It’s now the turn of Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Scotch Whisky in the dramming glass!
Flaviar sent me some of their whisky samples to demonstrate their subscription service.
Flaviar was founded back in 2012 by three friends who were all spirits enthusiasts. They used to meet up for spirits tastings, which gradually led to the idea of spirits tasting packs that would enable everyone to do the same.
Flaviar now creates Tasting Packs and each month, their experts select 3 awesome spirits, selected from all over the globe, which are then sent out to Prime Members in 45 ml bottles.
Membership is completely flexible and members can decide to skip a month if they wish.
Flaviar also offers a selection of full-size bottles to enable everyone to discover the world of spirits and learn how to build the best home bar.
If you’re looking for Christmas Presents, Flaviar also has a 2 months subscription gift for under £40, where the buyer can choose the first month’s pack and also add a personal message. The fantastic packaging alone makes it an ideal present!
To accompany this Flaviar has a Free app providing a wealth of information on drinks. One section of the App is The Flavour Spiral which is Flaviar’s innovative way to visualize flavours that can be found in a drink.
Here are my tasting notes on the third dram …
Tasting Notes – Flaviar Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Scotch Whisky (46%)
This dram spent ten years maturing in American white oak casks and then a further two in selected ruby port pipes from the Quintas wine estates of Portugal.
Nose: Creamy caramel, vanilla, fruity port and woody oak.
Palate: Smooth and sugary sweet. Thick, stewed fruit, rich port, chocolate and a little bit of citrus.
Finish: The sweetness goes on and on, very rich and mild. There’s a nice, spicy delight to finish it off and some slight tannin grapefruit at the end.
Overall: This is a very fine dram with some very palatable flavours. The port is nicely balanced with a nice mix of sweet and spice.
Just two more whiskies from the tasting set to go now – Watch this space! 🙂
Many thanks to Flaviar for sending the samples!
