in scotland? i wonder why? i found it to have too much of an alcohol 'bite' to it, not smooth. and at 43% abv, i didn't want to add much water. it just didn't rock my world. will not repurchase.

29th May 2014

mr b evans

best i've ever had- smooooooooth

22nd May 2014


Love it
The color, like Lillet amazing
Floral ,light, yet mature.

17th May 2014

Smooth, fine drink

Just got this one as a gift from a good friend (a lady), having 10y Laphroaig in my backpack, so we tasted both. Quite a contrast of course. While fulfilling the description above, it doesn't lack subtle complexity. I'm rather peaty smoky fan, but this just tasted good and as many have written before - it's an easy drink, not only for ladies.

9th May 2014

New customer

This was recommended by a lifelong scotch drinking friend. I am not disappointed, a great value.

27th April 2014

Very yummy.

Was browsing the isles at the liquor store. Not into the peaty stuff like laphroaig, yet... I have a hard time enjoying that strong islay stuff. I like JW Black and Blue et al, and this stuff is smooth and very tasty! Great price too!

15th April 2014

Easy dram

Very good stuff, this will decently be one of my basics. You can keep on adding water, without loosing complexity. Impressing for a 10 year old.

14th April 2014

Easy drinking. Good for newcomers.

Very easy drinking. Nice to the palate.
If you are experiened drinker, I can understand the low rating.
However, as it stands, it's a very decent piece of whisky.
Love it!

18th March 2014

It's ok

there is nothing wrong with the Original and this is it's main problem. it's ok but bland.

11th March 2014

Awesome for price

the nose is excellent.....vanilla toffee marshmallow. palate is good too with the vanilla
and citrus notes. I absolutely love the finish as well fairly long and a tiny bit smoky with more vanilla and citrus as well as pepper.

1st March 2014

Newbie Whiskey Drinker

Tried Balvenie Double Cask, Glenfiddich 12, Glenlivet 12 and now this. This is by far more interesting, smoother and easier to have a second dram. Having said that, it's also quietly shy in the peat department, but I think that's why people love it. Peat is either entirely lacking or buried under the citrus/floral notes. Overall, I'd say if you want something easy to drink that l

17th February 2014

I'll try it again

I've been sticking to the uber-peat Islay scotches, but I picked this one up from a store that had no other selection and don't regret the small peat break. I enjoy it (especially the price.) I'm still craving a glass of Laphroaig 10 yr, but I'm pleased with this as a bottle to alternate with, so that my other whiskies last a little longer. For me, the orange peel taste is a little too prominent, but it's very smooth (I drink it with one ice cube; found two cubes to dilute it too much.)

Not Bad

A good everyday dram. Those with a more advanced palate will pick up the flavours, but I think a lot of the reviews on here are from new drinkers, or those that don't enjoy a dram and just want to drink.

This shit is awful.

very good, smooth whisky

24th January 2014

Smooth and tasty

I am a big fan of single malts. I have always seen Glenmorangie on shelves of the my liquor store, but for some reason never bought it. My son gave a me this bottle for Christmas, this year. I restrain myself from buying single malts all the time due to their higher prices compared to their American cousins. However, I can actually afford Glenmorangie 10 year old, on a regular basis.

Please don't change a thing, including the prices :).

Taste-bud teaser or flavour thermostat?

Always delicious; Sometimes makes your taste-buds work for the reward of deeper complexities, sometimes gives up its prize more easily. Reckon could be down to temperature effecting what it gives off: Unless, of course, it's the palate that has 'moods'. It's a bright cheerful whisky that'd be refreshing in summer evenings, or warming on winter nights. Lot going on for a standard price malt. Some people don't get it, but could be down to temperature or their not being receptive enough.

Good starting point

If you're new to whisky I think this is a good starting point as it goes down easy and the flavours aren't too overwhelming for the inexperienced. I fully admit to being a complete novice when it comes to whisky (though I have tried my fair share) but if I was to chose an 'everyday dram', this would definitely be a contender!

9th December 2013

Forget age statements, this whisky is delicious and complex

This whisky is a good starting point for people who like sweet liquor like port, brandy, etc. It is also a good starting point for people who like smoky whiskies, bourbons who want to ease their way towards the fruity/sweet world of port and sherry cask whiskies or softer/maltier speyside and lowland scotches. It's the fruit, honey, and vanilla notes that will excite someone useto Irish Whisky.

Smile.. you've just tasted the fruits of a love egg!
it begs the question why when all you have to do is try and fish it out if a can?!!
Doh idiot !!
first dram in craven a cottages halfway up the an field slope to bedmibgton.
could you at least try with easing it past the guard!!??
talk about Albert RN!
oh at least pretend to enjoy it by slurping hard!
Good night cap.

