    A fine Glenmorangie release both in terms of presence and quality but overpriced as many "premium" whiskies these days. Still much better than JW Blue label for example which price is similar though it's blended whisky.
    If one is to find nuances of aroma and taste he should spend a little more time with his nose in a glass - this Glenmo is subtle and elegant.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Milk chocolate with hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. A touch of fine malted barley, then cup of english breakfast with a teaspoon of forest honey and a shortbread in the other hand. It is warm and cozy but not very complex.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Baked apples with cinnamon, sill warm bread with butter on, milk chocolate again, with chilli this time. Round, sweet & spicy, a bit too simple.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to long, warming, pleasant: dark chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, strong ceylon, Cohiba aftertaste.

    Lo and behold, I finally got to try the somewhat fabled Signet after all... and am a little disappointed. This one, with its optical presentation (heavy bottle + stopper and to me appealing visuals) but even moreover the chocolate malt used in its production as well as credentials given by fellow malt enthusiasts should have left a statement. But it did not so much. Weirdly enough for me I got more of the brighter, citrusy notes instead of chocolate or aromas of roasted malt like a light mixture of charred oak, old sherry and soft peat that is ever so desirable in my book. Overall I did not get any special notes which would set this one apart as super special in regards to Glenmo, unfortunately. And yes, for the record, not a bad malt at all and 46% abv. are always appreciated. Just not what I hoped for. Maybe not the best batch or it was greater 10 years ago or I just did not fall for the hype? Who knows, to each their own. Hopefully everybody who bought a bottle can enjoy it wholeheartedly. :-)

  8. kramimatsimoto scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    This whisky has become a constant companion of my whisky existence. Always a pleasure to drink and never losing its magic

    N - Coffee and chocolate with a high presence from start to finish. In between, dark fruits, vinous notes and pleasant nut aromas are noticeable

    M - Smooth entry, oily mouthfeel - not very fat, sweet. In the middle part, the malt prevails with strong roasted aromas, followed by espresso and dark nuts. Wood flashes, but doesn't take over.
    Departure is long and remains intense on the palate.

    Great bottle, great packaging...a great NAS worth the money for the extravagance.

  9. herby.usa scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The presentation of the bottle is something special.
    Bottle shape, packaging and I am particularly impressed by the cap (heavy, bulky).

    And the content - albeit NSA, colored/filtered - is utterly delicious.

    Summary:
    A magnificent "masterstroke" for an affordable price. And definitely an "eye-catcher" for the shelf.
    • Nose
      91 91
      The sherry with plums, sultanas, vanilla, coffee & cocoa, sherry, honey and Christmas spices comes with full force.
      Roasted aromas, oak spice, nutty notes.
      citrus fruits (orange, tangerine)

      I recommend a lot of patience/time and keep swirling the glass to get a lot of surface wetting.
      Very complex in flavors - a real sniffer.
    • Taste
      89 89
      The taste - first moment - has to run behind the nose. But here too, leave it in your mouth longer than usual and smell the glass at the same time.
      Instead of 46% - I personally think - it could have been a few revolutions more.
      The fruit notes show up again (as with the nose), cocoa and coffee roasted aromas are clearly noticeable.
      Christmas fruits (plums, sultanas, orange) dance in the mouth. Alternate with milk chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla and even a little mint. Malt, forest honey and oak notes round off the whole thing.
      Conclusion: Great taste experience, with a little more % the whole thing would definitely be even more intense.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium length with changing effects. Oriental mocha, cocoa, the fruity notes and soft bitter notes of oak.

    Chocolate notes from the malt variation. Wish it had an age statement.

  11. hlz30 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A gentle, smooth, sweet daily dram with interesting notes of coffee (and its wastes) covering nose, palate and finish.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Mocha, ripen stone fruit, poached pear, soil, rosted coffee wastes, light-coloured leather, glazed pineapple, rhaspberries

      Long and evoving. Coffee wastes, mocha, with alcohol reflux (should I simplified the description above as "khalua"?), and a hint of gentle wood smoke came out at last.

