'Though the finish of the standard Glenmorangie 10y didn't quite meet my expectations, its initial aroma more than tickled my senses.
This kept me from losing interest in the brand, and when I came across ths Quinta Ruban it immediately caught my attention.
The colour of the dram - and to be honest also the name - really attracted me and before I knew it I had baught a bottle.
The first nosing confirmed my thoughts: a tingling full sweetness of red dried fruits let the port shine through. It's actually more complex, but it's quite difficult to make a clear summary.
The dram is medium bodied, rather sweetish, but this perfectly in balance with the alcohol. Hints of raisins and/or other dry fruit, and even tobacco.
Other than the original, this Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban's aftertaste tends to linger quite long. It's warming with impressions of nuts and tobacco on top of the fruit.
