Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Port Cask Finish

The Quinta Ruban 14 is a fabulous deep golden colour due to its maturation in Bourbon casks then finished in ruby Port casks
The nose suggests rose, milk chocolate, almond croissants and sweet oranges
The palette is very smooth with the sweetness of strawberries and the tartness of orange entwined with bourbon biscuits and mint reminiscent of a Mint Cracknel (a chocolate bar from the 70’s)
The finish is long with a nip of spice and dark chocolate
The Quinta Ruban 12 year old was an exceptional dram and this is different and difficult to compare so it’s unfair to do so but I’ll simply say, whilst it lacks the depth of its predecessor, it’s worth the effort to try it
