Glenmorangie Signet Bottling Note

A superb, beautifully packaged Glenmorangie. Signet is distilled from malt with a good portion of chocolate malt too. Chocolate malt is heavily roasted malted barley. Some of this whisky was also matured in virgin oak casks.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Chocolate raisins, an old-fashioned cocktail, cocoa. Peels.

Palate: Sweet, syrupy cinnamon, dries, huge cocoa, oranges, lychees, malt.

Finish: Dries and becomes pleasantly rubbery, fruity.

Overall: Utterly superb.

User Reviews of the Glenmorangie Signet

Eh ??? Bourbon you say ???

I don't know what was in your Glenmorangie Signet bottle but it certainly wasn't Signet !
Just look to the left of this screen and look at its awards.. What had you consumed before you had a dram of signet as this could of confused your taste buds. I can't say for certain but I've had quite a few bottles of this and they have all delivered out standing tastes and nosing. Have you had Signet before ? Was the nosing the same as the last sample or bottle you had as this will tell you what to expect. Glenmorangie signet has chocolates and Coffee aromas and also in taste and is thick and malty with some oak and fudge and is quite different to the normal speysiders.

My taste of this is way off I guess

I smell and taste Bourbon. Smooth, sure, but not the flavor profile I was expecting

28th August 2015


I just can't say enough good things about this. The smooth mouthfeel and the complex chocolate notes are probably the highlights but this is just a winner all round. One of the very best single malts I've tried. These things are all very personal so others' mileage may vary but it's like Glenmorangie designed this to my dream specifications for a whisky.

17th July 2015

definitely unique

If you like a chocolate tasting scotch you will love this. The finish isn't as long as it should be for the price, but it is tasty

23rd May 2015

to "the last, the colour and the bottle"...

WITH ICE!?!? What are you doing adding ice to a 30+YO £125 single malt?!?! It's not Johnnie Red!

No wonder you couldn't taste the chocolate.

11th May 2015

the taste , the colour and the bottle

picked one bottle from Singapore airport , it is very well presented , holding the bottle is privilege , and the taste unfolds with ice , and frankly it was not chocolaty , i found it extremely sensible and matured drink , lives to your expectations and will definitely grace up your winter evenings

Tastes really good

...among the best...

Smooth And Refined - Wonderful.

Tonight's nightcap was a dram of "Glenmorangie Signet". The taste was mildly chocolately with hints of citrus. Easy drinking and nice to let sit on the tongue. Though I smelled more of a chocolate the description says espresso like notes on the nose. Like the other Glenmorangies I've tried it fits in the description of a dessert whisky. The whole experience is smooth and refined. It is going on my list of bottles to get and keep in reserve.

Not for your wife

My wife really does not like scotch. This Xmas I purchased two bottles of Signet, one for me and one to hide from my wife so I wouldn't get in shit from her for spending so much on scotch. After Xmas dinner I cracked the Signet. The review's below are right on the mark. My wife tried it and now I hide the other bottle for a new reason. A MUST TRY...

Elegant is Right

This is very substantial on the palate. A beautifully round, creamy dram. However, do not dismiss the 18 Year Old, which I believe is equally as enjoyable in its own right for a little more than half the cost.

29th October 2014


This has to be one of the smoothest whiskies out there.
Perhaps a bit too subtle for the price. But theres no doubt the flavours come through and the nose is awesome, like a form of fruity toffee.
The chocolate element is a bit of myth for me mind, more of a sherry influence (dried fruit)"not so much oranges though,if any?" , with hints of caramel and vanilla.
Would definately recommend and can understand why alot of people would enjoy this over your standard range, younger whiskey.

3rd October 2014

WOW !!

First experienced in one of those taster trays in a pub on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Left the wife sitting there and ran out to an off licence - he had a bottle but I decided it against it at the time as it is NOT cheap. It remains however my favourite favourite malt, and recent "large ones" at both Royal Dornoch GC and at The Open at Royal Liverpool in the marvellous Glenmorangie Village confirmed my judgement. Master of Malt offers the best price I have found it at - I just need approval from her indoors now to invest in a bottle !!!

31st July 2014

A very special malt

The last review was meant to have a 5star rating,buy a bottle of this and a bottle of BenRiach 16 year old.

20th July 2014

A very special malt

This is a very special malt.Bought as a present by one of my son this was a nice surprise .An amazing whiskey with a mix of complex flavours that changes as the palate settles.Simply superb.

20th July 2014

The best no age statement dram in the world !

