Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

40 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.66 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,

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  10. zero_limits scored this whisky 81 points Newbie

    Good but not exceptional. Smart everyone’s whisky. May be served and well accepted alongside your afternoon tea with your dear relatives ;-) Not sure if the former Quinta Ruban 12 is the better choice!?
