I ordered this on a whim. I heard some good things about Signet so I figured why not. Turned out to be the right call. A fantastic dram and a wonderful presentation, Box is first class and the bottle is...sexy? Color is a beautiful caramel. I'm not great with pickling up scents on my nose but I do sense richness, sweetness with maybe chocolate. Minimal peat if any at all. The finish is rich, sweet and on the oily side and oh so smooth. A drop of water did open things up a bit. No age statement but it drinks like it's slept in a barrel for decades. On the pricey side but this is a wonderful scotch. Hide this one for only people that are close to you. Me and 2 friends emptied the bottle in one night while having cigars, easily.
Having finished my Glenmorangie 18, I was looking for something even more special. This has the essence of Glenmorangie with the sweetness and fruitiness it’s known for but a more refined and balanced approach. Even the oil balance was good. Not too much, but plenty to extend the finish to a clean end.
From the packaging down to the heavy glass cork top, it gives it a sense of being a bit special and the nose and taste did not disappoint.
It’s on the expensive side but I think I’ll keep it in my rotation.
