Glenmorangie's Quinta Ruban replaced the old Port Wood Finish expression a few years ago. Bottled at a higher strength, enhancing the extra grapey sweetness the old expression was famous for.

Tasting Notes

  • 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

    Its 5pm on a dark dreich day. I,m sitting at my log fire inside my wee croft at the foot of buchaletive mhor in Glencoe. The minister from the local church knocks on the door and is invited in. He is cold and damp and sits down at the fire to have a blether. " would you like a wee dram to chase away the chill " I ask him " oh that would be lovely" he says. I get a nice whisky glass out the cabinet and pour him a healthy measure of the local spars own brand whisky. " cheers" he says without a smile. Once I get rid of him I,all pour myself a lovely , smooth, warming quinta urban. " drink up minister" I say " your not wanting to be caught out in that fog that's coming down" !

    Very smooth and flavorful!

  • Brixomatic 8 June 2012

    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.

  • Anonymous 2 December 2011

    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.

  • Redd Stahl, Texas 14 September 2011

    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.

  • Slobodan Mitrovic 29 April 2011

    Quinta Ruban 12 years is one of the best! and, man, have I tried them many! and spent some buck on them!

  • Richard, Canada 9 January 2011

    Simply the Best

  • Andy Steel, County Durham 24 December 2010

    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.

  • Jim, Oxford 21 October 2010

    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.

  • Marcelo L ( Florida ) 28 June 2010

    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.

  • Cosmic Bob 22 April 2010

    I liked this so much that this was the first time I ever bought a case of any whisky. I still have three bottles left, but don't expect them to last too much longer. Highly recommended, especially for the price.

  • Bluesman 28 March 2010

    Got me a bottle yesterday, great taste. A few drops of water made it even better

  • James Saxon 13 March 2010

    A profoundly delicious whisky. This is my first experience of a Port-finished malt (besides The Dalmore 1263 but that's matured in just about everything under the sun) and if the Balvenie 21yo exceeds this when I manage to track one down then it shall be quite a dram indeed. Incredible value, too, in my opinion.

  • Shawn 19 February 2010

    Smooth and mellow. Perfet. Alson the boklet states it is aged 10 years.

  • Brian - Brisbane, Australia 31 January 2010

    Had friends over for dinner last night, and shared my latest discovery with them after the meal. It was a first time experience for my guests and all agreed that this is the best whisky that they had ever tasted. An age indication would be nice, but it does not detract from this truly great whisky. It is so smoooth!!

  • Baggie Boy 7 January 2010
