Thomas
Thomas,
Smooth like butter with a hint of citrus. Very smooth compared to other scotches.
 
Carlos
Carlos,
Some what disappointing! For a 12 year old, I found it bitter and with no more a desire to have a second drink!
 
Michael
Michael,
First sip packed more of a punch than expected. A wee bit strong on the alcohol. But after that it really opened up and became a real treat to sip.

Gary,
Excellent! The dark fruit notes of the sherry on top of everything already great in the original. Top notch for the money, smoother then Macallan.

Rex,
Good taste. A bit harsh on the tongue. Fruity taste. Has an aftertaste that I cannot place.

Very good. Carmel notes

Richard,
Smells pleasantly of prunes while caramel and vanilla battle for dominance, a hint of lemon zest. Mild at first, then there is a taste explosion, it burns slightly, and gives way to bark and burnt orange flavor, there is a definite smokey finish. I can see why they call this a chewing whisky, it makes you want to chew on the taste long after the dram is down. The after taste lingers for quite a long time and mellows and is very pleasant to mingle with. Reminds me of cigars; I feel like I need to be wearing a smoking jacket whilst enjoying this dram. This is a great selection for a smokey whisky. It is not overly strong of peat, but has a bold flavor that is very enjoyable. I would stock this in my bar as manly smokey selection.

Just okay. I prefer the Original. I think the sherry finish ruins it for me.

Smooth but a little bitter on the aftertaste.

Outstanding scotch. One of our favorites.

A hint of balanced smoke made this my favorite of a sample pack of 4 different Glenmorngie bottles!

Sweet and sherry, nice long flavorful finish. Very palatable for the bourbon connoisseur looking to step into Scotch

Justin,
I’m not a big fan of the original 10 year Glenmorangie but I like this one quite a bit. It far exceeded my expectations and beats the original 10 year by miles. I stayed away from Glenmorangie for quite a while because of the 10 year, but I found a good deal locally that had the 10 year, this 12 year sherry cask, and the 12 year port cask as a combo deal so I had chance to try them all side by side. Both 12 year versions are worth picking up. If they’re a 8/10, the 10 year is maybe a 6... maybe.
 
Justin
Justin,
Love this scotch. A little bit of water or an ice cube really makes this come to life as well.

Chewing whisky! Nose: oak, leafy, caramel Palate:Orange zest, brown sugar Finish: spice, long lasting spirit
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Not bad. I don't care for Sherry.
 
Michael
Michael,
Fruity taste and finishes oh so sweet. Reminds me more of an Irish whisky than the Scotch it is.
 
Mike
Mike,
Notably better than the 10YO, the sherry finish provides some delightful sweet and spicy notes to this expression.
 
Mark
Mark,
More wood on the nose. Fuller mouth. Some cream and dairy. Oak and some sour on the finish
 
Douglas
Douglas,
A good place to start for caramel-loving scotch drinkers. I'm never sad to drink this.
 
Jason
Jason,
Glenmorangie flair with darker sweetness.

Smooth and sweet with a slightly smokey finish. Lovely staple to add to our home at a decent price point.
 
Jonny
Jonny,
I really liked this. Very smooth, with a good “sipping” taste. The noticeable smell/taste of Sherry might be the only be a detraction for a few.
 
Scott

Loved the finish! A great scotch!

Good whiskey for those starting to get serious. Could drink this all evening.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Glenmorangie is too nutty and sweet for my palette. It's not bad, it's just not for me.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Not bad right out of the bottle
 
Kevin
Kevin,
I skipped selecting stars for this one. While tasting the first flavor on the tongue was nothing. I knew the spirit was there because of the texture but it’s was almost as if it hadn’t grown up enough just yet before it was bottled. Then a short mix of flavor and done before I knew what happened. This very well might be just something my taste buds didn’t register so it might be worth trying before committing to a big bottle. Someone else may absolutely love it.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Meh. Not bad, but hard wine notes all around and way to much alcohol burn front and back.
 
Barry
Barry,
This is my new "go to" scotch due to availability, cost, and flavor. It's deeper than the Glenlivet which is my other "go to". I like this for rainy evenings after (sometimes before) the kids are in bed.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Sweet, smooth, classic Glenmorangie flavors

Sweet kicking, with soft spicing leaving a warm and passion sensation between your lips... Taste almost romantic...!!! Nice single scotch!!!!

Great to sip; smoky flavor makes great sipping cocktails.
 
