Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban is the darkest and most intense whisky in the Glenmorangie range that is extra matured. It has been aged a total of 12 years, but as usual with Glenmorangie, they had aged it in two different casks. The first being aged for 10 years in American White Oak cask and then being transferred into specially selected ruby port pipes from the Quintas or wine estates of Portugal.
Extra maturation in these port pipes develop Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban into a sunlight rose gold colour with an aroma of dark mint chocolate, tangerines and Seville oranges mingle with sandalwood and walnut before giving way to a spicy finish of pepper and nutmeg. On the palate you detect much more of a port characteristic. The flavours are mint chocolate and walnuts, which lay the foundations for rise, Turkish delight and sweet Seville oranges. The finish is long and silky that lasts a lifetime, leaving an aftertaste of dark chocolate mints and traces of oranges.
