Awesome dram. Tried alongside the Glenlivet 18, Hibiki Master Select, Glenfiddich 15. All beautiful, but this won. So smooth and mellow.

And to think it's a value compared to a macallan 12

It seems Glenmorangie can do no wrong. It's worth the extra $20 bucks over the 'regular' 18.

Lorenzo
Lorenzo,
Glenmorangie does an amazing job with thier whiskys. This 18 YO is fantastic, oak, caramel, vanilla, honey notes, and super smooth. Worh the money!!
 
Jason
Jason,
Very happy with this. Taste is of a much higher price Scotch. I have never had a better flavor and finish in a Scotch at this price range. Well exceeded my expectations. This will be a new staple in my cabinet. Cheers!
 
Kyle
Kyle,
Nice, light, easy sipping scotch. No sherry but a smooth oak palate and finish. Finish is short-medium.

The house scotch.

Daniel,
Fantastic complexity. I'm not yet equipped to describe this. Probably my favorite so far, but spendy.

If I look up Glenmorangie 18 year old scotch outside of my account, you show it at 125.00. When I log in, and look it up, it cost 133.00. I want it at the 125.00 price.

Jason,
That's not a review, bud. Try reviewing here and complaining somewhere else.

Incredible highland scotch. One dram in and already a favorite. Okay but not too much. Complex and smooth. Oak, Carmel, lemon, and vanilla. Really exquisite

It's an oakier, more complex version of the Original. It's a wonderful dram and one of my favorites!
 
Dale

Very smooth 18 YO scotch. Very little to no bite after each taste.

Got this as a gift. I savored every last drop

One of my favourite whiskeys to date! So smooth and subtle, you must nose this great whisky, it smells great and tastes just as good.
 
Jon

Mmm Glenmorangie, you never fail to impress
 
Vincent
Vincent,
I enjoyed this so much I had a couple glasses very smooth, taste was awesome. Ive had glen mo 10 yr and 12 yr Lasanta and Lasanta is comparable. recommend without reservations
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Incredibly smooth; the initial honey taste transitions to a very light floral finish. No hints of smokiness to my palate; this one should be appreciated neat. Almost qualifies as a dessert.
 
Doug
Doug,
Sweet with oranges and subtle vanilla but runs a bit hot…a creamy finish gets a little overwhelmed by the heat which disappointed me. Very good but could have been so much better.
 
Jason
Jason,
It’s above average. I was told to try this out by a friend and it has been a good one for a decent price.
 
Mark

Best ever. Smooth

So smooth
 
Matt
Matt,
So smooth, shared a bottle with a cheese maker friend of mine while sampling some of his new cheeses. Went down a treat.
 
Clyde
Clyde,
If I could only drink one Scotch for the rest of my life, this would be it! Wonderful balance, and as smooth as it gets.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Excellent. Well balanced but with a slight sweetness towards honey and peach, but only slightly. No much smoke.
 
Shon
Shon,
This is a smooth and delicious whiskey, but not worth the extra cost compared to Lasanta or Quinta Ruban. If the price were more in line with those 2 offerings, I would keep it replenished. Not sure why it’s called “extremely rare” when it’s in Costco’s all over the US.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
One of the smoothest I've ever had. Honey and peach notes.

Nice, clean Highland
 
Peter
Peter,
Sweet raisin smell and flavor. Taste like figs and a cool touch on the tongue. Not smokey, but a smooth sweet short finish. Highly recommend.
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Extremely gently Whisky, beautiful notes of honey and figs, with dried fruits (caramelizad orange) and some spices. Once in the mouth you can feel some tropical fruits. Long aftertaste with a sweet finish

Nice nose and smooth. Overall was expecting more out this.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Holy shirt this is right up my alley. Right away you can smell raisin and vanilla. Taste has a little spice to balance out the sweetness and finish is smooth with one last bite and notes of fruit and lavender.
 
Dennis
Dennis,
I’ve been a big fan of Glenmorangie’s expressions , and this one is no exception. The extra maturation of the 18-year brings out the qualities of its core product and makes something truly exceptional. Sherry notes are prominent on the nose, but it still retains the soft citrus notes of the Original. Honey and malted barley hit the tongue at first, but then smoothly transform into a sweet, lemony custard midway, and ends in a medium finish with nutty sherry after notes. If you’re looking for a centerpiece in your whisky collection, this is it.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
nose: vanilla, oak, banana, creme brulee, a little lime palate: creamy, sweet, a little nutty, caramel finish: medium long finish, buttery. nutty, vanilla extract, coconut, a little oak, honey Overall: very balanced, highland with no smoke , didn't try in tulip glass though

Initial taste was what I expected, but a little strong on the floral notes in the end

Anthony
Anthony,
The drinkability is only bested by its elegantly bright flavor profile. Exceptional.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I was not impressed. Maybe mine was a bad bottling/cask? Nose was light and neither pleasant nor repugnant. Taste was lacking. Finish was short. Nothing terrible but not enjoyable. Almost as if they accidentally put 8 year old whiskey in the bottle.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Very nice smooth taste. Great price.
 
Eren
Eren,
Best scotch I've ever had so far.
 
guest
guest,
One of the most well balanced scotch in the $100 price range. While each person will taste different notes, I enjoy the light smoke against the slight honey sweetness. I recommend enjoying with a few whisky stones to give it a slight chill without watering down.
 
Mikail
Mikail,
An excellent dram from Glenmorangie and one to add to the whisky collection.