      On the nose, dried fruits, some hints of dried figs and chocolate. Another sniff and new notes are added, floral notes and again fruits, like orange, mango and peach, a rich fruit cake (it reminds me a good Portuguese Bolo Rei) mixed with some spices.
    • Taste
      91 91
      On the palate, expresso coffee and chocolate, the development comes with fruits a lot of fruits mixed in coffee, the texture is velvety and smooth. The second sip is much fruitier, tropical fruits, stewed fruits, and then becomes more chocolaty with caramel notes. It has a beautiful texture. It is quite sweeter and it is not overwhelming. Its is a really nice balanced and complex single malt.
    • Finish
      92 92
      The finish is very long, a basket of sweet spices, with nice “leite crème queimado” (a portuguese version of crème brulée), and tropical fruits with hints of coffee.

      A bit more anonymous than expected considering the nose, but the malty sweetness carries over. Could have benefited from a higher abv.

      Immediate strong whafts of mokka and coffee, vanilla and mint creeps in after a while.

    you clearly taste the chocolate note. i hope we see that more often in the future. i like it very much.
    enough depth. ABV is at good level. great bottle.

    only the price for a NAS is a bit high unfortunatly... and getting higher and higher

  21. MarcinCh scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet. Caramel. Then there is clearly chocolate, in a sweet version. Sweet, fairly light coffee with milk. Some spices and maybe ginger. In the second case, the milk chocolate stands out very clearly.
    • Taste
      Pretty sweet. Caramel. Sweet chocolate. Black coffee with sugar. Spices. Ginger. A trace of spices. Some nuts, rather hazelnuts.
    • Finish
      Pretty sweet. Dessert chocolate. Black coffee with a teaspoon of sugar. Clearly coffee. Coffee stays the longest. Coffee and chocolate. There is also some spice. Ginger, pepper, maybe a little spicy.

    The aroma is a sea of milk chocolate and black pepper in tandem with gingerbread cookies. The taste reflects the nose by adding caramel and grapefruit zest. The finish is long, rather spicy, chocolate-nutty.

    A very harmonious and rich whisky, the profile of the distillery is a little lost behind the awesome casks, but the nuances of the distillery slip.

    Nice, plenty of rich chocolate flavours, very rich and creamy. It’s almost as if I’m drinking chocolate milk, delicious. But as it goes with chocolate milk, the flavour is also a bit shallow and misses depth and long lasting flavour.

    Great chocolate-malty standard bottling with a nice strong orange aroma, which you can tell that some barrels over the age of 20 were also married.

    The notes are coming from the blind tasting.
    This is the most surprising and special Glenmorangie I've ever tasted. The whisky changes a lot in the glass, starting from garlic notes, continuing with the black pepper and ending with pure coffee with milk stage.
    I don't like coffee and don't drink it, but in this drum I enjoyed its taste.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Right out of the bottle: garlic with a touch of wood and black pepper.
      After 5 minutes in the glass - very dominant black pepper,
      After 15 minutes in the glass - capuccino
    • Taste
      88 88
      First 5-10 minutes in the glass - very dominant black pepper, with the touch of black coffee
      After 15 minutes in the glass - capuccino
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium length, more pepper, more capuccino

  31. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    I didn't think that I would find too much wood, but in today's form, that's just too much wood and too little whisky for me.
    • Nose
      spicy, sweet, fruity, light and ripe, plus a nice note of wood, spices, a bit sour, nutty, quite dry sherry, plus something like olives. Actually cute, but headstrong. Not wrong.
    • Taste
      the mouth screams oak, almost too much, you have really burned logs in your mouth, at least that's how I imagine it. The sherry is dry and in the background, the bitter, spicy oak notes are in charge and almost too much.
    • Finish
      dry, only subtle fruit, a lot of wood, a lot of wood. Oak above everything. Spices and oak dominate the dry, tart finish.

