Glenmorangie Signet

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Glenmorangie Signet to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

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


Had a dream of this last night. I recommend leaving it to breath in the glass a little before your first sip. You really can pick up all of the flavours described. One of the best I've tried.

3rd October 2020

Favorite Whisky

I am an excessive drinker of single malts and have been for a while, not saying that as a matter of pride just that if you drink a bottle in a sitting... everything (in large amounts) counts. Having an 18 year old Glenmorangie after having Signet is like drinking red label. This is my favorite and have drank at least 35 bottles so far (have 5 in my kitchen now)...I tend to buy it every time I land in UAE as it actually saves me money. Very smooth and much recommended.

25th July 2020

Wonderful whisky, pure magic

This whisky is a piece of art.. its full of chocolate, butterscotch, cinnamon, milk, cream, cacoa, hazelnuts, almonds, cappuccino, amaretto ... if you like this tastes then buy it.. it is incredible how they could make this

25th July 2020

I tried

I bought this following all the extremely positive reviews and awards. Being a fan of Glenmorangie whiskies I expected good things and wanted to love this one, I really did... But I didn't. It just tasted strange to me. And with such a hefty price tag, I was left disappointed. I'm sorry. Obviously I am in the minority here but perhaps try before you buy.

30th June 2020

A masterpiece of craftsmanship.

Excellent not a whiskey drinker normally but I am amazed how much I enjoyed the. complexity .

22nd June 2020

Very overrated for the price.

Very nice in the mouth, rich and luxurious but then the flaws shows itself. No aftertaste, the flavours are weak and muted. Dont believe the great reviews, it is simply way overrated for that price.

17th May 2020


I really can't believe this is a NAS malt.
Tried it during a blind tasting with a very good friend and first comments were that its a well matured malt.
Conclusion???? well worth every penny especially since i am not a Glenmorangie fan.

7th May 2020

Simply the best !

Start the evening with Bowmore 15 (Darkest ) and finish with Glenmorangie Signet. I dont know if you can beat that ? Maybe add some food if you are that way inclined ?

6th May 2020

Sublime stuff

Dark chocolate and dried fruit. Very malty and nutty. Super long finish, makes your mouth feel like you've just drunk a strong espresso coffee. Sublime 10/10.

10th January 2020

Top quality

Really, really good dram and I would have to say, if you have the money free, well worth purchasing. I think Master of Malts tasting notes are very accurate but, more importantly, all four key elements: nose, palate, mouthfeel, finish, are all great and working in tandem. The mouthfeel in particular is a highlight for me as it is so rich, so luxurious, that you just want more. Superb and definitely one to savour.

15th December 2019


Beautiful scotch. Started out skeptical but a couple drops of water really opened this one up. Fantastic pour.

7th December 2019

'Sixteen Men of Tain'

For that price... nah!

16th October 2019


Mellow, smooth and sublime.

1st October 2019

An elixir through orange-scented spectacles.

Always a bit of a 'show-stopper' at the bar here and I'm not surprised given the embarrassment of riches on show albeit in a quite polished style if that’s your thing (& I'm starting to think that it is mine)
Aromatically, it is rather luxurious & not dis-similar to a bottle of 50+ year old Grand Marnier I have been lucky enough to have come across recently. Seamless. Mellow. The cocoa, brioche, orange, & vanilla scents playing out on an enveloping, moreish, textured palate which lengthens through those initial 30 seconds of sweet, rounded sensations and onwards to sweet tobacco leaf, a hint of iodine and roast hazelnut-like flavours adding more complexity and interest as seconds turn to minutes.

OK, so it doesn't exactly scream 'sense of place', and yes, it is a little flashy, but one listen of Richard E Grant's wonderfully egregious "Ooooorrrrr" as he wolf's down his umpteenth 5* dessert in 'Hotel Secrets' and you will get the idea of what's coming your way here.


10th September 2019


Very good. Smooth.

