Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban 14 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 46% abv
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 14 year old is a whisky journey into the wild – a dark and delectable forest where the wind whistles with gusts of peppermint and dark swirls of chocolate can happen at any moment. In Glenmorangie’s giraffe-high stills, it begins soft and fruity, then gets darker and deeper as it ages for 14 years in bourbon casks and port casks from Portugal. The finished whisky is a thicket of voluptuous flavour combinations. Walnut and black pepper. Mandarin orange and melted marshmallow. Dark chocolate bar and peppermint. And, like stepping into a chocolate-minty-orange unknown, the journey is as delicious as the destination.
Colour: Rose gold.
Nose: Dark mint chocolate, tangerines and oranges liaise with sandalwood and walnut before yielding to a spicy finish of pepper and nutmeg.
Palate: Mint chocolate and walnuts wrap the palate, preparing the way for rose, Turkish delight and sweet oranges.
Finish: Long; leaving traces of dark chocolate mints and notes of orange.
