Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Single Malt Whisky - a lovely dram and a fair bit cheaper than usual - usually well over £40.
Quinta Ruban is Glenmorangie's port finish. To craft this single malt they specially selected Port pipes from the Douro valley in Portugal.
Non-chill filtered and 12 years old - 10 in American White Oak, and two in the port.
Great whisky - 4 1/2 stars on master of malt (and almost 50 quid)
Nose: Full of winter berries and a touch of port. A good oak and a little cereal hanging in the substratum.
Palate: Sweet and thick. The port note is chewy and rich with notes of barley sugar and cereal and lots of juicy fruit and berries, a tad cloying.
Finish: Long and fruity and quite sweet.
