A new version of a Glenmorangie Single Malt classic worth the dram.
Located near Tain on the east coast of the northern Highlands, the Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery by the sea. At a full twenty-six feet in height, the stills are the tallest in Scotland — ensuring that only the lightest vapors make it to the top and resulting in a smooth, fresh, and elegant range of fine Single Malt Whiskies. Now owned by LVMH, Glenmorangie is THE best selling Single Malt Whisky in Scotland and the rest of the UK, and one of our personal favorites.
We can’t help it… we have a real soft spot in our heart for Glenmorangie. And their Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 12 has been one of our favorites for years. But now they have Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 14, and we're telling you that we're flat-out excited. Like all of their wood finished Spirits, it starts as classic Glenmorangie Single Malt aged for a full decade in ex-Bourbon casks. Then it is transferred to first-fill Ruby Port casks for four more years. And here’s where we're torn… We want to give this dram our highest recommendation, but the less you buy the more there is for us (yes, it’s THAT good).
A lot of distilleries "talk" a good game about special water. But Glenmorangie is the real deal. Every drop used to make their Spirit comes from a nearby limestone aquifer — the famous Tarlogie Spring.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aromas are extraordinary with notes of cedar, rancio, marzipan, a dash of mint, and baked apple tarts.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavors are warm and delightful with orange zest, almond cookies, sultanas, walnuts, red apple, and chocolate cream.
The finish is medium to long with firm, but gentle notes of berry compote and after-dinner mints.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 14 Year Old and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
