Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 12 year old, 46%
Price: $55 ● Issue: Spring 2019 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
Matured in bourbon casks for 10 years, followed by 2 years of finishing in ruby port pipes from thequintas, or wine estates, of Portugal. Stewed fruits, cloves, and port-soaked oak on the nose, which carry over to the sweet, viscous palate, along with milky coffee, fruit spices, and cereal. The overall effect of sticky sweetness lingers through the finish.
