Glenmorangie Signet, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
A small amount of malt whisky produced using chocolate malt is combined elegantly with whisky from as far back as the 1970's to create this truly luxurious single malt, Glenmorangie Signet.
Nose: The nose begins with chocolate raisins and sugared mixed peels. Toasted spices, bread and butter pudding and golden syrup complement these aromas, while a note of Angostura bitters lingers beneath.
Palate: Sweet, syrupy cinnamon and drying malt lead, before a suggestion of Terry's Chocolate Orange rises. A hint of lime rind is present, as are lychees and dates. The backdrop is filled with tobacco leaves and freshly roasted espresso beans, with a little honey-roasted cashew.
Finish: The finish dries and becomes pleasantly rubbery, as a touch of truffle oil emerges.
