Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

61 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.32 points

  1. marmeladow scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Very good, different for me = a bit more spicy and bitter-sweeter than the Quinta Ruban 12yo, but overall I like it better, so the additional price is ok for me. It got better, different and more complex with every sip. A top Glenmorangie. A pleasure especially for port aficionados
    With 20 gtt water it became sweet-fruity, but less complex and spicy - also very tasty, but more interesting for me without water.
    Once tasted after a Graham Tawny Port 10yo. In a direct comparison with a really good port, you can clearly see how much of the very successful port barrel finishing is in this material

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Taste
      Lightly burnt butter, caramel and toast with brown sugar, dark honey, milk chocolate, strawberries and fresh cherry
    • Finish
      More plum and cherry, leather and rosemary, lavender, cinnamon and nutmeg,

    Big disappointment. The 12-year-old predecessor was significantly better.

  4. kenisam scored this whisky 82 points Member Junior

    The notes are coming from the blind tasting.
    Great nose with a bit disappointing continuation
    • Nose
      86 86
      Red wine, lemon, dry fruits, touch of sulfur, but in a good way
    • Taste
      80 80
      Rather mild, bitter-sweet, a bit spicy
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium length, coffee, sweet, touch of sulfur

  5. Svarttt scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    I remembered the 12er in a fruity and shocking way but that can also be deceiving.

  6. MVDW scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Tasted during a tasting last Sunday. In comparison (not tasted side-by-side) with the 12 year old QR that I have at home, I found it quite sharp in the finish.

  7. The_Independent scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A good whisky with a clear port barrel profile.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Berries, grapes, crushed grape seeds, sawn wood, dust. Behind it peach, caramelized sugar, dark honey.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet and distinctly tart berries, then bitter notes and somewhat astringent, quite spicy. Reminiscent of rose wine.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length, fruity and slightly acidic, creamy cocoa, clear herbs and spices.

  9. Juergen Willi scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    My first Quinta Ruban 14, same league like the old with 12 years.
    • Nose
      Many aromas to find. It's floral, fruity, rich and creamy. For me the best part of the Quinta Ruban.
    • Taste
      Well balanced, the grapes from the port wine and on the other hand the oak influence. I prefer it with half teaspoon water to open up.
    • Finish
      Coffee, herbs, spices, oak wood with mild tannins and chili.

  10. Malty1797 scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    after the change from 12 to 14 years, it's still good, if anything maybe just a tad less full bodied
