The Dark and Intense Glenmorangie.

The Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery. It lies just north of Tain, on the wind-swept coastline of Easter Ross. Their stills are the tallest found in Scotland – as tall as a giraffe, apparently – of the same design as those used in the 1880's which were in fact second-hand Gin stills. Which means that only the very lightest vapours make it to the top, resulting in a smooth and elegant Scotch Whisky.
 
In 2004 the distillery was sold to LVMH, a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate and has since adopted a brave strategy of giving their drams French-sounding names, which on the looks of things, has payed out for them. 
 
The darkest and most intense Whisky in the extra-matured range, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban has spent 10 years maturing in American white oak casks, before being transferred into specially selected ruby port pipes from the Quintas or wine estates of Portugal.

Tried it the first time with Flaviar and thought it was harsh. Just had it straight out of the bottle and it was much more pleasant and milder.

Arjun
Banana on the nose and taste. Creamy finish. Like it.
Maurizio
Balanced. Port wine. Good one.
Phillip
Others called this intense. I thought it was wonderfully balanced and smooth finish.
Corey
I had to rate this a little lower because of the strong peaty flavor. I loved the fruit and sweet taste, but I am sensitive to peat, and this was just way too much for me. I se why people enjoy it, but this is not the right scotch for my taste.
Colin
Packed with flavours
Jeremiah
Caramel, toffee, fruit, med finish.

One of the best I've had

Chocolate and caramel aroma is pleasing and the color is beautiful. A little harsh initially but mellows into a smooth finish.

A very unique scotch and a phenomenal profile for the price. My daily drinker.

A full bodied and well balanced whisky. Notes of port, nutmeg, orange and raisins. A nice dram.
