Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Highlands, SCOTLAND
$160. 00
$1920.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%

Replacing the Wood Finish Range, the Glenmorangie Extra Matured Range is a selection of three single malt whiskies that, following an initial maturation of at least ten years in ex-bourbon casks, have been matured for an extra period (bringing the total time in cask to at least twelve years) in specially selected, extremely high quality, casks that previously held Port, Sherry or Sauternes wine. All are bottled at 46% ABV and non chill-filtered to enhance taste, mouthfeel and/or texture.

Glenmorangie's pioneering research into the wood selection on whisky maturation is exemplified by the Quinta Ruban (ruban is Gaelic for ruby), where mature Glenmorangie is transferred from the original bourbon cask and then extra matured or 'finished' in the finest Ruby Port Casks from the 'Quintas' or wine estates of Portugal.

Tasting note: Dull, pale bronze colour with a salmon blush. Mild shellac quickly blows away revealing cherry glace over oat biscuit and cocoa, beautifully integrated with an interesting hint of spearmint. Light to medium bodied but with good concentration. Juicy, semi sweet malt flavours are nicely meshed with subtle stewed plum, spice and old cigar box. Long, spicy aftertaste concludes with a delicate dark chocolate, sweet tobacco and clove end note. 46% Alc./vol.