    This GM stood unopened in the showcase for many years.
    The first tasting was at a fair many, many years ago. It's time to finally open it up and taste it in peace and quiet at home.
    Slainte Mhath!
    • Nose
      89 89
      Classic sweet sherry flavors of dark fruits.
      Intense and voluminous on the nose: vanilla, honey, sweetness, cinnamon, chocolate / cocoa, mocha.
      Red fruits, apricots, tangerines, intense orange and an overripe peach.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Strong spiciness (cinnamon, clove) and very sweet.
      Coffee and chocolate flavors; light citrus notes, grapefruit - but not bitter.
      The sweet note is very difficult to interpret, mainly reminiscent of overripe peaches floating in honey and milk chocolate.
      Very creamy - but slightly drying out in the mouth towards the end (but no bitterness from tannins).
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium length with roasted aromas of coffee / mocha and chocolate.

      It's a shame a few% more alcohol would do that very well.

    Nice NAS, easy drinking and tasty in the aromas. However, I find the price very ambitious for a NAS
    • Nose

    • Taste
      Fruity with plums and peaches, transitioning into notes of chocolate, coffee, a little nutty and slightly bitter at the end
    • Finish

    Good whisky no doubt but very overpriced. Anything above 125€ and you are paying more than what you are getting. Nice syrupy sweetness and texture, soft, mocha chocolate flavors. Finish is weak and muted unfortunately.

  37. hogsheadwhisky scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The nose, the smell of the logo is very good. The concise chocolate and nut combination knows how to please. The aromas are very balanced, very round and harmonious. But he really picked me up at the taste. Such a great mixture of nut nougat dessert and an afternoon mocha with a bit of whipped cream. A real dessert malt, a whisky with coffee and chocolate cake. Or for a quiet evening. Absolutely no dram for in between. He needs attention and he demands it. OK. It is "only" a NAS filling and the price of around € 130 to € 140 is quite steep for a NAS. However, if the information is correct that whiskys from barrels with an age of up to 35 years were also used, the price may be put into perspective again. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether to buy or not. In any case, he's good.
    • Nose
      91 91
      The signet shows itself with a rich copper gold in the glass. The whisky hugs the edge of the glass in a very oily manner, including subtle leg formation. Milk chocolate with roasted hazelnuts - liquid Rittersport whole nut milk chocolate - those are the first associations that come to my mind, into my nose. After the first nutty and chocolatey impressions, dark fruits such as plums and dried dates as well as spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon emerge. A hint of a good, matured dark balsamic vinegar from Modena wafts around the nose in the background. Candied oranges and orange zest can now also be smelled. Towards the end, like a good meal, the little Italian mocha comes in with a dash of creamy whipped cream. The alcohol is very well integrated, no stinging or other alcoholic sensations such as freshness or menthol can be found. After the first few sips, I also have tobacco and leather in my nose. Really great.
    • Taste
      91 91
      The creaminess of the whipped cream at the end in the smell is immediately present when you try it for the first time, even in the mouth feel. Alcohol is absolutely not noticeable and yet the flavors shown are presented with a lot of punch. The initial sweetness is quickly replaced by a balanced potpourri of dark chocolate, roasted hazelnuts and coffee aromas. The spices from the nose such as nutmeg and cinnamon also come out now. The oranges become slightly bitter and turn into a grapefruit. The counterpoint to the harmony of taste is the spiciness of the oak that is now setting in. Ginger and light pepper notes can be found towards the end towards the finish.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish begins nicely and warmly. The chocolate gets a higher proportion of cocoa, and the espresso still sets the tone. The finale is medium to long. The aromas of the roasted nuts and oak linger longer in the mouth. At the very end the signet ends with leather associations.

  38. Captain.Islay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Well balanced and complex, the special roast of the barley comes out well, this and the wood do not overlay the distillery character so that there are also light fruity notes.

    It’s quite spicy, bitter (not in the boozy way) completely it’s own thing. I have to say i was a bit underwhelmed at first because of the hype, but i learned to appreciate it for what it is. The nose and aftertaste are truly outstanding!

      Full, but not very layered. Hazelnut praliné, mocha ice cream, vanilla and dark fruits.
    • Taste
      Smooth, full and creamy. Not as silky as say Glendronach 18. Charred oak, iced espresso coffee, stewed fruits. Sugared peanuts and fruits.

