A very relaxed port wood finished Glenmorangie. This is an earlier bottling than the distillery's current port wood finished expression, Quinta Ruban, and it's really quite different.
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.

I bought 2 bottles of this fine scotch. The description is spot on though I would like to add that it is a little heavier than a normal single malt Not heavy in a bad way though. This is a fine single malt for a nice single glass of scotch. I like it in a cold glass to chill it just a bit.

No, not really, although the Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish single malt 12 Year was started off in American Oak for the vast majority of its aging and finished off in port wood pipes for the finish, as with the Quinta Rubin. There are comparisons between this and the readily available Quinta Rubin, which has a more in-your-face taste and finish. The Port Wood Finish is more muted and relaxed, easier to drink and to be honest better than the QR. I think it's discontinued but not sure but pick up a bottle if you find one, any Glenmo fan will want one of these in the collection. I only know of 1 more bottle which I will gladly pick up in case there isn't any more in the future. Quinta Rubin is more for a perky mood while this is more for reflective moods. Both are great, get this first as its harder to find. 4 stars.
