Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

This is the last of the core range I needed to review. While none of them were bad scotches most of them have not really grabbed me.

Paid: $40 for Glenmorangie 4 pack

Distilled / Owned By: Glenmorangie / LVHM

Region: Highland

46% ABV

Aged For: 12 Years

Mashbill: 100% malted barley

Cask Type: Ex-bourbon, finished in port casks

Chill Filtered: No

Color Added: Yes

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

 


 

Color: Brownish Orange

Nose: I can certainly detect a wine like smell of what I would assume to be a tawny port. Dried fruits, apricot and a douse of powdered sugar.

Taste: Vanilla, raisins, maybe pecan? More wine taste with flicks of yeasty cherry.

Finish: Warm and medium in length. Again a lot of fruitiness with orange peel and a dab of ginger.

Overall: I think this is the most balanced of the Glenmorangie range that I tried and I certainly enjoyed it the most. It was very fruity and yeasty, and not fruity in the sherry way that I am normally used to. If I had to choose a Glenmorangie from the core line it would be this.

Score: 80 out of 100