Wesley
Wesley,
Not for me. Yes it’s sherried but I can’t call it a “sherry bomb”. It is only finished in sherry casks and not aged in them like true sherry bombs are. It is also chill filtered. Others in it’s price point are not chill filtered. I hosted a tasting pitting this against two other 12 sherried Scotches (The Macallan 12 and The Glendronach 12) and this placed last according to all six participants all of which scored The Macallan 12 in second. Try a sample before buying a bottle.

Lasanta is my new favorite.

Sweet taste, the extra 2 years in Sherry cask is awesome. Long great finish
Eric
Eric,
Bright sweet nose. Caramel, honey, sherry and dried fruits. Rich and creamy, very smooth with no residual alcohol on the finish. Perfect way to finish the day/meal
 
Mikel
Mikel,
Drinkable if a friend gives it to me but to much Sherry flavor.
 
Russ
Russ,
A very nice single malt. A fairly decent flavor profile, nice on the nose. Very low cost for quality of of the flavor profile. Try this one out.
 
Scott
Scott,
OK, so we went to Scotland last year and distant relatives got me pointed to single malts. Been developing my taste for several types from various regions. Glenmorangie produces something north of 10 million bottles per year and not the quaint craft distillery but darn this is nice. I really enjoy the sherry caske finish and smooth end. Look forward all week to have a dram or two on Friday evening. Stopped at an Idaho liquor store and found it for $49 on sale so got two. Washington taxes would take it to near $75.
 
Paul
Paul,
I'm a big Glenmorangie fan. This is the first time I've had a bottle of this variant. I find that I hold Macallan 12 (sherry cask) as my baseline for sherry cask scotches, what everyone should aspire to for a standard. Lasanta 12 year could give Macallen 12 year a run for it's money. I love sharing a glass with friends to start out the night. I'll get this again.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Love it. Smooth, a lovely first dram in the evenings. It is right up there among my favorites.
 
Lorenzo
Lorenzo,
Glenmorangie is a big go to for me. Love all their expressions. Lasanta is smooth, semi-sweet, and with a great sherry follow through to the end. Great with a cigar!
 
Piotr
Piotr,
Exactly what I was hoping for today. Sweet, sherry bomb with oaky finish. Well played :-) Wonderful aroma. Great taste. Nice finish. It is really rare for me to appreciate taste more than finish and this is the case :) [lighter and sweeter than Glenfarclas 15. This is the same shelf for me to choose from. If I had to choose between those two I would take... both... well 1l of Glenfarclas and 0,7l of Glenmorangie]
 
Dallas
Dallas,
Not terrible, but way too spicy for my taste. Would probably mesh with someone who likes bourbon more I think.
 
Edward
Edward,
So good. Delicious from the moment you pour it in the glass. You can really smell and taste the sherry. Just the right amount of bite and a beautiful flavor.
 
Danny
Danny,
Definitely getting raisin on the nose. Love the sweet sherry, although I‎t could be toned back a smidge. Excellent single malt.

A very light and sweet drink that is a perfect fit if the mood suits it. I'll make this a regular in my stock if I can find it cheap enough.

Spicy and sweet - raisins and sherry

This is a true 10, sweet, with a hint of oak and vanilla. Just the right amount of heat for a smooth finish.

Bit harsher then other Glenmorangie blends
 
Shana
Shana,
Enjoy its bold character, but it comes on strong from start to finish. I personally enjoy my single malt scotches that take the palette on a flavor journey - a subtle unfolding of flavor spirals on the palette. This 12-year single malt from the Highlands was satisfying - it just isn't my personal preference. My favorite scotch is any scotch that creates intrigue from the start - bold in nose, deftly nuanced in flavor spirals that are genuinely detectable and each working in harmony to reveal its origins, and a long strong finish.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
I think these are usually priced the same as the Quinta Ruban, but found that this was not as enjoyable as the other. A bit more harsh going down.

The perfect dram after a long, hard day and at the end of a good meal. Lovely balance of flavors and a glorious, rich mouth mouth-feel. I love introducing friends to this beauty-especially those who think all "scotch" is smoky, peaty and briny. This dram quickly dispels that misconception!

Have had bad experiences with this one. Becomes almost stale after a while. Better off getting did ditch solera. If have the money get glendronach 15.
 
Zachary
Zachary,
One of my go-to bottles. Creamy, rich & sweet without loosing complexity or becoming cloying. All of the traditional Glenmorangie character & added dimensions of top notch extra maturation. There's always at least one bottle in my cupboard.
