Glenmorangie Signet

Postby John McGill » Mon Oct 06, 2008 12:42 am

Anyone tried the new Glenmorangie Signet?

I noticed it in a local store this evening but at £120 a bottle I managed to resist :)

From the description is sounds like something you'd either lover or hate but I'd like to try it so I'm thinking about signing up for the Glenmo masterclass at the forthcoming Glasgow Whisky live as it's listed as one of the drams.

For anyone interested there's more info on Signet over at Malt Advocate:

I had a wee sample of this yesterday. Really nice whisky, but as has been said before it's way out of my price range.

Can I cross refer to this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10010

Perhaps the two might be merged? With apologies for starting a near duplicate thread.

I really enjoyed this beverage. Yes, it's too expensive. But it's different and of very high quality.

I think the Signet is a good example of how perceptions can change with age statements.

I accept that many of us don't buy £120 whiskies at all - or not for drinking. But I might occasionally do this, and I was impressed by the Signet when I tasted it "blind". When I found out what that it was a NAS whisky, I thought the price tag was way off beam, despite the impressive taste. Yet when I heard that much of the whisky in the blend was over 35yo, my perception changed - the price tag started to seem reasonable.

How shallow I am.

I've tried this a bit, and I love it.

Yes, it's a bit pricey, but it's a quality whisky, and you are rewarded for your outlay.

(Nothing worse than paying a lot of money for a mediocre dram).

What's more, it offers a fairly unique and different flavour profile - the old casks in the vatting add rich, oaky, dark chocolate and liqueur flavours, while the younger casks add sweetness, citrus, and a bit of life. It's actually a very complex dram as a result, and I think it's one of the best Glenmorangies ever.

Cheers,
ADmiral

Got a bottle of the Signet a month ago. Really enjoyable stuff. Expensive but I am a slag for ridiculous packaging!
