The exciting Quinta Ruban is yet another brilliantly innovative product of the well-known Glenmorangie Distillery.
A non-chill filtered Single Malt Whisky with 46% AVB, it was first aged for 10 years in American oak barrels; in order to singularize it, though, it was subsequently aged for 2 years in used Port barrels, a fact which brought the whisky a uniquely smooth and suggestive palate.
The single malt Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 12 Years has a gorgeous mahogany colour with some rosy and amber hints. The nose is very complex, beginning with a note of citrus oil and After Eight, slowly evolving into remembrances of toast, exotic woods and nutmeg.
As for the palate, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban is lush and intoxicating. There is a clear note of dark chocolate bonbons, with hints of nuts, candied orange rind, flowers, and wild berries. Long finish with an aftertaste of mint chocolates.
