"There is an easy like Sunday morning-ness to Glenmorangie The Original. What comes to mind upon tasting is the soft and round nature to the whisky as it soothes and coats your mouth. The taste of honey and nuts is soon followed by a burst of zesty orange. As your tasting experience comes to a close, notes of vanilla and chocolate cream emerge."
