Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban – 12 year old

glenmorangie quinta rubanGlenmorangie Quinta Ruban Extra Matured in Port Casks- 12 year old.

Ruby red in colour, and inspired by our visits to the Quintas of the Iberian peninsula, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban owes its velvet rich smoothness and long finish to the highest quality Portuguese Port casks selected for extra maturation.

Extra Matured: In the early 1990′s our passion for wood led us to experiment: we extra matured Glenmorangie in a different cask for only the last couple of years of maturation. To great success! This ‘finishing’ touch adds further characteristics to Glenmorangie’s fine taste: the Glenmorangie Extra Matured range was born.

A Journey of Passion: Our ongoing quest for perfection takes us on many journeys, exploring the world for inspiration. After a painstaking search, we have secured the very best oak casks from some of the great vineyards of the world for our Glenmorangie Extra Matured range.

In the Footsteps of Pioneers: Our pursuit of perfection has endured over 165 years, starting in 1843 with the installation of the tallest whisky stills in Scotland. It has continued with our insistence on using American white oak casks in which to age our whisky. These casks are idea for Glenmorangie, adding a natural sweetness to the subtle tastes of our spirit. As we only use our casks twice whilst many others refill their casks may times, Glenmorangie benefits from both the quality and freshness of the wood.

A Legendary Legacy: At our Highland distillery, Glenmorangie (Scots Gaelic for ‘Glen of Tranquility’), balances this thirst for innovation with our long years of experience to craft the perfectly balanced dram.

Non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban is full-bodied and velvety rich in texture, with a wonderfully long and smooth finish.

Tasting Notes:

Aroma: Dark mint chocolate, tangerines and Seville oranges mingle with sandalwood and walnut before giving way to a spicy finish of pepper and nutmeg.
Taste: 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.
Colour: Sunlit rose gold
