    Polished malts and an instant tang of orange peels. In fact, straight in to the glass this seems like rather a citrus-fest with both lemon meringue and key lime pies fighting for your attention. A little time spent relaxing in the glass and the deeper notes start to come through in the form of sweet and sticky liquorice and a real sense of charring or toastiness. Dusty polish and a rubbery aromas occasionally drift in and out in what is an seemingly ever-changing affair. Exciting stuff.

  6. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Roasted coffee, nougat, acidity, sweet sherry and pleasant woody aromas
    • Taste
      Begins something gruff and lax. Becomes very watery. Reminiscent of an Irish Pure Pot Still Whisky. Finally, creamy toffee notes and glowing sherry
    • Finish
      The finish is mild, creamy and rather short

    Big aromas of Speyside malt, tiramisu, and cherries with a
    touch of dark baking chocolate. I could nose this whisky all day and
    remain a happy man. Most whiskies do not have a nose as great as this
    one. Strike that, I cannot think of a non peated whisky with a nose as
    great as this.
    Awesome. The aroma notes transfer well as I take my first sip;
    the cherries, tiramisu and baking chocolate are all there. Each
    additional sip coats my mouth with flavor. This whisky is very smooth
    and very tasty. I love how its flavor seams to reach every part of my
    mouth with goodness. I also like how its uniqueness sets it apart from
    any other scotch I have tried to date.
    With Water

    It takes water well but I don’t detect much change. Looks like its complexity does not need to be coaxed out.

    Medium to long with hints of tiramisu.

    The high roast malted barley used has make this had a big impact.
    It’s smooth, tasty, and a very enjoyable dram. If this whisky had a
    lower price point I would buy it by the case. For now, I will be happy
    having a dram whenever the opportunity presents itself.

    "While Signet is sure to please or at least intrigue whisky aficionados, Glenmorangie hopes to take it to a wider audience. The taste is described as a velvet explosion while one can expect chocolate torte and treacle plum pudding on the nose." -


  9. Alex scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    "Other salient points about the Glenmorangie Signet are that it is created from a secret combination of the oldest and rarest Glenmorangie whiskys. The word "combination" is interesting here as it is quite distinct from "blend". Signet uses high roasted chocolate malt barley, is non chill-filtered and has an ABV of 46%.
