A delicious no-age-statement dram from Glenmorangie, some of the spirit in Signet has been made using a unique heavily roasted chocolate malt that really beefs up the rich flavours. The packaging is impressive, too.
The nose displays exquisite richness, starting off with strong Aruba espresso notes fused with treacly plum pudding, rich with sherry, and candied orange peel.
The taste is a contrast of opulent sweetness with an explosive crackle of sizzling spices and bitter mocha. The finish is startling, a fresh spring-like breeze of mint with a bright lemon green quality.