I love Scotch more than Ron Burgundy. For my <$50 choices, Glenmorangie reigns supreme. I'd stack it against my favorite $50-$75 choice, The Glenlivet 18 Yr Old.

(Prices in CAD)

20th November 2013

Decent and solid.

I like this. However, I only buy it when it is on offer? Why is that? Is it not that good? Is it not as fashionable? Is it too commonly available? I Can't figure it out... but I tend to plump for Balvenie or the Lasanta instead....

1st November 2013

Good solid whiskey

Had this and enjoy the smooth vanilla notes.

26th October 2013

Best Budget Whisky... PERIOD!

I picked up a bottle here in Miami,FL. for $29.99. A definate bargain. This is a very easy drinking whisky. I do leave the bottle open for 24hrs, cause this 10 yr expression can be a little restless when first opened. Its smooth,sweet and nutty. Lemons,traces of milk chocolate, fresh pastry, and the unmistakable freshness of florals and perfumes that Glenmorangie is famous for. If you let it sit in your glass for 15 min, The milk chocolate will creep up ever so slightly. Probably the most complex single malt under $40.00. Highly recommended, if you are on a budget.

18th October 2013

10 year old greatness

Haters are always around for the great, It's unavoidable. However they may yell that someone or something isn't worth your time and money, think and try for yourself. I personally love this Scotch for it's subtle complexity and long spicy finish, and no it does not I repeat NOT need to be chilled to enjoy it's wonderful flavors. To you who are looking for a great everyday dram, this is the one, and to the haters.......... no one is listening.

4th October 2013

My First Whisky

I have never been a whiskey drinker (except from winning a bottle after a rugby tournament on Islay and wasting it on a drunken night immediately after to numb the pain) however after doing some bodywork repair on a colleges car he gave me a bottle of Glenmorangie Original 10, I have always been a vodka drinker usually drinking it straight (expensive vodkas) and whilst watching my F1 off a backshift decided to try it.
Wow really surprised nice flavour and goes down well, so much so I went online to see different reviews as I now quite fancy getting a premium bottle.

23rd September 2013


A great tasting Scotch, deserves every compliment indeed. First tried straight. Smokey and hints of vanilla combined with charcoal. Got to admire the concentration of a wonderful single malted Scotch. A must buy again type, rather than a try first, regret later. Do not serve on rocks, but do try chilled and straight or paired with ginger ale.

14th September 2013

A quite good beginners dram...

Compared with other big name distilleries, this is a better entry than most. A little more assertive, a little more complex, but won't blow you away with either. As a whisky bar owner, I find myself going to this one when I don't want to think too much about nuances, but don't want a bland malt either.

5th September 2013

Not bad...

Smooth, sweet, with a hint of vanilla, chocolate... Got a 1l bottle for £35, can't complain.

18th August 2013


You can always recognize the Glenmorangie signature. I'm really fan of this distillary. This malt is a 10 years old matured and you easily feel this. Citrus, fruity with a delicious smell. Fresh and little spicy. Great whisky!!

20th July 2013

Great for this price point

For a ten year old its good, some interesting flavour notes maybe to much of vanilla but that's pleasant.

Comparing to its price point competitors a very very good drop and a staple of any whisky collection. Always replaced once finished very drinkable dram.

12th July 2013


Easy to drink. Tastes like vanilla and honey. Great finish

4th July 2013

95 out of 100

Nose:23. Delicate but complex. Creamy with a fruity nose. Hints of pineapple, peach and dried fruit. Very slight marzipan notes.

Palate:24. Creamy and sweet yet very gentle and delicate. Fruity and floral but neither overstated or understated.

Finish:24. An excellent and gently warming mid finish.

Balance:24. An excellent balance from a complex whisky. Delicate, gentle, smooth and soothing. Nothing overpowering.

Overall:95. An excellent whisky. Worthy of its price. A wonderfully delicate journey from buying the ticket to coming home.

31st May 2013

Citric whisky

Its very good experience for the price,citric, honeyed sweet and vanilla; delicate finish. I recomend no more of two ices for glass.

13th May 2013

Just not right

It's a rare moment to be saying this but having to choose between an unimaginative blend, like JW or Teachers, or this one, I'd take the blend... or maybe just settle for a glass of water instead.

2nd May 2013

Great scotch for the money

A very nice, easy drinking 10 year single malt. A nice alternative to a blend for every day drinking.

20th April 2013

No way thanks!

Fruity? It is just malty oaky and very very sugary stuff!

20th February 2013

Very nice younger Scotch

I usually expect some peat/smoke influence in scotch. This one has little/none. Instead it is light and sweet with a creamy smoothness that is so nice. This is the best selling single malt in Scotland for a reason. I love the simplicity that a younger malt offers.

