Highland Scotches are great, I drink a lot of them, but this particular bottle stood out. I received this bottle of Glenmorangie Signet from a friend as a birthday gift last year. I’ve enjoyed sipping on it since then, with today being the end of my bottle. I get booze a lot, because my friends known I love scotch, but this bottle was exceptional. I already miss it.
Made from the distillery’s oldest stocks, some aged 35 to 40 years. Twice distilled and matured in virgin American oak and bottled without chill-filtration. On the subject of taste this scotch provides everything you expect from a Highland and goes over the top.
Strong malted chocolate barley, coffee and caramel notes come out on top for me when tasting. The flavor of malt really shines through and mellows out some of the heavier spice flavors. It’s crisp and complicated enough without becoming overwhelming for the casual scotch drinker. I highly recommend this bottle if you find yourself looking to spend around just shy of $200.