      A little more alcohol than I expected, tincture of oranges and their peels, coffee, almonds, rose marmalade, dried apricots, vanilla pudding, biscuits, strawberries, dark chocolate.

    • Taste
      81 81
      Thick whisky, taste very much in line with the aroma, with differences I would say that there is a lot more coffee on the tongue, a little less citrus and although they come to the fore at first, they are quickly pushed away by more dessert flavors. A lot of sweetness that eliminates the oak bitterness.

      very soft and round, yet strong, sherry and raisins are very present, behind them lurk behind other fruits pickled in alcohol such as strawberries and apricots, pineapples, oranges become stronger over time and convey slightly citrus-heavy tones, subtle caramel and velvety oak, there is hazelnut cream integrated, some green banana

    A very rich and syrupy desert dram. Full of coffee, chocolate fruit and cookies. The flavors are complex enough but still very approachable. The big winner her for me is the flavor as this is one of the best tasting scotches that I have ever had.

  47. TheWhiskyDungeon scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Very complex with many layers and flavors, clearly different from "conventional" whiskys, probably due to the different malt process and the roasted 'chocolate' barly.

  48. keizerjos scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful sherry-aged, soft Glenmorangie with coffee, currants and wood. As simple as I write that down, it is so difficult to put it in a bottle without any complication. Simple is not the same as simple. The extensive range of different casks from Glenmorangie tends to be sweet to very sweet but you can't fault them for that. The aftertaste is dry and a bit wry - but that's okay.

    This is most definitely one of the better Glenmorangies I've tasted.
    • Nose
      Full flavored and, in Glenmorangie terms of speaking, an intense nose. Peaches immediately. Also chocolate and a sweet corn-like flavor. Virgin oak and sherry oak both to be detected. Good balance. Not sensational though.
    • Taste
      Creamy milk chocolate like in those candy bars from ‘Kinder’. Red fruits, old furniture, and white pepper. Decent body. Gentle and balanced.
    • Finish
      Long. Sweet& sour finish. Polished oak, red fruits, sweet corn and vanilla. there is really a good balance between the different types of casks. Both did their part, both have their part.

    This whisky can best be described as sweet, very sweet coffee, without milk, with mixed cocoa powder (without bitterness) and orange liqueur. Great, just great! If you only put a drop of the malt on your tongue, it is like having liquid, sweet, dark chocolate in your mouth.

    In the tasting again sweet coffee, ginger sticks coated with sweet chocolate (without ginger spiciness), sweet orange liqueur and many, many spices up to the cinnamon.

    This malt is a masterpiece that the others in the distillery can't hold a candle to, and they probably shouldn't either, the composition is too unusual and independent for that!

    What a wonderful whisky. With lots of coffee and chocolate notes, it will seduce you into a silky-smooth taste sensation in a class of its own. I had been looking forward to it for a long time and finally André tested it for me as a video on YouTube. Conclusion: He was absolutely thrilled. Thanks again for the effort.
    • Nose
      All the notes of coffee, caramel, honey and spices dance on the nose. A kind of chocolate mint comes through and tempts you to take a quick first sip. A sherry cherry dessert on a leather plate. Very cool. Forest honey flavored with grated orange peel. Christmas is today! Great nose. Respect.
    • Taste
      When you arrive in the mouth, you are overwhelmed at first. Everything at once but very subtly interwoven. It takes more than 100ml to take it apart properly. Wow. I save the nouns for sherry notes on the chocolate coffee page. But I have to address this texture. Firm in the leather saddle with enough wood flavor on the whole palate and a rich, warm, silky-soft mouthfeel with aha effect. Very special. Respect to the master. Upper class whisky craft. Now I've forgiven the PLV too. The marginal price is forgotten. A great malt. Direct hit !!
    • Finish
      It stays medium to long on the palate with wonderfully spicy and typical nouns that appear on the whisky-chocolate side. This malt is a special experience and it made it onto our shelf straight away. House whisky. A big thank you goes to André for the big sample.

