Signatory Scotch with Ed Kohl

Spirits Rants

Ed Kohl has a rythm that keeps you tuned in for more. His presentation is perfect. No question is a dumb question and his eagerness to share his vast knowledge spreads the whiskyglee attraction. I believe my first introduction to Signatory was in 1999. They have the exact philosophy today that they did then, which appears to be to present the whisky in its true glory. Leave the fat off and deal with the center of what counts. These are not flashy, overblown Malt blends from 100’s of casks. The goods are from one cask with their own personality, bottled to preserve the original flavor. A wine and Single Malt Lover’s breath of air, to be savored and paid attention to…

You can generally sense a Signatory-bottled dram. Signatory always does it light, but they always get it right. Signatory is an independent bottler of rare Single Malts that would otherwise be lost to the blenders. These Malts are hard to come by, but offer a unique opportunity to taste rare offerings. Signatory selects their casks from large lots of the highest quality scotch. The balance of the casks are then sent back to the blenders. Light filtration ensures the ‘usually’ 86 proof malts maintain their natural flavors. The malts are “all natural,” no caramel color is added to change the taste of the Scotch.