12th May 2019

Excellent whiskey

Every single drop was a joy to my taste buds - on my way to buying another bottle

24th April 2019

Hundreds of far better Scotches out there for a fraction of the price.

A waste of money. The worst Glen I have ever tried. A huge disappointment.

18th April 2019

Stay away from this expensive and low quality Glen.

Perhaps I may got a bad bottle or a fake one but this is the worst Glenmorangie I have ever tasted. I gave it 0.5 stars because I couldn't rate it lower. Extremely disappointed.

15th April 2019

Not impressed!

Honestly, not impressed!
The pleasant aromas you get when you sniff it do not match the taste at all...too pungent for my taste and a strong alcohol aftertaste and finish!
I was expecting more, but frankly quite disappointed!

19th March 2019

You must try

Caressed my throat... Stunning

6th January 2019

Class act, but an unexpected note.

Undoubdetly the best dram of the night in a classy tasting. The 'flatness' that the chocolate and tobacco aspects of it bring were totally new to me. Quite an odd sensation which I'm not quite sure how to place and if I like it . Very much a high profile whisky though. Pure class in the depth of its profile and many will get most of what the MoM chaps describe in their notes.

14th October 2018


Citrus honey malty

21st August 2018

Very smooth

Absolutely outstanding

4th August 2018

So smooth, very sweet for a Scotch, velvety, creamy, nice flavor profile. I usually enjoy a peatier malt, but this a welcomed change.


30th July 2018

To die for

Omg that's all I've got

23rd June 2018

Will try somewhere else 😀

Sold out in the Edinburgh Sheraton so I couldn‘t taste 😢

18th June 2018

A perfect alternative to Cognac

Fancy packaging , NAS ...that usualy raises my alarm bells. Well there are always exemptions to the rule - just went to get another bottle to stock up. It replaced Camus XO as my favorite after dinner drink.

1st June 2018

I wish


27th May 2018

Unique & delicious, but be warned: It's not what you've come to expect from Glenmorangie!

Okay, I'm going to (try to) clear up why I think this is getting reviews on both sides of the spectrum. This is not your traditional Glenmorangie dram. If you lust after their 18 year, Nectar D'or, or Astar, this may not be the scotch for you. This is for one main reason: the chocolate and coffee notes are overpowering for those with a sensitive pallet. This does not seem to be blended in the same way that many of their other whiskies are. The heavy, sweet tones obscure a good amount of the nuanced finish, though they do not diminish the quality. If you dig deep, those top notes are still there, and its age is shown in the mouthfeel and finish. However, if you were hoping for a floral, fruity, mild whisky, you might be disappointed with this. If I had to venture a guess, I'd suggest that the main portion of the blend (which some are claiming to be over 25+ years) tastes like it may have been a tad bit too heavy handed with the coffee/chocolate malt to go into their traditional 20+ year blends, and so they ended in as this. These flavors are intense, and unique for a scotch, so be prepared when sampling.

4th May 2018

In a word. Brilliant.

Should give a bad review just to keep more on the shelves for me to pick up.

13th April 2018

Simply the Best

Hands down, my favourite. I purchase this whenever I am lucky enough to find this exquisite offering.

Undeniably smooth and complex!

23rd March 2018

Excellent Offering

A personal favorite of mine. Locally us 'New' Englanders have to pay about $220/b for it and it compares favorably at that price point.

24th January 2018

Worthy of great praise

This is as smooth as silk, literary speaking. It’s not the cost but the taste...

12th January 2018

Good but not great

I love Glenmorangie. Their tall stills impart one of the smoothest drama on the market.

But this is a marketing ploy. Save your money and go for 18. You'll thank me.

14th December 2017

one of the best NAS

It is so smooth you got to have one. worth every penny

1st December 2017

worth buying but pronounced flavor profile

It has a pronounced flavor profile with strong notes. I like it but prefer the 18 which is smooth and more subtle.

