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 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.
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.
