Signet – Whisky With A Taste Of Espresso

Glenmorangie Signet

Once a year in the Glenmorangie distillery in he Scottish Highlands time is dedicated to the production of exclusive whiskey called Signet, which is the product of a “crazy scientist” Dr. Bill Lumsden.
Dr. Bill, who is the official director of the Glenmorangie Distillery, is a man who practically sees opportunities where others see craziness. On one occasion, for example, he spent several years trying to understand how from a rare barley called Maris Otter, practically in extinction, make a unique whiskey. Then came the time when enjoying in Jamaican coffee Jamaican Blue Mountain he realized that he could make a whiskey that has the same taste. That’s how he did it.

This year marks 10 years since the creation of the first Glenmorangie Signet whiskey, which is a mixture of chocolate malt and a characteristic Glenmorangie malt. By isolating chocolate malt Lumsden is able to create an intense smell and taste of espresso. Drinks are resting in several different types of barrels, so the bourbon barrels bring you a sense of velvet, sherry barrels give this confectionery note, while oak barrels give the necessary spice note.
But that’s not all! Almonds, roasted hazelnuts, white chocolate and lemon zest also play a very important role in creating this whiskey. Keep the drink briefly in your mouth and you will feel a mixture of butter and brown sugar, as well as traces of Italian tiramisu.
The drink is a pure luxury enhanced by the bold flavors of bitter orange blended with grains of espresso immersed in amaretto.
