Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Port Cask Finish 14 Year
Glenmorangie // Highlands, Scotland
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Port Cask Finish increased its age statement from 12 to 14 Years in summer 2019. The initial maturation remains the same with the first 10 years spent in ex-bourbon casks. But the whisky is finished for four rather than two years in former ruby port casks. Quinta Ruban is non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV. The packaging has been updated from a black label to a green label.
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.
Cask Typeex-bourbon, finished in port casks
"The first thing one will notice pouring this scotch is its striking color, a distinctive rosy hue imparted from its time in port casks. A hint of fresh strawberry comes across on the aroma. The palate is pleasantly briny with notes of almond, date, and elderflower. It finishes mildly sweet, but well-balanced with an assertive proof, and it could pair superbly with a cheese board."
