Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2010
"This has to be Morangie Untraditional. An entirely different direction for this malt thick oak, intensity unique not just to the distillery but any other Highland malt I can think of, believe me, you are in for one hell of a show."
A fusion of unique and rare elements, and clouded in secrecy, Signet is the culmination of a lifetime's experience. A blend of our oldest whisky - distilled over thirty years ago when malting still occurred on site – and spirit matured in a selection of the world's finest casks, this undoubtedly is the richest whisky in our range.
Of course, whilst the exact secrets of its production are known only to our whisky creators, we can tell you that Signet's melting sweetness and explosive spiciness is, at least in part, caused by our unique roasted 'chocolate' barley malt and the 'designer casks' made bespoke for Glenmorangie from American white oak.
A strong Aruba espresso fused with a treacly plum pudding, rich with sherry, and candied orange peel.
A contrast of rich sweetness with an explosive crackle of sizzling spices and bitter mocha.
A fresh spring-like breeze of mint with a bright citrus lemony-green quality.