This dram is sublime and has all the hall marks to become a legendary whisky. I'm not going to bother with all the taste descriptions as I believe it is for you to discover but I would like to tell you all it is that good I'm planning on spending over a thousand pounds on 10 bottles for my own private reserve and I will state this fact when Glenmorangie stop making this in the future and they will, this will rocket in price and will be expensive as it becomes a legend as many of Glenmorangie's whisky expressions have done before !.

17th July 2014

Top of the Mark!

i just don't 'do 10s on ratings, but if I did, this would be it. Taste tested this gem at a new eclectic whisky & "local brew beer" bar & was floored. a couple of years ago I splurged on some 30 yr old Glenmorangie while in Vegas (rumor was they had just a few bottles they found leftover from the Rat Pack days @ this venerable chop house @ the Golden Nugget) but Signet was rich & warm where the 30 yr old SMS had been more smooth & angelic. the Signet warmed & pleased, just about making me believe I couldn't likely find a better ounce or two of joy 😎. enjoy if you can!!!

29th June 2014

A Whole Other Level!

I received this bottle as a gift from someone who knows I have just recently started dipping my feet into the malt pool. Wow, just WoW! This is bigger, yet more nuanced than any scotch I have ever had before. My exp is limited: HP 12, Aberlour 16, Balvenie 12 dbl-wood, etc. This was in another stratosphere. I poured myself a dram and stopped trying to "figure it out," and just enjoyed. SEXCEPTIONAL!

I will definitely be looking forward to pairing this with my favorite Cubans and/or after a nice meal.

28th March 2014


Probably my favourite whisky of all time. One for special occasions only. A real experience.

26th March 2014

Special Bottle

This is a very special bottle. It is smooth and rich. There is no harshness at all. I don't recommend sitting at home drinking glass after glass of this stuff. It belongs in a place of honor. Share it with your friends, celebrate, do tastings.

7th March 2014

Top 5

People comment about and praise this great scotch just to drop it at the end because of it's price. I do believe as a scotch drinker, regardless of it's value, once a good dram passes through your nose and palate, if it satisfies, don't regret. This dram is one of the best, regardless.

27th January 2014

my new year Dram -2014

Got this as a present from my children at New Year...

Its superb ... 2014 is going to be excellent !

6th January 2014

Christmas present

Had my first taste of the Signet as a freebie after a meal at my favourite restaurant. Have now got my own bottle thank you darling whiskey and water and definitely no ice

4th January 2014

Christmas Tipple

Wow, just cracked the bottle open and me and my long whisky drinking friend were very impressed...a perfect pre, actual and post Xmas drink, very nice, very happy :-)

20th December 2013

The Closer

Tasted Signet at a tasting not long ago. It simply closed the session, just as it would a great meal - not served before or during, but as a good bye to cap a great meal with good friends and family. The strong finish preceded by a sweetly flavored chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, and raisin left you satisfied and looking forward to the next such occasion.

29th October 2013


Its just stunning!!!

22nd October 2013

Yes please

I got to try this whisky this past week at a Glenmorangie tasting at a local liquor store and had the opportunity to meet Glenmorangie's distiller. It was really a treat. I haven't been drinking Scotch very long and I'm still trying to figure out what all the different tastes are, but this one was one of two that are far and away my favorites (the other being the Balvenie 21). Well worth a try.

6th October 2013

Men only?

I loved it, my wife found it too heavy. I agreed with her, allowing me sole access to the remainder! Have to say the 18 year old remains out in front for our collective taste.

31st August 2013

Father & Son

Signet is simply a different scotch. We never thought we would use this terminology --- but we called it a "dessert scotch". But just because it has a sweet nose and an subtle but definitive chocolate and coffee background flavor is no reason to minimize its importance. This is a GREAT scotch and BELONGS in a well rounded cabinet.

22nd August 2013

Amazingly complex

I can tell that there is some old stuff in there! It's wonderful because it has a different nose, taste and finish all together. It's full, complex and the initial open when I nosed it resembled a bourbon. I give it a 95!

3rd July 2013

@ Jim Murray - Whisky Bible 2013

The score in question was from the 2011 Bible and therefore a little out of date - we still believe that this is an absolutely fantastic dram though!
- The Chaps at Master of Malt

13th March 2013

Jim Murray - Whisky Bible 2013

Sorry but I need to correct your statement about its 'Murray' score in the whisky's description. In the latest Jim Murray's Whisky Bible (2013), this whisky scored only 80 - I think your statement claiming it scored 93 without referencing which year is more than a little mis-leading...

