Without doubt one of the best whiskies on the market

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
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.

7th January 2017
The best I've tried, all the way, All across the world Glenmorangie tops the rest
5th January 2017
my favourite scotch & loved by all served.
4th January 2017
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Hi.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 regardsPeter.Scotland is still the great
15th June 2016
Classic tasting and my #1 scotch! For last 4 years! I only buy this!
26th May 2016
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
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
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
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
Kinda tangy for my taste but solid finish and viscosity. A good sipper for the fruity palate.
31st December 2015
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
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
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
Four stars. Very satisfying
18th October 2015
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
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
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
Absolutely beautiful! An original. I can only think that the reserved and etc., can only 'be' better...
2nd September 2015
Es bueno, pero no muy bueno. Pero igual me gusto.
23rd August 2015
The tarlogians have it!!
22nd August 2015
Love it! Beautiful wiskey
18th August 2015
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
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 great dram for the money!
25th June 2015
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
It burns my throat and brings on heartburn.Jim
14th June 2015
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.-Ginutis
17th May 2015
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 breathing...my 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
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
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
not for me
13th March 2015
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
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
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
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
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
Taste like a cheap American Bourbon.yuck
7th January 2015
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
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'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
smooth, citrus notes are excellent, better than average peppery finish, a little light, but THE PRICE is a no-brainer..got a 1.75 for $63 USA
9th December 2014
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
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
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
This malt is amazing. Very smooth.
2nd November 2014
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
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
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 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
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
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
No wonder it sells so well in Scotland. Benchmark malt that never fails for me.
11th September 2014
I believe. This is easy to sip, nice citrus notes too, but not something that screams "have another laddie."
5th September 2014
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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
best i've ever had- smooooooooth
22nd May 2014
Outstanding Love it The color, like Lillet amazing Floral ,light, yet mature.
17th May 2014
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
This was recommended by a lifelong scotch drinking friend. I am not disappointed, a great value.
27th April 2014
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
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
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
there is nothing wrong with the Original and this is it's main problem. it's ok but bland.
11th March 2014
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
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'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.)
12th February 2014
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.
9th February 2014
This shit is awful.
26th January 2014
very good, smooth whisky
24th January 2014
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 :).
26th December 2013
forgot to give stars with previous review-- here they are
15th December 2013
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.
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
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.
26th November 2013
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
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
Had this and enjoy the smooth vanilla notes.
26th October 2013
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
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!!

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.

Easy to drink. Tastes like vanilla and honey. Great finish
4th July 2013
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.

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
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
A very nice, easy drinking 10 year single malt. A nice alternative to a blend for every day drinking.
20th April 2013
Fruity? It is just malty oaky and very very sugary stuff!
20th February 2013
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.

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.
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.

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 Glenmorangie...man, 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.

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
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
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
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.

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
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
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
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
finer balanced Whisky, good light whisky for person looking to be introduced to the world of Malt. 92/100
26th April 2012
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
A great middle range whisky. Robust, smoky, rich. A great every day whisky.

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