27th October 2017

Top Dram

I get given various bottles of Whisky from customers to try but Glenmornagie Signet took me to another level , Smooth ,clean, sweet with cream chocolate tones and YES with ice from a Scotsman to . Signet is a wee hidden gem to keep all for yourself . Slangaver Lang mae yir lumb reek .

15th October 2017

ignore the bum steer

I get the feeling that those who are giving a bad rating and a poor review are more interested in deterring you from buying, so that there is more stock available FOR THEM !!!!!!!

13th October 2017

coffee, chocolate, spices, rich and warm. Try this as appetizer or dessert.

This is a wonderful whisky. I can only assume the few negative (1star) comments are by trolls or rival distillary employees. Anyone who loves whisky will give this minimum 3. Five stars from me considering the price.

10th October 2017


I’ve never been disappointed by any of the Glenmorangies, great bang for the buck. This one by far is my favorite!

30th September 2017


Magnum Opus for a whiskey. I tasted over 20 single malts when i was in Scotland and this one took the cake!

4th September 2017

Save your money and time

This is possibly the worst whisky I've ever drank. I'd love to give tasting notes but it tastes like rocket fuel. Complete waste of money. I love a good whisky but this is awful!!!

16th August 2017

I Say Rocks-MAY-to, You Say Rocks-MAH-to, Let's Call the Whole Thing Off

To those of you debating rocks / no rocks: why does one have to be wrong? First the latter, then the former.

As for this Scotch - - I've never been disappointed by any Glenmorangie, be it 10 Yr, Quinta, Lasanta, 18 Yr, etc... and this Signet... c'est magnifique.

29th July 2017

Very good


26th July 2017

An exquisite Scotch.

My wife, who normally doesn't like Scotch, loved it.

12th July 2017

Well worth everything you can imagine.

The Signet is everything they claim it to be and even more. It is a "heavy" finish with overtones of toasted chocolate, with a light vanilla at the very end. A superb scotch equal to none.

1st July 2017


Quite simply the most wonderful malt that I have ever tasted.

25th June 2017

Excellent. Sweet, warm and lasting.

I tried this at the Whiskibar in Edinburgh on Burns Night 2017. There were 3 other accompanying quality whiskies, but this was by far the best. A very warm and chocolate taste that lingered sweetly in my mouth for quite some time. That's why I'm online, buying a bottle right now.

26th January 2017

Absolutely love this dram

Never enjoyed opening a Christmas present so much since i was a kid :D
Beautiful bottle & package, But an even more beautiful aroma wafted through the air once the bottle was opened.
This malt may not be to everyone's taste, But i love it & it now ranks as the best malt that i've ever tasted.
Smooth yet punchy & oh so mouthwatering !!!
There's coffee, chocolate,sherry & dark fruits plus an oily smoothness feeling as it moves around the mouth.
A Fantastic dram indeed !!!

23rd January 2017


Worth every penny...and more

20th January 2017


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.

6th January 2017


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

Excellent - But is it worth it?

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.

11th September 2016

Excellent in-flight

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

More is less

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

Unique, complex, a journey

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....

24th July 2016

I like it


7th July 2016

Smooth, rich and flavor lasts from start to finish

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

Mrs L

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

Different but good

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

John C

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

Rotten stuff

I'm on my 4th bottle, or is it 5th? This stuff is best left in Scotland, dont touch it!

25th March 2016

Good but ....

For me, Glenmorangie Extremely Rare 18 is much better.

7th March 2016

Almost perfect

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

Mmmmm Mmm good

Possibly one of the best Scotches my dad and I have shared and really enjoyed.

13th February 2016

Ir is perfect

The best scotch you can drink, it perfect

30th January 2016

Good but at a cost

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

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.

22nd September 2015

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

25th April 2015

Tastes really good

...among the best...

18th April 2015

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.

6th January 2015

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...

30th December 2014

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!

@ 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!

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...

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?

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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...

Simply magnificent!

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!

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.

What is a chocolate malt?
