Glenmorangie Signet represents the very essence of Glenmorangie. The award winning single malt is the culmination of the Distillery’s 170-year dedication to crafting unnecessarily well-made whisky.
It is informed by the mineral-rich water of Glenmorangie’s Tarlogie Springs; the local Cadboll barley, which adds a silky creaminess to the spirit; the 150-year-old oaks which make up the casks in which it is matured and the Distillery’s ancient provenance, signified by the ancient Pictish artwork of Glenmorangie’s homeland, the Hilton of Cadboll Stone. The first whisky to be created from high-roasted “chocolate” malt, and incorporating some of Glenmorangie’s oldest stocks, Glenmorangie Signet epitomises the Distillery’s reputation for combining innovation with tradition.
The spirit is a deep amber colour with aromas of chocolate, coffee and mint, layered with dark treacle, spice and fruits. Tastes of rich sweetness contrast with spices and bitter mocha, combined with baked apricots, orange peel and malt, which finish in tastes of fresh mint and lemon.
First released in 2008, Glenmorangie Signet has won a series of industry awards, including several Gold Outstanding and Best in Class awards from the International Wine and Spirits Competition, and Gold awards from the International Spirits Challenge and San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
