Nose: Lots of fruit - dark cherries, prunes, dates. A slight earthiness from the port perhaps. A pleasant malty sweetness.
Palate: Smooth and sweet. The brighter notes normally found in Glenmorangie are definitely subdued, but it's very nice.
Finish: It's in no hurry as it eases itself off your tongue with more soft, dried fruit sweetness.
Overall: A very relaxing whisky, markedly different to the more modern Quinta Ruban.
