Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 46%

The New Port Wood version from Glenmorangie. Good to see that it is at 46% and non-chillfiltered.

Nose: Light, fresh, rose wine like and ice cream. A bit of mint and a touch of raspberry jam and maybe plums.

Taste: The soft fruits are coming through and this is exceptionally smooth. There is also a more creamy notes coming through.

Finish: A little bit short actual, softer than the LeSanta. But the brief finish is pleasently fruity.

Comment: Dangerously drinkable - I like this actual but as an everyday drinker or session whisky not something that is overly complex.

Score: 84/100
