Glenmorangie 14 Year Scotch Whisky Quinta Ruban in Port Cask
#9on Whiskey Advocate's Top 20 Whiskies of 2019
"This Quinta Ruban succeeds the 12 year old version, adding two additional years of finishing in port casks, while maintaining the same bargain price. The result is a symphony of understated opulence. Marzipan, fresh apple and pear, milk chocolate, red berries, candied ginger, and praline on the nose build slowly, leading into a fruity, spiced palate. Flavors of soft gingerbread, molasses cake, cherry pie, spiced plums, almond nougat, and dark chocolate intermingle with faint strains of pipe tobacco. It sings on the finish, with a parting crescendo of hazelnut, spice, cigar wrapper, and lengthy oak. —Susannah Skiver Barton"
"A voluptuously silky spirit, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban is aged first in bourbon casks for smooth, fruity notes. We then finish this single malt whisky in ruby port casks to create velvety depth.
Our Quinta Ruban port cask finish brings chocolate boldness to Glenmorangie's renowned smooth style. Non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouthfeel, it is savoured all over the world."
