The Glenmorangie Distillery
 was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery. It lies just north of Tain, on the wind-swept coastline of Easter Ross. Their stills are the tallest found in Scotland – as tall as a giraffe, apparently – of the same design as those used in the 1880's which were in fact second-hand Gin stills. Which means that only the very lightest vapours make it to the top, resulting in a smooth and elegant Scotch Whisky.
 
In 2004 the distillery was sold to LVMH, a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate and has since adopted a brave strategy of giving their drams French-sounding names, which on the looks of things, has payed out for them. 
 
The Signet is one of Glenmorangie's most unusual creations. It's a combination of two different types of malted barley – high roast chocolate barley malt, which is normally used to produce brown ales, porters and stout Beer (they're more roasted, or caramelized, than what is standard in making Whisky), and Cadboll barley malt from Glenmorangie's own estate, adding creaminess to the final dram. Additionally, 'an element' of Glenmorangie's oldest stock is used, aged from 35 years up through 40 years. The Signet is twice-distilled and matured in a variety of Sherry and new charred oak casks.

Master Distiller Dr. Bill Lumsden spent his days as a student at Glasgow University experimenting and testing with many varieties of malted barley commonly used in Beer production. We could say that the Signet is the apex of his many years of sipping, trials and errors. So, here's to vision, persistence and well, tasting!

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Ratings & Reviews
Fabian
Fabian,
This is a luxurious, refined and most elegant Scotch Whisky. The notes on this one are quite distinct. everything correlates from nose to palate. Dark chocolate, oak, orange essence, oak, coffee and vanilla are the stars of the show here. The layering is remarkable. Lingers on the tongue with intricate transitional character, through to the tranquil and velvety finish.

Easily in my top 3 ever. This is a fantastic dram. On the nose. The taste. Sublime. Utterly classically elegant and sublime. You must try this at least....as many times as you can!!!!

Sweet Scotch. Chocolate, caramel. Unusual for a Scotch, but very delicious.
 
Cody
Cody,
The Glenmorangie Signet is the best Scotch I've ever had. There's no peat in this; many confuse peat /smoky with oak. These are not to be confused. The flavor spiral on this Scotch is very accurate. I can certainly taste the oranges, cacao / dark chocolate, espresso and oak. This Scotch has depth and is well balanced.

Perfect balance, a must have dram.

Aaron,
My favorite Scotch (and I generally am not a Glenmorangie drinker). I generally struggle with the Highland Scotches. That said Signet really changed my perception and I may need to go back and try more from the region again. On this nose I get espresso and citrus. The palette is spicy with vanilla and a hint of tobacco. The finish is very smooth and lasting with more citrus and some tannins but definitely not astringent. The big shocker with this bottle was the noticeable absence of in your face peat. There are hints of peat but it's very tame and balanced. The checkbook doesn't allow me to keep this bottle around as a daily drinker but I sure wish it did.

Gregory,
Very decadent. Like dark chocolate with a hint of orange dissolved in espresso. The finish is chocolatey and doesn't linger that long. If you're looking for something completely different in a whiskey this is about the most unique tasting one I've had. Ice makes it taste shallow and bitter. Best enjoyed neat. How they got a single malt whiskey to taste like this is beyond me.

Doug
Doug,
Remarkable whisky. Bottled at 46% and much less heat than the 18 year old, which is at 43%. Smells primarily (to my nose at least) of oranges, cocoa and a bit of oak. Chocolate taste really comes through, along with oranges (of course!), vanilla and a bit of cinnamon. Very nice mouthfeel...kind of syrupy. Just a wonderful whisky but man it's expensive.

Attendees at a tasting I hosted lost their minds over this one. Outstanding!!! There was clearly something for everyone here because we have widely varying palates and preferences.
