The Original Glenmorangie

Variety: Malt Barley
Specification: The Original Single Malt
Producer: Glenmorangie
Year: N/A, 10 years
Region: Highland, Scotland
Price: $70

Appearance: clear, medium gold
Nose: clean, medium+ intensity, smoke, peat, cereal, marmalade, wood
Palate: clean, dry, warm, medium body (for scotch), medium+ intensity, woody, sweet, sherry, medium length.

This is why "The Original" single malt isn't necessarily the best scotch.  This particular scotch is lacking the complexity that a $70 dollar scotch should have.  I would not recommend this particular scotch, but Glenmorangie does produce other excellent scotch.

Quality: Acceptable - Good (too expensive)
