nice thick mouth feel, orange,fruit transitions to the nice port and spice combo.

I expected more unforgettable experience with this one. Good whisky, but in direct comparison with other Port-finished scotch - Tomatin 14 year old, I can say that Tomatin is amazing. In a way thats because Glenmorangie uses Ruby port casks for finishing while Tomatin counts on Towny Port.

In der Nase sehr fruchtig und (dunkel-)beerig mit Brombeeren, Himbeeren und Kirschen.

Im Mund leicht ölig und intensiv aber nicht scharf und dabei schön süß-fruchtig.

Im Abgang wieder rum Himbeeren, unterstützt durch Weinnoten und zum Schluss zartbitterem Kaffee.

Tolle Port Nachreifung und besser als die Sherry Variante.

Un très beau produit avec beaucoup de corps et une bonne présence des fûts d'affinage de porto ruby

Nose

orange vanille et une touche caramel. On peu sentir les tanins et une touche boisée. une envelopante odeur d'alcool domine

Palate

Une acidité présente et un gros kick d'alcool. On retrouve le même bois qu'au nez et la touche sucrée typique de glenmorangie mais un peu plus tanique. Une texture assez douce malgré la puissance

Finish

Une finale puissante sèche et courte. Un goût style cognac reste avec une complexité apparente au vin.

Very good scotch. Reminded me a bit of a rosè wine... it even has a pinkish hue. Sweet with notes of red grapes, and raisins. Could be a bit smoother and I wish the finish lingered a bit longer.

Nose

Sweet, red grapes, comforting peat, fruit punch

Palate

Sweet, has a bit of a bite, raisins, dark fruit, rosè wine, medium mouth feel for a scotch

Finish

Disappointingly short, grassy, hint of smoke

Let it breathe for 15 minutes and drink it neat. There's mint, dark fruits, spices and dark chocolate on thw nose. Palate was intense with pepper and cherry overtones with the slight sweetness reminiscent of fine bourbon. Long smooth finish. Well crafted. Take time with this one; it will reward your patience.

Toller Whisky, mit einer unglaublich tollen Nase. Ebenso auch sehr komplex, sodass es teilweise schwer war Aromen herauszuschmecken. Insgesamt ein sehr runder, ausgeglichener Whisky, in dem alle Aroma-Noten perfekt verflochten sind!

Nose

Noten von schweren dunkle süße Beeren, dennoch durchsetzt mit klaren blumigen frischen Noten, Orange, Mandarine, Caramell und Waldhonig sind zu erriechen. 46vol% sind defintiv in der Nase zu spüren. Würzig mit Nelken.

Palate

Sehr prickelnd auf der Zunge; amgenehme Süße, die dunkeln Früchte sind zu erahnen. Sehr cremige Konsistenz!

Finish

Nach einer gewisser Schärfe, vielleicht Pfeffer,schöner milder Abgang mit Schokoladen-Noten.
Belegt lange die Zunge!

General description

After tasting several Glenmorangie expressions I had to buy a full bottle for my home bar. I've chosen for this 46% Quinta Ruban. It seems to be the normal 10Y old with an aditional finishing of 2 years in Ruby port pipes.
The port pipes gave it it's beautiful ruby red colour. No additional colouring was needed to achieve that.

Right from the start you can smell that it's full, dark, heavy and mature. Lots of dark fruits(fig,date,raisin) are hiding most of the alcohol. Orange and bitter chocolate can also be detected.
Strong wood and soft spice complete the nosing.
Mmmm nice.

The taste is silky smooth with a strong fruity cask influence. The balance comes from a slight mint, a nutty almond and some bitter chocolate.

The long spicy finish provides you with everything that already showed up so far. New are the orange peel and nutmeg.
This beauty leaves a lingering oily teeth covering.
I would call this expression balanced and full bodied.

But still, this one is not my favourite from the distillery. Considering it's price it's stil very advisable though.

86 points.

one of my favorites from glenmorangie. Port influence is pronounced in the nose and palate. nose also exhibits sweet taffy, red wine, and plums. nose gives way to similar palate notes.

slightly oily texture at the entrance, port wine is prominent, spicy marmalade, ends with hint of sweet raisins
