Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 12 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Producer

    Nose: Dark mint chocolate, tangerines and Seville oranges mingle with sandalwood and walnut before giving way to a spicy finish of pepper and nutmeg.

    Palate: Mint chocolate and walnuts envelop the palate like velvet, laying the foundations for rose, Turkish delight and sweet Seville oranges.

    Finish: Long-lasting silky aftertaste leaving dark chocolate mints and traces of orange.

    For the price this is a very honest whisky that can foot it with the big boys. Even the most seasoned whisky drinker would agree this is above average. The 46% adds value. Lovely

    I am not someone who gets all the subtle flavours of whisky but I do find this one to be very smooth and easy to drink. It is quite sweet and most enjoyable.

    Very smooth. Flavorful notes with a hint of chocolate. Highly recommend it. Too good to share with my friends. Saving it all for me!

    An awesome taste treat! Tasted Glenmorangie during a trip to Scotland, but this one was even better!

    It's very well crafted, and delivers strongly on the creaminess and smoothness I was expecting. I was expecting the Port and other flavors to be subtle, but they are actually very bold and forward: chocolate, orange, nuts. The taste is very very sweet, too much so in my opinion, like having a big mouthful of dessert. That's what my brain says at least, because my palate seems to not care, as I ended up helping myself to four glasses of it on the first night I opened the bottle.

    Probably one of the nicest, smoothest and warmest whiskys out there. It's pure bliss in a bottle, not to mention an unusual find. You won't get it in Tesco that's for sure.

    I actually prefer the 10 Year Old Original over this. I had one bottle and although this is excellent but it just isn’t as good, hence 4 stars. I may be in the minority but I feel the Original is the better product. That remains my drink of choice

    A lovely enjoyable whisky at a super price. I'm no expert but I found the style and character references spot on which reflects my high rating. For my taste however I found it a fraction too sweet. Even so, have and am enjoying the experience.

    I bought several times at the airport and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s been a year since the last one so I picked it up locally and was really disappointed. Not nearly as good as I remember it

    Basins, chocolate, and a slight taste of orange. Very delicious scotch. Pairs well with a cigar. One of my personal favorites.

    The port comes through strong. It smells like port and tastes like port. Which is great! It carries with it all the complexity of that sweet wine. All that port flavors comes over, under, and through the Glenmorangie. It's a cutting taste. Get it before it's gone!

    I tried this at a high end restaurant recently. After dinner, I immediately bought a bottle! It's luscious, and will be one of my favorites at the sweeter end of the spectrum!

    This is an excellent whisky to give someone who thinks smooth=good when it comes to whisky. It's 46% so it's far from smooth and yet the taste is so immense and in-your-face that it should be instantly accessible to even the most inexperienced of whisky drinkers. Delicious!
