Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
This is the new incarnation of Quinta Ruban, with an extra two years added to the age statement. Initially matured in x Bourbon barrels, it spent a finishing period in x Ruby Port casks. It's a controversial upgrade with some tasters preferring the earlier, younger edition. Pretty autumn leaf gold. Whiffs of pristine barley arrive with suggestions of berry muffins and strawberry sponge cake. A full bodied and spicy 'Morangie offering a delicious oily quality, - quite chocolatey too, plus a hint of Turkish delight. The port pick-up is slight. 46% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
Other reviews... Mind bending complexity...but the Murray method and a half hour of your time is essential to fully understand the extraordinary heights and depths this malt reaches. 95 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2024
Orange segments sprinkled with black pepper on the nose, then spicy dark chocolate and coffee with cream. More dark chocolate and Jaffa orange on the palate, plus walnuts, almonds, and marzipan. Lengthy in the finish, with soft spices and continuing dark chocolate. 91 points - whiskyadvocate.com
