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.
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.

I've had most of the Glenmoragie iterations and have been very partial to the Nectar D'Or but the Signet is in a special category. I first tasted this at a Whiskey Tasting on a Disney Cruise if you can believe it. They were giving generous pours of different whiskeys but this was just the best of the bunch. This has a big smooth mouthfeel with loads of flavor. No bite at all. I taste some chocolate and caramel and this has a long smooth finish. Here is North Carolina the State controls the liquor stores so the price here was $180 for it. I bought it for my 70th birthday - what the hell!! I'll buy it again. Try it, you won't regret it.

My parents gave me this masterpiece as a present for a very special occasion and I am extremely thankful. This whisky is simply superb. The finish is long-lasting and the delicious taste in my mouth stays forever. Best Whisky I ever had.
18th November 2016
Truly superb - rounded, full bodied smooth but powerful. I bought this at the end of a 5 month stint in Scotland as a special purchase to celebrate. At just over £100 its well outside my normal price range. But I would buy it again for a special event.

I had this last night in Cathay F, loved it instantly. It goes incredibly well at 40k feet. Rich, chocolate, lots of spice. Decided to look it up but a little shocked by the price. I'll be interested to try it again on the ground but Lasanta seems much better value.
10th September 2016
A pleasant drink but in my opinion trying to hard. Lots of flavour but lacking subtlety.
8th September 2016
Hard to beat this one.
17th August 2016
An absolutely genuinely unbelievable explosion of flavours.
13th August 2016
The heart of this is tumble roasted barley intended to produce heavy dark chocolate and coffee notes, and indeed it does. With this much depth of flavor, I would believe it to be a blended whisky instead of a batch marriage malt. I really love all of the different 'morangies in this one and the "top secret" ones add a nice touch of mystery and intrigue. Signet has the most fascinating finish I have every experienced; a persistent pulsating creamy vanilla note that hangs on the front of the tongue for over 10 minutes. Truly truly enjoyable, a scotch like no other. I am surprised no one has attempted to imitate....

Caramel notes and while smooth, also has just enough of a bite to make balance out everything and keep flavor forward and finish just as strong as it glides down you tongue and warms your stomach.
15th June 2016
As far as "Whisky" goes - this is an aberration. Using Chocolate Malt is all well and good, alas, the trade off is a two dimensional product (coffee and cacao) that will probably have a market ONLY for those who have an UBER sweet tooth. As for the "other"- I suggest 95%? - of the Whisky drinking public ...there is something else!
1st June 2016
With a family involved in hospitality I am lucky enough to enjoy what the industry looks to advertise ....but my, my, is this exquisite! My only consolation of having finished the whisky is that the empty bottle is a masterpiece in itself. I wish it wasn't worth the money but sadly I have to bow to the fact that it is, which means the next bottle will have to be on me!
29th May 2016
I have to preface this by saying my introduction to single malts was a Mac18. Since then I've tried Highlanders, Speysides, and Islays of various ages, but I keep coming back to Speysides, especially sherried varieties. I am always on the lookout for the complexity of a Macallan 18 with something different (and if possible a more reasonable price).To be completely honest, this is not as complex, but what it is, is absolutely delightful. Smooth, warm, and easy, but not in a thin/cheap fashion. perhaps familiar and comforting are more appropriate than easy. The chocolatey notes are different but not startling.I happened upon this on a Disney cruise of all places. I got a tip that one of the bars on the boat made their Rob Roy's with Signet, so by asking for it extra dry, you end up with a dram for $10! I easily had a bottle and a half over a few nights. It's hard to describe how it is different than similar priced varieties from the region, but it's just inviting, full bodied, warm, and satisfying. It is not as complex or intricate as other Speysides (even some costing half as much), but it has a body and nose that make me want to add a bottle to my shelf. The finish is nice and medium-long with a bit of body that lingers in a good way. In a cruel twist of irony, it was at Costco for $98 iirc a few days before I went on the cruise. My first day home I went back only to find they had rotated stock :( At a street price of $150 in Southern Ca right now, I may have to hold off on procuring a bottle for a special occasion.
21st May 2016
Simply disappointing.Despite rave reviews I found it very poor value for the money and not at all what I was hoping for.
27th April 2016
I'm on my 4th bottle, or is it 5th? This stuff is best left in Scotland, dont touch it!
25th March 2016
For me, Glenmorangie Extremely Rare 18 is much better.
7th March 2016
Just received a bottle of this and my 3rd time tasting. Doesn't fail to impress. Such a unique flavour profile and goes down so nicely. I would prefer a slightly sweeter finish to round it off but just my preference.
4th March 2016
Possibly one of the best Scotches my dad and I have shared and really enjoyed.
13th February 2016
The best scotch you can drink, it perfect
30th January 2016
Fantastic dram, but definitely at a cost. Is it good? yes, its excellent. is it worth $200? hell no, there are much better out there. But if this was like $120 it would be fantastic.Its heavy, I taste olorroso sherry, malted chocolate, and syrupy textture which is nice
15th January 2016
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.
22nd September 2015
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
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
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
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
25th April 2015
...among the best...
18th April 2015
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.
6th January 2015
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...
30th December 2014
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
Got this as a present from my children at New Year...Its superb ... 2014 is going to be excellent !
6th January 2014
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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 whisky...in 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
I have tried it once,and it was heavenly.It should be had on the rocks.
3rd July 2012
Let's just say I will be buying a bottle
13th January 2012
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
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
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
"So far this is the 2nd nicest whisky i've ever had"Curious to hear which whisky tops the chart :)
31st March 2011
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
Is to sexy to be real.

14th June 2010
voted Glenmorangie Signet as one of the 4 best Scotch Whiskies in the world. I think I might trust their judgement more than most...
...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
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.
