Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 14 Year unfolds its narrative visually, capturing attention with its deep, russet gold color. The hue, a result of extended maturation in ruby port pipes, presages the intricate experience that awaits.
The olfactory profile is one of depth and complexity. Initial hints of sandalwood and rich cocoa are immediately evident, effortlessly mingling with delicate nuances of dark mint chocolate, followed by undertones of orange zest, eucalyptus and a wisp of walnut.
Upon the first sip, an orchestration of flavors unfold, creating a sensational palate journey. Succulent winter fruits combine effortlessly with dark chocolate, infused with notes of peppermint, tangerines and Seville oranges. As the liquid traverses across the palate, it displays a robust texture, almost velvety, imparting a satisfying mouthfeel.
The finish is long and robust, leaving an endearing warmth in its wake. It concludes with a final flourish of nutty chocolate and mint, settling into a mature finale of tobacco leaf and mild anise. It's a lingering finish that beckons for the next sip.
The whisky achieves a full-bodied mouthfeel, devoid of astringency despite its robust flavors. The alcohol level is perfectly calibrated to lift the myriad of flavors without overpowering them.
