A superb, beautifully packaged Glenmorangie. Signet is distilled from malt with a good portion of chocolate malt too. Chocolate malt is heavily roasted malted barley. Some of this whisky was also matured in virgin oak casks.
Nose: Chocolate raisins, an old-fashioned cocktail, cocoa. Peels.
Palate: Sweet at first, with more dried fruits revealing themselves as the palate progresses. The darker fruits give way to complex notes reminiscent of lattes and cappuccinos. A very creamy texture overall with complimentary chocolate and some citrus notes. It has a long finish, filled with cocoa and cream. Rice pudding was found at one point with more oranges and some coffee present.
Finish: Dries and becomes pleasantly rubbery, fruity.
