In an unusual move Glenmorangie's popular single malt Quinta Ruban 12yo has been given two additional years of maturation and is now available as a 14yo. As per the outgoing release, this is first matured in ex-bourbon casks and then finished in ruby port casks. Non-chillfiltered and bottled at 46%.
Nose: Dark mint chocolate, tangerines and Seville oranges mingle with sandalwood and walnut before giving way to a spicy finish of pepper and nutmeg.
Palate: Mint chocolate and walnuts envelop the palate like velvet, laying the foundations for rose, Turkish delight and sweet Seville oranges.
Finish: Long lasting silky aftertaste leaving dark chocolate mints and traces of orange.
