Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban is a velvety-textured single malt whisky, for confident, colourful, dynamic luxury spirit drinkers who like to take the lead. A mature Glenmorangie that is transferred from the original ex-bourbon cask and then extra matured or 'finished' in port pipes, shipped from the 'Quintas' or wine estates of Portugal. Maturation in ruby port pipes develops The Quinta Ruban into a voluptuously smooth spirit with a complex balance of sweet and dry flavours that engage the entire palate and envelope it in an intriguing balance of smooth velvet and crisp, cooling textures. The beautiful ruby colour is derived from the ruby port pipes that are used for maturation, and the intensity of this hue is untouched by the non chill-filtering process. Ruban is Gaelic for Ruby. With an ABV of 46%, its dominant tastes are rich, chocolaty and minty.
Glenmorangie was established in 1843 when William Matheson founded the Glenmorangie Distillery in the Scottish Highlands. He began his venture into making a pioneering single malt whisky inspired by the peaceful surroundings of the distillery. The single malt was known to be exceptionally smooth and complex in nature. Distilled in Scotland's tallest stills and matured in the finest casks, Glenmorangie is made and perfected by "The Men of Tain', known to be the guardians of the spirit. The Quinta Ruban is the most darkest and intense whisky known, owing to its 10 years of maturing in American white oak casks, then transferred into selected ruby port pipes from Quintas or Portugal. The process of the extra maturation develops the whisky into a truly distinct spirit with a complex balance of sweet and dry flavours. Coming off with aromas of dark mint chocolate, tangerines, Seville oranges, sandalwood and walnut, it leads to a spicy finish pf pepperand nutmeg. This envelops into a velvet taste of foundations of rose, Turkish delight and sweet Seville oranges, swaying you into an aftertaste of dark chocolate mints and traces of orange.
