Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Aged 14 Years Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700 ml ABV: 46% Age: 14 Years Old Country: Scotland
Glenmorangie distillery lies just north of Tain, on the wind-swept coastline of Easter Ross. The distillery has only sixteen distillery workers – two for each of its eight stills. These stills are the tallest found in the Highlands, of the same design as those used in the 1880’s which were actually second-hand gin stills. Their height means that only the purest vapours reach their necks and condense. The owners Macdonald and Muir take great care in cask selection, using US oak from the Osark mountains. The ‘designer hogsheads’ which they began to use in 1995 (when the charming Mr Bill Lumsden arrived at the company) are now showing dividends in the wonderful Artisan Cask. They also use a hard water source, which is unusual.
The darkest and most intense whisky in the extra-matured range, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban has spent 10 years maturing in American white oak casks, before being transferred into specially selected ruby port pipes from the Quintas wine estates of Portugal. Extra maturation in these port pipes develops Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban into a voluptuous spirit with a complex balance of sweet and dry flavours and an intriguing contrast of smooth and crisp, cooling textures. Non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouth-feel. Typical Morangie complexity…portrayed with clarity and confidence… form of cask finishing that has progressed from experimentation to certainty – Jim Murray
