.glenmorangie – quinta ruban

46% abv, €40, single malt, non chill-filtered

Nose: sweet, herbal, musty, dry wine, port
Palate: sweet, sharp, less dry as expected from the nose
Finish: this is dry, more wine as whisky, later metallic, sweet in throat
Score: +++++

Conclusion: Good. I once poured this on a party at work to non-whisky drinkers, where they decided to get a taste. Shame, because she would be better with a nice piece of old cheese and a warm hearth.

The spirit of the Quinta Ruban has matured in ex-bourbon casks to be finished in ex-port casks for two years.
