A lovely expression of Glenmorangie is the Signet. This was the third time I think I got a taste of this one, and first time to get some notes on it. It did not please me before, but now I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely dram opening up before me.
Another one that is not a good one to taste at festivals it seems and needs it time to open up to me. What can Glenmorangie tell us about this one?
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.