    Intensive and round. Insanely balanced and complex. By far the best Glenmorangie that I had in the glass so far.
    • Nose
      Sweet; Fruit; Honey; Syrup; Vanilla; Oak; Sherry;
      Wonderfully fruity and sweet; Fresh, blooming summer meadow and beautiful herbs
    • Taste
      Sweet; Oak; Sherry; tart; Herbs -> of which mint most clearly; Fruit; Spices (in the clearest cinnamon I would say); flowery fresh. The harsh note I would classify in really dark, pure cocoa.
      What a blast this malt
    • Finish
      Spicy; Oak; Vanilla; Honey; Herbs; tender-bitter, clearly towards coffee. Still sweet and spicy after that. For many whiskys, the tart is always there when it comes. Not here. It is at times harsh and bitter in the mouth, but then comes back full sweetness and already the tart part away. Hammer! I've never had it like this before.

  61. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Fun and tasty, but less refined than its price tag would have you believe. Not sure if I'd pick this over the regular 18-year-old if price weren't an issue.
    • Nose
      The typical bright Glenmorangie fruits meet darker roast notes: espresso (duh), dark chocolate, savory-and-nutty Oloroso. No overt woodiness, it's all pretty juicy and clean. Intense and present, but without any hidden depths.
    • Taste
      More heat than you'd expect from a bottle priced this ambitiously. Certainly can use some water, especially before it's about half empty. Okay, now for the positives: Glorious stone fruits: apricots, plums, peaches, then about halfway through, we shift toward the (equally immaculate) darker, roasted aromas: dark-roast coffee beans, high-cocoa-content chocolate, a pleasant tart/bitter aspect... It's all becoming rather stately, isn't it? Lovely, really, yet somehow I can't shake the feeling of things clashing rather than harmonizing. Everything's just a little bit too hot, too overt, too... un-subtle. Feels rushed somehow, though you can't argue with the overall quality. Impressive, but still somehow suspect, if you know what I'm saying.
    • Finish
      Neither overly impressive nor overly long. I'm sure there is some degree of batch variation in this NAS expression, but my bottle certainly seemed rather "young" in this regard. Let's put it this way: a nice malt if you're having it between spoonfuls of mousse au chocolat, but not as strong in its own right...

    First of all, I'm not a big fan of Glenmorangie.
    The 25y Quarter Century I found great, joo but it also costs a fortune.
    The exception in price / performance is definitely the signet, for a NAS is the extremely complex and that in almost all areas.

      Also here it goes on with Schoki & Orange, the fruits are darker than in the nose.
      The usual red fruits known from sherry casks, but fresher and not so violent, followed by a dry oak note.
      Chili and Eucalyptus are also discreetly represented.

    Wonderful whisky, quite complex and layered in the nose but simpler in the palate. Interesting blending work: the nose is with obvious sherry influence but the taste is significantly oaky, probably some virgin oak was used in the recipe. It takes time to get into this whisky but the result worth it: it's a really enjoyable dram. Quite expensive but on my opinion worth every cent.
    • Nose
      Sweet, dry fruits (apricots, figs), toffee, coffee, sweet orange, vanilla, milk chocolate, cinnamon, sherry feeling, water opens floral and honey notes
    • Taste
      Quite punchy, peppery, slightly sweet (nose imply more sweetness), oaky, fudge, nutmeg, ginger, grapefruit zest, some tropical fruits (hard to recognize which exactly)

      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.

    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: A significant cask influence. Vanilla from the American oak. A slight hint of leather. Some chocolate and fresh espresso. A touch of coconut and some dried fruit like sultanas and figs. Muscovado sugar and some baking spices.
    Palate: Crème brule with sweet vanilla crème and brown caramelized sugar. Baking spices again. Cinnamon is present. Hints of dried fruits and oranges. Finish : Sweet and spicy. Coffee and chocolate and dried fruits. Medium length.
    The use of American oak for the sherry casks is successful here. An elegant heavily sherried dram. But there is no dominant dry bitterness. That makes it a pleasure all the way. It is very much a modern designed dram. That is not always good, but here it is quite successful albeit a little too well behaved.

