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.

    As expected, it did warm the cockles of my heart, but it's a little bit too sweet for my tastes.

    Good taste for the most part. However, I found it really thin.

    Held a little whisky tasting session as you do at Christmas. Glenmorangie lassanta, nect dor, sherry cask and Quinta Rubin. Everyone loved the Quinta Rubin and commented on how smooth it was. Big thumbs up from everyone.

    Excellent whisky: 46%, non-chill filtered, full of flavor for the right price.

    Purchased this from the Whisky Exchange as a drink to enjoy over the Christmas period. I had a small dram immediately and my mind is blown by how nice it is. The tasting notes are pretty accurate but that underlying profile of port with the high ABV envelop you in a luxurious warmth as it slips down your throat. This is very much a drink in keeping with the winter and festive season.

    My favourite of all the port cask finished single malts. Very smooth but bold with chocolate and orangey notes. Perfect for the festive season even though I have it allyear round.

    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!
