Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 12 (İskoç Single Malt, %46 abv)

Nose: Vanilya, meşe ve karamel ön planda. %46 alkol seviyesine göre oldukça ferah ve yumuşak. Şekerli notalara ek olarak çok hafif ahşap. Havalandıkça bourbon karakteri daha çok hissediliyor.

The legs slowly draining from the glass give the appearance of oily whiskey.

Palate: Dried fruits, oak and cinnamon in addition to orange, vanilla and caramel. Quite intense and aromatic.  

Finish: A long sweet finish accompanied by vanilla and cinnamon notes. 

Comment: In short, I can say that Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 12 is a very rich and aromatic expression. The exact sentence I wrote in my tasting notebook is as follows: Delicious but tiring…

    First of all, I should mention that I often make use of your tasting notes and your blog when buying whiskey. You have a very nice page and it has a wide range of information about whiskeys. I often refer to your information before purchasing, for information purposes and when I want to try a different whiskey.
    As a person who likes whiskeys with fruity notes and sweetish aromas, while at the same time highlighting oak and woody scents, I really liked Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 12. I think it is a very different and enjoyable whiskey.
    Thank you for your tasting notes and also for the information you shared. From the first time I started to be interested in whiskey.
    Since then, your page is still the first page I use about whiskey.

      Thanks a lot for your nice comments! I'm glad if my notes are helpful to you 🙂 I love Quinta Ruban too, but if I had to choose it, I'd say Nectar D'or! I think it's a great whiskey...
