Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Port Cask Aged 14 Years Highlend Single Malt Scotch 750ml
$124.99 price per bottle
Glenmorangie has increased the age statement of its Quinta Ruban Port-finished whisky to a 14-year-old, in order to emphasise its flavour.
Matured for 10 years in American white oak casks, the whisky is then transferred to ruby Port pipes from the Quintas, or wine estates of Portugal for several more years.
It is described as the darkest and most intense whisky in Glenmorangies core range.
Brendan McCarron, head of whisky stocks at Glenmorangie, said the decision to up the expressions age statement was made, in part, after the company listened to its customers.
He said: People appreciate all our whiskies but were always tinkering with the flavour profile to enrich the flavour.
For Quinta, the biggest flavour of them all is dark chocolate and burnt Seville orange.
We noticed that with a little bit more age those flavours really pop. Our customers always said that if it was older it would be more appealing, and we agree.
