    Very fullbodied. Perfect for man company.

    Lovely rich flavor. Sweet, but not cloyingly sweet. I typically enjoy a bit of smoke, but didn't mind its absence in the Quinta Ruban. No hint of astringency at all. Finished very smooth. I kept going back for more which was disappointing since I only had a small taster from a set. I will definitely pick up a bottle soon.

    Fruitcake, Christmas spice, bandage, raisin, sweet decadent caramel, thick & syrupy, oak, buttery. This has been my number one Scottish whisky. THE Scotch that got me into scotch. Even when I got my hands on a bottle of Nectar D'or and I first opened the bottle, QR won. Now that Nectar D'or has sat for about 3 weeks, it has officially settled down and became the nectar that I imaged when I bought it and has officially surpassed QR in taste/aroma. However, you can't beat the quality of QR for the price/availability. It is my favorite Scottish Whiskey, and will forever have a place on my shelf.

    "Nose" (undiluted) Orange peel, dark chocolate, faint hospital bandages with medicinal ointment, and freshly turned over, early morning, damp earth, as you hunt for worms for that fishing trip. "Palate" (undiluted) Rich, velvety, mouth filling body of loganberry, blackberries, raspberries. Think Christmas fruitcake with lots of chunks of dark plum, raisins and dark cake bread. "Finish" (undiluted) Fantastic finish. What started initially as sweet quickly became mouth watering, and then dry and by the time you swallow, you are left with dusty apricot and port wine notes.

    Color: deep and thick gold red. Style: m?dium body and richness without smoke. Nose: full of diferents berries and port wife notes. Palate: sweet and thick. Full of port and diferents berries notes mis and asociares of Orange. Very good expression of the port Cask extra mature. Finish: great and prolong port wine notes and a little nut taste. Very good Single Malt Scotch

    I doubt that there is a scotch or Irish Whiskey under $300 that I haven't purchased a bottle of or at least tried at my whisky watering hole. There have been many a dram sampled above that price range in the last 3 years. Without question, and by far, this is the best of the bunch. I love the Macallan 25 year old Sherry Cask, but it doesn't hold a candle to this diamond in the rough. It won't be my sole whisky on the shelf. I'll have a Redbreast 12, a Midleton rare, a Balvenie 12, and this bottle. I'll say this though, I can live without the others if I run out. I will not wait to run out of this bottle before buying another. There will always be a full bottle waiting in the wings. This is the only bottle that I take so much care in insuring availability to myself and my guests.

    First tried this scotch when it was called Glenmorangie Port...Loved it from the first sip....With water and ice, this scotch goes down smoothly...proven by myself and friends... As stated by others, this bottle seems to empty itself !!

    I find the port, spices and a lot of youngish wood (pencils, vanilla), but this malt is way too short on actual malt notes IMO.

    Just poured my final glass of the bottle, my grandfather and I have gone through this bottle a lot faster than planned. This is a very morish dram with a sweet nose with a hint of berries which is also present in the taste, a hint of vanilla too. The palate is a bit watery in texture, sweet and slightly spiced with a slight burn, a touch of dried fruits with orange peel too. The finish lingers just enough to leave you wanting more. For the price I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a drop of something different and to feel like you are drinking expensive scotch without breaking the bank

    I have to agree that the kick is something one needs to aware of. Otherwise, a fine,aromatic Single Malt that often goes unappreciated...

    Love it. First bought a"baby bottle" of it at the Edinburgh castle in Scotland. Have been hooked ever since.

    For those who like to taste their Scotch, beware the first sip; it''s got a bigger kick than most in this range. Later sips bring out the nutmeg mostly, less so the raisin and there is no hint of orange here. Still, a fine, hard Scotch one needs to be careful with. I use ice here where I would not usually do with others, including Glenmorangie''s 10 y.o. standard.

    Very nice indeed. Love the burn. Freezes the mouth for a few moments after a hearty swallow.

    I love this. Best one out of the Glenmorangie group. Best $40-50 scotch you can buy

    Not normally a Glenmorangie drinker but picked up a bottle of this on special offer at the supermarket, very impressed indeed. Wonderful nose and very very smooth indeed! Definitely will buy this again.

    A superb whiskey, you can just settle down with a bottle and let it empty itself, the depths are fantastic and very smooth and warming

    As a newcomer to Whisky i was bought a Glenmorangie Original for xmas and am now hooked. So now ive got a bottle of this, loving it only trouble is these bottles seem to leak as they empty rather quickly.

    I bought a bottle of this just before new year (from a supermarket sadly, but only because I had a gift voucher). I opened it as the film "Avatar" was coming on, and settled down into the film with the bottle within reach (which we all know is a rookie mistake). The whisky is sweet and divine, far better than the Lasanta in my opinion. You can keep your 3D glasses; I recommend the Avatar Quinta Ruban version! It made my new year :-)

    I have to agree with jorj. The nose is stunning. Turkish delight and...Christmas, basically. Chai spice. Theres definitely a very faint, almost unnoticeable hint of Fresh hospital bandages and sweet orange peel. Quite different. Short burn, Wonderful long aftertaste. Worth the Zlotys (I'm in Poland at the moment.)
