J'Nai raves about Glenmorangie X for its warmth and character: “X has such well-rounded characteristics that are easily recognizable to beginner Scotch drinkers and developing palates. It doesn’t give off too much heat or burn your nose, and the warm sensation of tasting the whisky is accompanied by chestnut and orange flavors, which gives extra character to anything it’s mixed with. The malty, almost ‘tea-like’ scent and taste is indicative of the malted barley and meshes well with other flavors in cocktails, especially citrus.”
