Glenmorangie's Quinta Ruban replaced the old Port Wood Finish expression a few years ago. Bottled at a higher strength, enhancing the extra grapey sweetness the old expression was famous for.Tasting Notes (1)
Producer's Tasting Notes
One sniff and you’re immediately transported to a traditional Christmas dinner party, in a candle-lit dining room with the aroma of just-peeled mandarin oranges and Belgian chocolate mint crisps. Walnut shells have been thrown on the roaring fire where their scent mixes with the lingering aroma of nutmeg from the Christmas pudding and the warm, musky scent of sandalwood that emanates from the wood-panelled room
Now add a splash of water for the party to move to the sitting room where icing sugar-dusted pink cubes of rose-scented Turkish Delight sit on a silver tray next to old-fashioned, mint fondants, crystallised orange segments and candied peel. On a side table, a vase of honeysuckle and geranium lends a clear, aromatic pungency to the air
A caress of silk velvet on the tongue gives way to a swathe of rich, dark chocolate-enrobed walnuts leaving in their wake the lemony-rose jelly texture of Turkish delight. Then sugar-coated crystallised orange segments emerge, countered by crisp mint chocolate, adding a chiffon like texture
Lingering memories of dark minty chocolate with the effervescence of orange

Its 5pm on a dark dreich day. I,m sitting at my log fire inside my wee croft at the foot of buchaletive mhor in Glencoe. The minister from the local church knocks on the door and is invited in. He is cold and damp and sits down at the fire to have a blether. " would you like a wee dram to chase away the chill " I ask him " oh that would be lovely" he says. I get a nice whisky glass out the cabinet and pour him a healthy measure of the local spars own brand whisky. " cheers" he says without a smile. Once I get rid of him I,all pour myself a lovely , smooth, warming quinta urban. " drink up minister" I say " your not wanting to be caught out in that fog that's coming down" !
Aye its no to bad. Gets the auld heid spinning. No too sure about the chocolate an winter berries an aw that. Its like Eating a chicken vindaloo. Your months stinging that much ye canny taste it but good aw the same
Very smooth and flavorful!
Oh, this is liquid gold! It shares the lemon/orange notes and the honey-sweetness of the Glenmorangie Astar, but there is this wonderful port finish on top of it, which gives it an absolutely delightful touch of dark chocolate and roses, that is hard to resist. Especially if you let it rest in the glass for some twenty minutes to half an hour for some alcohol to evaporate, it will get you hooked in a nanosecond and never let you go again.
Just the color strikes your eyes. The smell tempts you and when you drink it you can´t believe it. I liked The Lasanta but now I´m loving The Quinta Ruban. Exquisite.
