I recently purchased a "gift box" of Glenmorangie which included the Original, Lasanta, Quinta Ruban, and Nectar D'or. The stand-out for me was the Quinta Ruban so I thought I would write a review of it.

Nose: The original is clearly still making a showing. It's a clean aroma of salted honey. Pistachios and a touch of cocao powder. The port influence is obvious, at least when tasted next to the original as I did.

Palate: Port wood screams at you. I love it! The mouth feel is bigger and oilier than the others, a big plus in my book. Is there such a thing as dark caramel? That's what I taste. NUTS! pistachio and cashew. Delicious! A little salt mixes just fine.

Finish: Glenmo. It stays sweet and nutty, one of my favorite things to taste in whisky. Not very long but very satisfying. It lets you get to another sip that much quicker.

Overall: Just love this one. I'm beginning to see that I love the clean flavors, as in not to earthy. It is just light and sweet enough to compliment the beginning or the end of a meal. I was expecting to like the Nectar D'or the most out of the range but surprise! Here comes Ruban!
