This is my favorite of the 12 year Glenmorangie wine finishes.
The nose is not too complex but there are definite notes of fresh berries (the port wood influence no doubt), raisins, and an undertone of the Glenmorangie malted sweetness.
The palate is where this scotch really excels; it is full, rich, and juicy. Rasberries and some floral notes come out with a hint of black licorice. I even get some sherry and fruit juice.
The finish has some spice and at fist seems to disappear quickly, however, after a few seconds the fruit juice and berries return and linger for quite a long finish.
Very well-balanced and very delicious. I have not tried the previous Glemnorangie port finished whisky and have heard many say that one was better but the Quinta Ruban is one I plan to always keep around.
