Glenmorangie Signet Bottling Note

This superb Glenmorangie was created with a marriage of whiskies produced from two unique types of malted barley: a single estate Cadboll variety and malted chocolate barley, which is better known as a basis for craft beers.

The Signet was distilled twice through Glenmorangie's copper-pot stills, by a team of 16 distillers known as the 'Sixteen Men of Tain'. It was subsequently matured in bespoke American virgin oak casks before it was bottled at 46%, and received no chill-filtration.

While it carries no-age-statement, there is said to be an element of some of the distillery's oldest and rarest stocks, ranging from 35 to 40 years old, in this Highland single malt.

Beautifully packaged and stunningly arranged, the Glenmorangie Signet is an outstanding whisky of unprecedented style and taste. Dr. Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie's Master of Whisky Creation, described it as the culmination of a "lifetime of experimentation and innovation".

The hard work paid off, as the Signet won Whisky of the Year in the same year as Lumsden was named Master Distiller of the Year at the 2016 International Whisky Competition.

This edition takes it name from the ornate square design that adorns most Glenmorangie bottles. The signet itself originated from the Hilton of Cadboll Stone, a Pictish artefact that dates back to around the year 800 AD.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The nose begins with chocolate raisins and sugared mixed peels. Toasted spices, bread and butter pudding and golden syrup complement these aromas, while a note of Angostura bitters lingers beneath.

Palate: Sweet, syrupy cinnamon and drying malt lead, before a suggestion of Terry's Chocolate Orange rises. A hint of lime rind is present, as are lychees and dates. The backdrop is filled with tobacco leaves and freshly roasted espresso beans, with a little honey-roasted cashew.

Finish: The finish dries and becomes pleasantly rubbery, as a touch of truffle oil emerges.

Overall: Utterly superb.

Glenmorangie Signet Reviews


Just lovely, I have had bottles twice this price but this one is just smooth and enjoyable.

Without doubt an absolutely fantastic whisky.

The nose is really lovely and reminds of a lovely wee cake and coffee shop I visited in Cuba a few years ago. If you threw cocoa powder into the air in a coffee shop whilst sucking on a piece of dark chocolate, that kind of covers it for me.
The palate was ridiculously lovely, it was sweet without being too sweet, I didn’t get any orange or citrus at all but I did get lychee but it was as if the lychee had been dipped in chocolate. As the taste develops it gets very complex and also frustrating as I tried to think of where the sweetness was coming from, I couldn’t nail anything in particular other than it evoked memories of my dear Nana’s sweet bowl which had a bit of everything.
The finish was just gorgeous, long, smooth sweet and it didn’t make me want to take another sip, it made me want to enjoy the lingering memories.
Fantastic whisky and yes it isn’t cheap but for the memories it brought back it’s worth every single penny.
The bottle and the packaging are also beautiful so for a gift you’d struggle to give better.

great gift for a true whisky drinker

I am not a whisky drinker but could seriously rethink that with this bottle. It’s expensive, yes, but worth every penny

Superb. Love it.

Stunned, mildly disappointed, then surprisingly good

The title says a lot about my reaction. I was stunned by the nose. It was... smokey? Like a gentle Islay peatiness...? (Think of the more mild pours of Bunnahabbain) What? In a Glenmorangie?? A hint of sweetness I couldn't place, but not quite the raisins and cocoa described in the notes. Certainly not the signature Glenmorangie sweetness I'm used to. Is the subtle smokiness I got, the "toasted..." described in the notes? It didn't seem near as subtle as "toasted," but okay. It's certainly not actually petty. But it was such a bold start.

The first taste left me I little disappointed, because I was expecting dessert levels of sweet from Glenmorangie, but I didn't get it. Once I settled into it, I was surprised at how good it got. It was more complex than I was used to, and not as sweet as I expected, but it was really good. If you take your time with it there is A LOT going on, and it's a fun challenge trying to identify the notes. It's sweeter than it initially appears, but the sweetness sneaks up on you because of everything that's happening, it's more toasted than described, and A LOT more enjoyable than it started.

I can't wait for an excuse to pop the cork on this bottle again!

Smooth, rich and creamy

Purchased on recommendation and absolutely worth it.
Unlike any other >£100 bottle I've sampled before. Stating a caramelesque 'warmth' in the flavour sounds pompous as hell, but it's accurate.
Will certainly return to this in future.

Probably the best experience I’ve had with a single malt.

WOW ! Just look at its awards its picked up so you know this is going to be good, no its one of the most unique and best single malt whisky I’ve had.

That chocolate malted cadboll barley whisky is chocolatey with Rosted coffee beans and rich dark and intense, seductive and like velvet on your tongue it just coats your mouth and all as I can say is that it’s intense from beginning to end but in the best of ways, it does not disappoint. If there was ever a sexy whisky in a bottle then this is it. It’s seductive and draws you in for more.

Delighted with this

Waffled over whether to say 4.5 or 5 stars for a while, but went with 5. The nose changed so much after you actually taste it that it feels like someone swapped your drink out. I get the citrus rind taste quite prominently, but the smell is delicious, lots of chocolatey fruity bakery things working with each other there. I don't get the rubbery finish at all but maybe I'm just calling it something else?

Excellent after dinner dram

A fantastic oily dram great after dinner that brings forward chocolate and coffee two of after dinner favorites in a glass. Savour the taste and don’t gulp it no matter how tempting it is

Chocolate, hints of coffee, orange zest

Chocolate ganache cake, hint of caramel, syrup of a marchino cherry, sweet toffee

Long, oily that coats your tongue

Excellent- most unique whisky I've tried

I bought a bottle to celebrate getting married and was not disappointed.

Extremely smooth and the most unique whisky I've had, with a flavour which completly changes from palate to finish. I typically drink Balvenie, Macallan, Glendronach and Glenallachie and this certainly sat nicely within my preferred tipples.

Well worth a buy and I will be getting another at some point.
