Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban
Glenmorangie // Highlands, Scotland
Quinta refers to the estates in Portugal where the Port wine is made and Ruban is Gaelic for Ruby, the style of Port wine utilized here. Another in the line of Glenmorangie's "Extra Matured" line, the first 10 years are spent in American Oak barrels and then spend the next two in Ruby Port pipes.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"Once again, the fragrance coming from Glenmorangie's Extra Matured line up is so full of sticky sweet fruit that you'd think just inhaling it will cause a cavity. Fortunately, that isn't how it works exactly. Yes, the taste is much like the nose, but we are talking about 92 proof whisky. The barley hasn't been covered up entirely. Perhaps, though, this would be best as an after dinner drink as it finishes with a hint of chocolate mint, but just a wafer thin mint."
