A Port cask finish from the Pioneers of Wood Finished Whisky
The Quinta Ruban is a full-bodied, silky-smooth single malt from Glenmorangie, finished in a Quinta Ruban port casks which imparts a rich chocolate flavour.
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban has spent 14 years maturing in American white oak casks, before being transferred into specially selected ruby port pipes from the Quintas (wine estates) of Portugal.
The extra maturation time in these port pipes develops Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban into a voluptuous spirit with a complex balance of sweet and savoury flavours with an intriguing contrast of smooth and crisp, cooling textures. It has been non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouthfeel.
Gentle aromas of Seville oranges and walnut build into rich dark chocolate, sandalwood and spicy pepper. The palate initially offers notes of mint chocolate, walnuts and citrus, which then develop into Turkish delight, sweet Seville oranges and summer flowers.
