It's true that Glenmorangie's Signet is the best bottle they have available right now. Though, at half the price, the Glenmorangie 18 Year Old is remarkably close to the Signet in terms of enjoyment.
It's nose is more floral and less complex and its flavor it lacks some of the rich chocolate of the Signet, but it was definitely produced by the same craftsmen and it has a hint of smoke on the finish that is very nice.
Compared to its younger sibling, the Original 10 Year Old, it is far more complex, smooth, and refined. It definitely hits the sweet spot between the very good entry level Original 10 Year Old and the high end Signet both in terms of quality and cost.
Highly recommended. 90/100.
