Quinta is the name of the Portuguese winery from which the Port casks used for maturing this Glenmorangie originate. Ruban is the Scots Gaelic word for ruby, referring to the ruby hue that this whisky takes on during maturation.
Indulging in Quinta Ruban at once makes you feel immersed in the Mediterranean landscape of the Portuguese Quinta. To escape the consuming heat of the vineyard, seek the darkness in the cool cellars of the great wine houses in the Douro valley. You can still feel the gentle rocking of the ships that bring the port barrels to the far-away land of Scotland, to serve as a further maturation vessel for the Glenmorangie, giving it a lingering chocolate-mint flavour and ruby-red appearance.
