Nose: Creamy and tangy notes of citrus, cinnamon, stewed fruits and caramel-drizzled pannacotta.
Palate: The palate is tropical and creamy with nectarines in yoghurt, acacia honey, peaches in cream and butterscotch.
Finish: Ends on tangy oak and grilled grapefruit with plenty of dark sugar caramelised on top…
Nose: The nose begins with chocolate raisins and sugared mixed peels. Toasted spices, bread and butter pudding and golden syrup complement these aromas, while a note of Angostura bitters lingers beneath.
Palate: Sweet, syrupy cinnamon and drying malt lead, before a suggestion of Terry’s Chocolate Orange rises. A hint of lime rind is present, as are lychees and dates. The backdrop is filled with tobacco leaves and freshly roasted espresso beans, with a little honey-roasted cashew.
Finish: The finish dries and becomes pleasantly rubbery, as a touch of truffle oil emerges.
GLENMORANGIE QUINTA RUBAN PORT
An unbridled spirit.
A whisky journey into the wild, The Quinta Ruban is like a dark and delectable forest, where the wind whistles with gusts of peppermint and dark swirls of chocolate can happen at any moment.
In our giraffe-high stills, it begins soft and fruity, then gets darker and deeper as we let it age for 14 years in bourbon casks and port casks from Portugal. The finished whisky is a thicket of voluptuous flavour combinations. Walnut and black pepper. Mandarin orange and melted marshmallow. Dark chocolate bar and peppermint. And, like stepping into a chocolate-minty-orange unknown, the journey is as delicious as the destination.
Honeyed malt with underlying lemon and apple, plus a touch of nutmeg bringing oaky warmth.
Lots of vanilla and apricot notes, with more apple coming along too. A hint of flaked almond later on.
The honeyed orchard fruit theme continues on the finish, with a pinch of peppercorn.
GLENMORANGIE LA SANTA 12 YO
Bottling the sunset.
If you could sip a sunset, it would taste like The Lasanta, a mouthwatering odyssey bursting with rich spiciness and sundrenched sweetness.
Lasanta begins with our giraffe-high stills, which yield a deliciously delicate and fruity spirit. Next, we mature it in bourbon and sherry casks for 12 years, transforming it into a mouth-watering odyssey bursting with rich spiciness and sun-drenched sweetness. It radiates with raisins, honeycomb and chocolate-covered hazelnuts lightened by cinnamon breezes.
