The original expression of our elegant, floral spirit and the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. A ten-year-old single malt, Glenmorangie Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland’s tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks.
It is here, maturing for ten long years in a range of ex-bourbon casks such as our famous slow-grown and air-dried ’designer casks’ from Missouri, that our raw spirit develops a perfect balance between sweetness and complexity. Resulting in a mature spirit that is soft, mellow and creamy. Perfect for enjoying at any time.
|Fragrance is light, delicate and floral with traces of citrus, vanilla and some smokiness and a beautifully balanced flavor with honeyed nuts coming through and a clean aftertaste.

(Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Hay field golden color. Delicate aromatics highlight ripe fruits such as white grapes, lemon, quince plus a measure of spice, namely cardamom. Taste profile highlights the dry cereal grain/malt as the flavor slips easily into the finish, like a whisper.

Smooth and mellow, like nuts drizzled with honey or Bit O’Honey candy, with a light vanilla finish. Matured in Bourbon casks for 10 years.
