    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.

    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.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Chocolate, marzipan, sugared strawberries, coffee, orange, peach, a spicy note that reminds me of rye, green grapes (short association with white wine), some rose petals

      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.
      Overall, very consistent the part.
    • Finish

      dry-orangy, medium long.
      For a NAS with 46% but neat

  5. Kaleva scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    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)
    • Finish
      Long, mouthwatering, spicy, oaky, sweet, a bit nutty

  6. Kensay scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A good balanced sherry molt, quite drinkable, but not causing too bright emotions.
    • Nose
      The nose is classic sherry, light, alcohol almost does not feel, dried fruit, ripe pear, very balanced and unobtrusive
    • Taste
      Dark chocolate, some spices, dry wood, some citrus
    • Finish
      Vanilla, some spices and dried fruit, woody notes
