    I bought several times at the airport and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s been a year since the last one so I picked it up locally and was really disappointed. Not nearly as good as I remember it

    Basins, chocolate, and a slight taste of orange. Very delicious scotch. Pairs well with a cigar. One of my personal favorites.

    The port comes through strong. It smells like port and tastes like port. Which is great! It carries with it all the complexity of that sweet wine. All that port flavors comes over, under, and through the Glenmorangie. It's a cutting taste. Get it before it's gone!

    I tried this at a high end restaurant recently. After dinner, I immediately bought a bottle! It's luscious, and will be one of my favorites at the sweeter end of the spectrum!

    This is an excellent whisky to give someone who thinks smooth=good when it comes to whisky. It's 46% so it's far from smooth and yet the taste is so immense and in-your-face that it should be instantly accessible to even the most inexperienced of whisky drinkers. Delicious!

    Cask finished whisky has never been my thing. Even though I prefer big peat and/or sherry maturation, I have a soft spot for the Glenmorangie 10yr original because it is the first single malt that I ever had. While there are some of the nutty banana flavors of the 10yr present, this stuff is completely different. In the glass it almost looks like rose wine. On the nose all I get is fruit. On the palate there is some spice (nutmeg?) mixed with the fruit. This is not the fruit of sherry maturation. It's the kind of sharp sweet/tangy that was present in the fruit punch I loved as a kid. The finish is sweet and of medium length. The port is always present throughout. Overall, this will do nothing to make finished whisky ny favorite. That being said it's good unique stuff, that is a nice change of pace from the Islay, coastal and sherry matured whiskies that I love. I recommend that you give it a try, if you haven't already.

    To experience the taste notes, you really have to place it on the tip of your tongue. There is orange, raisins and bit of spices. I thought the smokiness could be improved to increase it a bit more as that would have balanced the sweetness of orange. The sweet aftertaste of orange and raising is a bit overpowering and does injustice to otherwise a great malt.

    Not everyone will like the idea of whiskey with a slightly sweet aftertaste. With products such as Jack Daniels Honey becoming popular, these drinks seem to be in ascendency. In my opinion, Quinta Ruben is one of the best.

    It has a gorgeous faint ros? hue that is bright and clear. On the nose it is floral and fruity, with red berries, honeycrisp apple, watermelon and an allusion to cotton candy. To taste it is quite thick and rich, with a little bit of heat on the tip of the tongue; a sophisticated integration of wood and wine-soaked fruit leads to a long finish with a subtle mint note. Perfect after dessert. It's excellent.

    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.
