Glenmorangie is Gaelic for “Glen of Tranquility”
The Glenmorangie Distillery Coy,
Tain, Ross-shire, IV19 1BR
Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky – The Quinta Ruban, 12 Year Old, 46% Alc/vol 70cl.
This award winning dram is the darkest and most intense of the extra-matured range. This Whisky has been in American oak casks maturing for 10 years before being transferred into ruby port pipes from Portugal.
Lets open this bottle and have a wee taste.
Colour…Highland Autumn Sunset.
Nose…Ripe pears, Peppermint chocolate creams, some woody spices like cloves and cinnamon, a little orange peel hint.
Taste…Oranges and lemons, a wee pepper nip, milk chocolate nut brittle, big, rich and very rounded.
Finish…Very drying, oakiness fills the palate finishing with some light marmalade, medium to long finish.
This is a very fine and elegant Whisky and is an ideal after dinner dram, sip it slowly with just a teardrop of water.

This Whisky will always be in my cabinet and brought out after having a nice meal with friends to end a special night.
