    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      The first impression is characterized by chocolate-spicy and sweet-fruity notes. A wave of chocolate, fresh peaches, apricots, oranges, hints of grapefruit, vanilla pods, red grapes, pleasant sherry aromas (dark fruits), toasty aromas, abundant spices (cinnamon & ginger) and oak wood stands out powerfully from my glass. The alcohol (46%) is very well integrated. A little patience pays off when nosing: The multi-faceted and harmonious nose reveals many more nuances even after 20 to 30 minutes. The elegant complexity is just fun.
    • Taste
      The texture of the Glenmorangie Signet is wonderfully velvety soft and creamy. At the first sip, a slight tingle (ginger) on the tip of the tongue is noticeable. The start is very full-bodied and sweet and spicy. Plenty of oranges, grapefruit, vanilla pods, hints of tropical fruits and sherry notes (wild berries, raisins) dominate with intense spices (cinnamon and ginger) and toasty aromas (coffee / espresso). Milk chocolate, hints of leather, a touch of malt, dark forest honey and mature oak notes complete the aromatic variety. The well-selected alcohol content blends seamlessly into the harmonious overall picture.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, sweet and spicy and chocolaty. Dark forest honey, vanilla, oranges, grapefruits and light sherry notes flash again. Plenty of chocolate with a touch of mint (reminds me a little of After Eight), ginger, roasted aromas, nuts and oak make the Glenmorangie slowly fade away. On the palate remains a subtle bitterness.

    • Nose
      Wow! First, wonderfully chocolaty-spicy. Hazelnuts. Oak wood. Some leather. Toasty aromas. With time in the glass, it is then slowly sweet and fruity. Orange. Rather dry Oloroso-Sherry aroma. Some caramel. An incredibly complex and elegant nose to spend a lot of time on.
    • Taste
      Mild and creamy in texture and texture but voluminous in the taste. The alcohol strength fits perfectly. First a lot of chocolate but sweeter than at the beginning of the nose. With vanilla and malt. Then dry sherry spreads and covers the tongue. Red berries. Oak. At the end of the tongue a touch of ginger.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Aromatic bittersweet. Chocolate and oak.