    It is expensive, but for 110 – 130 euros it definitely is worth the money.

    Nose:
    This is light, delicate, but very good! Wood, oak, chocolate, leather and wood wax. There is also a fresh note here. Some vanilla and citrus. But straight after the fresh note there are these wood shavings again.

    Taste:
    Wooohw! this is really great. It gives nice and subtle sherry notes, a burst of red fruit, followed by dark chocolate notes. Very very well made.

    Body:
    That could have been thicker and more oily, though.

    Finish:
    medium length. Again quite a lot of chocolate and a hint of red fruit again. Fades away a bit dry and with a sour and wood note. All in all quite pleasing.

      Very woody with hints of bitter chocolate, espresso and ground coffee as well as ginger, vanilla and coconut. It also contains some fruity notes like dried prunes and raisins. After a good minute or so some peppermint notes were reaching the surface.
    • Taste
      The woodiness continues in the palate as well. Cinnamon and vanilla from the American oak and also some bourbon vanilla is noticeable. It's not all heavy because it goes into some fruity flavors, reminding me of blood oranges.

    Elegant presentation with a beautiful bottle design. Taking the price out of the equation this is a wonderful whisky. Well-balanced between creamy sweetness and spiciness. Take a big sip to fully experience its taste.
    • Nose
      Very round indeed, the alcohol not too present, with sherry, cocoa and vanilla. After a couple of minutes in the glass, a first sip and taking a deep breath, a fruity note emerges. Yellow fruits come to mind, more reminiscent of apricot jam than oranges.
    • Taste
      The cocoa smell turns into a milky chocolate taste, with a slight bitterness hinting at cappuccino. More spicy than you would have expected after the sweet smell.

    you´ll have to be in a very peaceful mood, because this one is a tad too round for everyday. some might call it boring but for me it is not.
    it´s not demanding at all, still complex and very enjoyable.
    maybe a tad too much oak but that´s what it keeps it vibrant.
    90/100
    • Nose
      round. that´s the first word that comes to my mind. it´s indeed wonderfully harmonious with a lovely semi-fruity sherry influence mostly on (dried) apricots. hints of vanilla, a little ginger and an uprising oaky note. isn´t there a little smoke too? but that might as well be the oak. toasted bread and apricot jam. a hint of honey.
      can a whisky smell thick and oily?
    • Taste
      less fruity than you would have expected, again on apricot jam, the oak is nicely balanced and gives a perfect counterpart to the fruit.
      creamy to oily mouthfeel and very spicy on cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.
      on the second sip the oak is much louder and maybe a tad too heavy.

    A round, extremely soft, creamy whisky. Very pleasing and without any edge. At the same time I believe Glenmorangie when they say that older barrels were used here. You can feel it clearly.
    Overall, Glenmorangie is now too soft and reserved. Therefore, it is not enough for me for a top rating.
    • Nose
      A comparatively restrained, elegant nose, the age can be felt directly in the first nose, some oak, bright fruit, peach, subtle sherry, sweet grapefruit, very light and soft as it is for a Glenmorangie, now tropical fruits are added, pineapple , Coconut, vanilla, now sweet blackberries, raisins.

    This is a brilliant dram. Utter satisfaction! A fantastic balance of
    sherry, fruit, rich spices and roasted aromas, with a smooth, soft and
    syrupy texture. The unique roasted chocolate barley malt has added
    another dimension of flavours making this beauty a perfect dessert
    whisky after a good meal. Sublime and complex. Sit back, relax, and
    enjoy this gorgeous malt!