7th March 2013

Advice needed before I try

I have a sample that I want to drink. I would usually put 3 or4 cubes of ice with my whisky. I was recently told by a Scottish barman that ice hides the flavour and all whisky's should be drunk with an equal part of room temperature water.
I don't like my whisky neat as I find it to fumey.
What are your thoughts on this?

2nd March 2013

Smors Delight!

First thought when I tasted this was that it was the most unique Scotch that I've had. Our tasting group tasted Signet along with several other bottles in the price rang and among the highlands it was a hands down winner. It tasted like smors around the camp fire with chocolate, marshmallow, and cinnamon flavors, but none of the flavors were overpowering--very well balanced and a nice smooth finish. Even if highlands are not your preference this is worth a taste just for the uniqueness.

9th February 2013

Good, not great

Reading the comments on this one, I think see where Glenmo were going on this whisky. Yep, I like it. I just don't think it's a whisky designed for avid malt maniacs, who certainly aren't gonna want to plunk down $200. For Glenmo regulars, this is a nice upgrade from, say, the 18. Thus, I would encourage Glenmo fans to give this a shot. To those who think this is the best whisky ever, I would suggest that they immediately begin sampling more a responsible way, of course!

8th February 2013


Does not really taste like chocolate, but has a lot of taste and is well rounded.
Has some similarities with good cognacs. Goes well with chocolate and marzipan.
Other whiskies I like are Talisker 18, The Macallan 18 (Sherry cask) and Glenrothes 1994.

3rd August 2012


In our house we have two opened bottles and of course there is a very good reason for this. We save it for very special occasions e.g. birthdays, Christmas and when my stepson returns from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. What can I add? Oh yes! Sublime and sumptuous, the very finest whiskey we have ever tasted; it is nonpareil.

27th July 2012

One of the best!

I have tried it once,and it was heavenly.It should be had on the rocks.

3rd July 2012

Tried a sample yesterday

Let's just say I will be buying a bottle

13th January 2012

A masterpiece!

Undoubtedly one of the best Scotch Whiskys I've ever tried!
On the nose it is complex, dark chocolate, coffee, woody and lightly caramely. On the palate it is mellow, mouth-filling and velvety with the chocolate and woody notes predominantly coming through. Rubust, slightly oily and long-finish. A masterpiece!

14th November 2011

Chocolate Malt?

When I heard of a chocolate malt whisky, I wasn't too sure what I'd be tasting. For me it was well worth the wait. It was so smooth, like velvet and the words to descibe it have already been used. Yes there is chocolate but not over powering nor is the orangey coffee flavour either. This for me is the best whiskey I have ever tasted. yes it is more than I would like to pay but then again it is a special whisky for special occasions.

20th October 2011


I don't know what it is but this whisky actually tastes like smooth good Belgium semi-sweet dark chocolate, very different to anything else I've had. I personally love it, may be a bit expensive at this price. If I can find it for less then 100punds I'd defiantly get another bottle. Speaking of which, the bottle is very pretty.

27th September 2011

Loved it, but is there another Scotch made with chocolate malt?

Tried it once along with a tasting of of four other scotches. This was the best I have ever tasted, but I have trouble enjoying it for the price...

18th April 2011

Which is No 1?

"So far this is the 2nd nicest whisky i've ever had"
Curious to hear which whisky tops the chart :)

31st March 2011

Big Flavour Smooth Hit

so far this is the 2nd nicest whisky i've ever had. smooth, chocolaty, spicy goodness. Its a shame the samples aren't on offer at the moment as this is well worth a try

19th January 2011

I call it the six element.

Is to sexy to be real.

5th October 2010

Double Espresso and Dark Chocolate heaven!

Simply magnificent!

14th June 2010

F. Paul Pacult and the entire judging panel of the Ultimate Spirits Challenge

voted Glenmorangie Signet as one of the 4 best Scotch Whiskies in the world. I think I might trust their judgement more than most...

14th June 2010

There is a lot of whiskys...

...that is MUCH better for this price!(and even half the price!) We tasted it at The Glenmorangie Distillery last autumn.All four of us thought it was a disapointment!

15th May 2010

Master of Malt Reply

Chocolate Malt is Malted Barley that's been roasted for a long period. This extended roasting process turns the malt dark, dark brown, and imparts a deep cocoa, chocolate flavour to the Barley.

Guinness and other stouts are made using chocolate malt.

30th October 2009

What is a chocolate malt?

Thanx in advance:)
