Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban-  You can stop compulsively searching for the perfect scotch to share , I found it for you.  Each time I’m asked for a recommendation for newbies I’m flummoxed.  I dutifully ask, what do they like, yada yada…. Here is a rich and roundly mellow malt that ticks off all the boxes.  The taste is lightly fruity and thick with a wonderful lengthy finish.  I found some soft spices and caramel in the middle and near perfection as a dram to share.  The secret here is finishing the aging in port wine casks which infused the whisky with sweetness and color .  I caution you to avoid any hocus pocus (added water or ice) , as you’d spoil the poetry.  Buy a pair of bottles , it won’t break the bank and you’ll be the hit of the evening, snobbishly rated a solid 7 , now share the wealth.

    If this is only a “7”, I can’t begin to imagine a “10”…
