Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Reviews
Producer's Tasting Notes
Aroma: One sniff and you’re immediately transported to a traditional Christmas dinner party, in a candle-lit dining room with the aroma of just-peeled mandarin oranges and Belgian chocolate mint crisps. Walnut shells have been thrown on the roaring fire where their scent mixes with the lingering aroma of nutmeg from the Christmas pudding and the warm, musky scent of sandalwood that emanates from the wood-panelled room
Now add a splash of water for the party to move to the sitting room where icing sugar-dusted pink cubes of rose-scented Turkish Delight sit on a silver tray next to old-fashioned, mint fondants, crystallised orange segments and candied peel. On a side table, a vase of honeysuckle and geranium lends a clear, aromatic pungency to the air
Taste: A caress of silk velvet on the tongue gives way to a swathe of rich, dark chocolate-enrobed walnuts leaving in their wake the lemony-rose jelly texture of Turkish delight. Then sugar-coated crystallised orange segments emerge, countered by crisp mint chocolate, adding a chiffon like texture
Finish: Lingering memories of dark minty chocolate with the effervescence of orange

Oh, this is liquid gold! It shares the lemon/orange notes and the honey-sweetness of the Glenmorangie Astar, but there is this wonderful port finish on top of it, which gives it an absolutely delightful touch of dark chocolate and roses, that is hard to resist. Especially if you let it rest in the glass for some twenty minutes to half an hour for some alcohol to evaporate, it will get you hooked in a nanosecond and never let you go again.
Just the color strikes your eyes. The smell tempts you and when you drink it you can´t believe it. I liked The Lasanta but now I´m loving The Quinta Ruban. Exquisite.
I plan on buying a case tomorrow. I don't know if it's "the best" single malt out there, but I've never enjoyed one as much. Just delicious.
Glenmorangie has produced so many outstanding scotches and I LOVE this one. I frequented the old Portwood finish which was excellent but this one is superb.
Quinta Ruban 12 years is one of the best! and, man, have I tried them many! and spent some buck on them!
Simply the Best
I have drank Glenmorangie 10years for some time,I fancied trying Quinta Ruban 12years for sometime, now I have, for me it is THE BEST single malt you can buy it is a little more expensive but when you sip it is just Majical.It really is what it says on the box and more.I take my hat off to The Sixteen Men Of Tain.
On Single Malt TV it says it spends 10 years in oak and then another 2 years in port pipes.So it's a 12.
I received my bottle as a gift for a job I did for my brother-in-law's employer. I'd been eyeing this at my local reseller for a few months, and hadn't decided between this and it's sister (La Santa) finish. What an absolutely enrapturing dram. I've long favored the "regular" Glenmorangie 10Yr, and this proves that their efforts to uplift their market name pushes past naysayers. Enjoy it, savor it. I know I will be back for a Quinta Ruban once more.
I have never even liked whisky before but was only tempted to try quinta ruban as it was a particular favourite of my partners and it would have been rude to refuse and let him drink alone!!! I am glad I did as the experience was wonderful. So smooth and delicate and warming. An evening tipple I look forward to trying again if I'm ever asked.
