Glenmorangie Original

Single Malt Whisky

The result is a pure and fragrant spirit, bursting with fruity floral complexity, with a nose of mandarin, lemon and peach softened by vanilla, alongside herbal and floral notes. Silken textures bring forth tastes of creamy vanilla that balance with coconut, almonds, and honey, before a gentle, lingering finish. Uniquely smooth and complex.

9. Glenmorangie Signet



Glenmorangie Signet

Scotch Whisky

Glenmorangie Signet is created from a marriage of whiskies produced from two unique types of malted barley: a single estate Cadboll variety and malted chocolate barley (craft beers). It is distilled twice through Glenmorangie’s copper-pot stills. It is subsequently matured in American virgin oak casks before it is bottled at 46%, and receives no chill-filtration. Glenmorangie Signet has a medium to long, sweet-spicy and chocolaty. Plenty of chocolate with a touch of mint, ginger, roasted aromas, nuts, and oak make the Glenmorangie slowly fade away. On the palate remains a subtle bitterness.
