Ah, Glenmorangie. Known for producing some of the world’s smoothest and most delicious whiskies (mainly due to their unconventional brewing methods), the whisky masters of the Glenmorangie Distillery have crafted yet another masterpiece:
The Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 14
This 14-year-old expression from Glenmorangie has been described as “a voluptuously silky spirit” and carries that signature smoothness found in all of Glenmorangie’s expressions with a fairly noticeable touch of fruitiness.
The Quinta Ruban obtains its fruity notes through maturing in bourbon casks. which also helps to develop its smoothness. That being said, to simply label this expression as ‘smooth’ would be an insult to it and the entire Glenmorangie Distllery as a whole.
Finding Silky Smoothness In Rubies
As mentioned earlier, this expression is beyond smooth which is due to the way its matured. After spending enough time in the aforementioned bourbon casks, the whisky is then further matured in ruby port casks (previously used to age ruby port wine).
Those casks the whisky matures in are called Quinta Ruban port casks, hence the name of this expression. Through this process, a mind-blowing velvety smoothness is formed along with a rich and bold chocolate flavour, adding even more depth to this whisky.
- Nose: Dark mint chocolate, tangerine, orange, sandalwood, walnut, hints of pepper and nutmeg.
- Palate: Mint chocolate, walnuts, rose, Turkish delight, sweet Seville oranges.
- Finish: Long-lasting silky aftertaste, minty dark chocolate, traces of orange.
