The Glenmorangie Signet was distilled twice through Glenmorangie’s copper-pot stills, by a team of 16 distillers known as the ‘Sixteen Men of Tain’. It was subsequently matured in bespoke American virgin oak casks before it was bottled at 46%, and received no chill-filtration.
While it carries no-age-statement, there is said to be an element of some of the distillery’s oldest and rarest stocks, ranging from 35 to 40 years old, in this Highland single malt.
Glenmorangie Signet is distilled using a high percentage of ‘chocolate malt’ – this is malted barley which has been extra toasted to give it a darker colour and a slightly bitter cocoa flavour. Aged in combination of oak casks, including virgin oak which influences the flavour of this whisky with pronounced vanilla notes.
