From Glenmorangie's core range comes the 12 year old Quinta Ruban. Matured for 10 years in American white oak casks, and aged for another two in hand selected ruby port pipes from Portugal's Quintas or wine estates, this whisky is both dark and intense.
The port pipe maturation adds unique flavours to the expression, with a mix of sweet and dry notes on the palate, and smooth and crisp textures.
Glenmorangie Distillery opened in 1843 in Ross-shire, and has been producing fine Highland single malts ever since, using fresh, mineral filled water from the Tarlogie Springs.

Nose: Dark mint chocolate, tangerines and Seville oranges mingle with sandalwood and walnut before giving way to a spicy finish of pepper and nutmeg.
Palate: Mint chocolate and walnuts envelop the palate like velvet, laying the foundations for rose, Turkish delight and sweet Seville oranges.
Finish: Long lasting silky aftertaste leaving dark chocolate mints and traces of orange.