    • Nose
      An intriguing sensation of sherry flavours, deliciously mixed with dark
      fruit, plums in particular, and luscious oranges. Treacle toffee and
      vanilla custard arrive, complemented by delicate milk chocolate and
      notes of fresh coffee. Fine cinnamon and tender maple syrup with a
      considerably roasted edge in the back. A smooth and gorgeous nose!
    • Taste
      Soft and creamy with lots of ripe plums, sweet vanilla custard, followed
      by lingering and warming spices - cinnamon, oak, and a hint of white
      pepper. Then a massive load of dark chocolate arrives, superbly mingling
      with notes of orange peel and cocoa towards the roasted slightly bitter
      sweet finish. Succulent and very delicate!
    • Finish
      The finish is long, deliciously sweet and creamy. Sticky plum jam, with
      traces of blackberries and orange peel. Silky aftertaste with cinnamon
      and slightly dry oak. Smooth and rich.

      WITH WATER: Fresher and the
      nose with a few drops of water. The chocolate flavour becomes more
      prominent taming the sherry aroma and the fruitiness. Creamy but
      signficantly intense on the palate with a massive load of hot spices -
      oak, cinnamon and black pepper. Dark chocolate lingers towards the
      finish with a delicate fruity sweetness in the back. The finish is
      slightly shorter. Stays sweet with a warm aftertaste of oak, spices, and
      gentle notes of walnuts.

  119. EarlMobile scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    The whisky actually needs something in the glass, then it is very fruity with some spice and even some vanilla and oak notes are to taste. However, the certain "juvenile sharpness" in the finish hardly diminishes and also the won flavors evaporate again quite fast, if one leaves the whisky (still) longer. So all in all an average whisky - nothing special.

    Signet is one of the whisky world's great mysteries to me: a streak of hit reviews and a very pretty bottle led me to it, but in the end I felt as if I'd found fool's gold instead of the actual treasure trove. The whisky is overall slightly bitter, as if there was an accident involving Glenmorangie make and a cold coffee. The stuff isn't flawed, hence a score beginning with 8 but when compared to drams that are half the price or so (Glenfarclas 21 for example) the only thing drawing me to Signet is the admittedly very nice packaging. It's not a bottle problem either since I've sampled several with at least a year in between.

  124. Blo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    It's very good, with different aspects of Glenmorangie. Better than the 18yo for example, probably because more original. The burnt wood and chocolate feelings are really nice.

    Despite missing age a very nice whisky. The roasted aromas unite in a very unique way with the sweetness and form a very independent character. Especially the lack of bitterness in the roasted aromas makes it special. The manufacturer speaks of the use of heavily roasted "Chocolate Barley" - it actually seems to be noticeable. I like it!
    • Nose
      Freshly ground coffee beans, candied oranges and raisins. A very interesting roasted note, without a trace of bitterness and somehow chocolaty. The strong roasted malt? Behind it strong vanilla, fresh wood and some glue or solvent - like Virgin Oak or 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Casks. That could be the mentioned designer barrels. Fresh summer flowers and delicate lemon from the distillery character of Glenmorangie. The alcohol is well integrated.
    • Taste
      Honey sweet and creamy, the alcohol is well integrated. Raisins, grapes, strawberries, milk chocolate - the sherry barrel takes the lead. The coffee comes immediately behind and brings pleasant roasted aromas without bitterness.
      At the second sip more oak spicy with pepper and ginger.
    • Finish
      Long and characterized by dark chocolate and Italian espresso.
      Sweet honey and the ripe fruits from the sherry barrel behind it.

    Tasting Notes and Comments by Glenmorangie;

    Aroma: A strong Aruba espresso fused with a treacly plum pudding, rich with sherry, and candied orange peel.

    Taste: A contrast of rich sweetness with an explosive crackle of sizzling spices and bitter mocha.

    Finish: A fresh spring-like breeze of mint with a bright citrus lemony-green quality.A fusion of unique and rare elements, and clouded in secrecy, Signet is the culmination of a lifetime's experience. A blend of our oldest whisky - distilled over thirty years ago when malting still occurred on site – and spirit matured in a selection of the world's finest casks, this undoubtedly is the richest whisky in our range. Of course, whilst the exact secrets of its production are known only to our whisky creators, we can tell you that Signet's melting sweetness and explosive spiciness is, at least in part, caused by our unique roasted 'chocolate' barley malt and the 'designer casks' made bespoke for Glenmorangie from American white oak. Non chill-filtered.