8th February 2013

Pale Shadow of the Past

I have a major soft spot for Glenmorangie and I do not mind drinking this, yet I had a serious epiphany when I lined up this version against the previous version. Wow!!! If you all think that this one is tasty, you may not know how much of a let down this is from the much smoother, fuller, and more delicate round bottle version. I'm making the old version my bar staple.

8th February 2013

Easy drinking

Firstly, you have to remember this is an entry level scotch, it is not made to challenge bottles of 4 times the price. For what you pay its a very easy drinking and enjoyable Single Malt. Its uncomplicated and smooth with a gentle aftertaste. Its a great drink for anyone thats new to whisky drinking, in a nutshell - for the money you cant go wrong.

30th January 2013

Nice and Easy

I dink and enjoy all whisky, from the lightly flavored ones to the smoky peats. However, until tonight (12/1/13), I've never have, I've been missing out. I enjoyed a wee dram over one rock of ice and enjoyed a "nice and easy" drink of vanilla, caramel, toffee and marshmallow. I usually drink the other Glens, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, but after tonight's dram, I'm very happy to have the Glenmorangie in my collection.

13th January 2013


Maybe I got a better bottling because for the price I found this to be a marvelous whisky. It is wonderfully balanced and full bodied, and for a 10 year old malt has a surprisingly long finish marked with toffee and pepper. I can not stress enough how much I enjoyed the pepper notes in this whisky, truly great and something which is being replaced or superseded by peat nowadays. It is still a great fruity malt with apples, moldy/nutty orange, and citrus tastes with vanilla butterscotch aromas. Highly recommended especially if you can get it cheap in a supermarket. NB check out the 18 year old expression, very nice.

31st December 2012

Really Can't Go Wrong

Just special enough to be enjoyed by itself, and to be savoured. Quite a closed taste and benefits from ice/water. Toffee and Caramel, lovely Scotch. Would certainly recommend as beginner's Single Malt. Enjoy

23rd December 2012

napa valley COSMO

Had a wee dram this AM (1900 Glasgow Hours), my first. More fruity then Glengoyne,more aromatic than the Glenlivet, and more complex than the Glenfiddich..great to start with before dinner. the creamy texture and ethereal fruitiness is as haunting as the Scottish Cat of the highlands!! enjoy the pleasantries of this 10YO!

18th December 2012

You never forget your 1st........

Girlfriend, car etc and Glenmorangie was my 1st 'proper' whisky. Good dependable entry level dram and more refined than the Glenfiddich 12 yo and more flavoursome than the Glenlivet.

8th December 2012

Great mid scotch

Nice range of flavors especially when taken neat. One of my favorites for the price. I do not recommend over ice as you will lose the high notes. Still my go-to from Glenmorangie. If you like this you will also likely enjoy the d'or.

16th November 2012

love it

samoth taste

30th August 2012


I found this scotch to be dull, and felt it had more alcohol burn than much in the way of interesting flavors. Not a smooth scotch.

22nd August 2012

Love it....

Glenmorangie was my first initiation into good scotch. Having worked as a bartender and the awful stuff that we used to serve as bar scotch... Glenmorangie became my regular and was a great starting point to an almost obscene love affair with scotch. It's my personal "bar scotch" and the better ones, are consumed sparingly...

14th August 2012

Give it some credit

Glenmorangie original (10) is a decent staple whisky especially on an entry level basis. lovely sweetness and honey notes and for under £30. This isn't one to sit down with and explore this is a whisky made to enjoy in the most simple way possible. Drink it.

15th July 2012

Very good

On first taste I was surprised by the sweetness, but this is an excellent smooth whisky. I still prefer it to all the Glenmorangie wood finishes, especially because of the surprisingly complex and fragrant nose.

22nd June 2012

Fine Whisky

finer balanced Whisky, good light whisky for person looking to be introduced to the world of Malt. 92/100

26th April 2012

beautifully balanced

This is a classic whisky, the poor reviews here are undeserved (1 out of 10! Serve chilled!! WTF!!!). The balance and complexity is what makes this a world class whisky, ignore the haters this is renowned for a reason.

18th April 2012

Smoky Goodness

A great middle range whisky. Robust, smoky, rich. A great every day whisky.

21st December 2011



6th December 2011

could be better

I am not a big fan of this particular scotch.. it is simply overwhelmed with the "vanilla" flavor and I was unable to taste any other notes.. except cold temperature seems to bring out the flavors.. so perhaps if the bottle were chilled it could taste better.

8th November 2011


Excellent early summer dram. Citrus with sweet cream that becomes peppery. Spicy pepper citrus aftertaste lingers. Great on a warm spring day. Very enjoyable for the price.

28th October 2011

An old classic

As far as your run-of-the-mill 10-year old single malts go, this one is right up there with the very best. Love the citrussy notes.

27th January 2011

Spicy young malt

I simply just don't like it. Better to save for 21 years Glenfarclas...