    This new Glenmorangie Signet is the new "flagship" of the Glenmorangie Distillery. Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie distillery manager has a dozen years in silence to this new creation worked before he was satisfied and the result of his other board members wanted to propose. He has a mix made by using grain from the immediate vicinity of the distillery with a 20% "chocolate" malt. This malt has the name "chocolate" given by the strong roasting of the grain and thus get a very dark color, which is subsequently used in making beer Stout. For the maturation of malt, Bill Lumsden mainly made use of ex-oloroso and ex-bourbon casks from the Ozark oak and also some of other wood-derived vessels. During 10 years matured in bourbon oak barrels and new and then supplemented with even up to 35 years old Glenmorangie whisky. It is a very complex whisky.

    A  gathering of unique and rare raw materials, and enveloped in mystery.
    The
    Glenmorangie Signet is a closely guarded secret, the culiminatie lifetime of
    experience. A
    blend of Glenmorangie`s oldest whisky-some are distilled 30 years ago!
    - And aged in

    The Glenmorangie Signet was made from roasted chocolate malted barley - extra strong roasted and malted cereal. After maturing in fresh white oak barrels, Oloroso sherry and other wine barrels were used for ripening. There is no age. But it should also have been used very old barrels. The nose shows cocoa, dark fruits, ginger and some cinnamon. Clearly recognizable the influence of sherry. Beautifully balanced on the palate, mild, sweet and spicy. The finish is medium-length multi-faceted.

    The nose was enchanting, the palate fine and the finish
    more or less okay. All in all a beautiful whisky and the best Glenmorangie I
    have tasted to date (on par with the Astar). This dram deluxe will take a
    serious bite out of your whisky budget though.
    Rachel Barrie clearly knows what she is doing (which is why I was happy to
    learn that she joined Morrison-Bowmore Distillers in October 2011, meaning many
    good things to look forward to from my favourite distillery).
    • Nose


      The nose is surprisingly perfumed. There are clear
      sherry elements (raisins, orange marmalade, cherries), as well as the typical
      spiciness of new oak (ginger, cloves) and bourbon traits (vanilla, honey). But
      there is something underneath that reminds me of after shave (or is that the
      shape of the bottle playing games with my mind?). And chocolate. And roasted nuts. And Arabica coffee.
      And candlewax.
      And, and, and. This goes on for quite a while. Very
      complex and simply delicious.
    • Taste


      On the palate, it is the wine influence that hits you first,
      immediately followed by very sweet honey, vanilla, oranges, Christmas cake,
      Turkish Delight and chocolate. Midpalate, the spices return. Slightly oily.
    • Finish


      The oak takes things to the next level in this long
      and drying finish. Tannins and nutmeg until the bitter end.

    in Signet has been made using a unique heavily-roasted Chocolate Malt
    that really beefs up the rich flavours. The packaging is very
    impressive too.

    Love this scotch for the chocolate notes and for all around dessert.
    • Nose
      Chocolate and rum, with notes of honey and nutmeg
    • Taste
      chocolate malt, ground coffee, pears soaked in rum, dried fruits
    • Finish
      more chocolate and roasted walnuts, nice finish for a Glenmorangie. The ABV is not bad at 46% very drinkable

    Hope this helps on this version from Glenmorangie. If you like chocolate you will like this scotch. It has hints of spice like cayenne and cinnamon.

    Only one word is enough to describe this beauty,
    ...............................................................Nice !

    Wonderfull after taste. This stuff is on fire !

    Some refer to notes of chocolate and coffee, I don`t taste them really in it but I am not a coffee drinker and not really a chocolate fan, the hints are, if they even exist, so low that it it does not detract at all from the excellent whisky, tops !

    Really great smelling whisky but the taste is like cold coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker so for me the taste is just terrible.

    Great, just great!
    • Nose
      Complex, with aromas of fruit(oranges), honey, vanilla, oak, sherry and marmalade. And pepper as well.
    • Taste
      Very sweet, honey, oak and chocolate, also coffeeish, again the pepper!
    • Finish
      It's a rather long and exciting finish and I love it.
