Glenmorangie Quinta 14yo Bottling Note

Glenmorangie's Quinta Ruban 12 Year Old is a fantastic Port cask finished expression, and now the distillery has developed upon the recipe with The Quinta Ruban 14 Year Old! The whisky is initially matured in bourbon casks before being moved over to ruby Port casks, imparting waves of scrumptious fruit and chocolate notes to the spirit. Superb as a postprandial dram.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Summer fruit tart with a sprinkling of icing sugar, aromatic cedar, milky coffee and almond pastries.

Palate: Chocolate mousse, Bourbon biscuits, orange oil, more almond notes (now toasted), blackcurrant and raisin.

Finish: Lasting richness of stewed berries and dark chocolate.

Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban 14 Year Old Reviews

Disappointing

If Glenmorangie had never made the 12 yo then this would probably be fine... but they did and this isn't. Disappointing all the way - bring back the 12 year old.

Astounding what a difference an extra 2 years makes.

Nose: Spice, tangerine, rose petal come through as well. The result is both complex and balanced.
Palate: First flavours are spice, but nut and citrus notes follow. I was expecting this whisky to be as spirited as its 12yo sibling, but not so. The additional 2 years has changed this from a sharp to very smooth. Makes for easy drinking.
Finish: Long and more complex than a regular Glenmorangie should be. There's chocolate with citrus and, finally, a hint of port.
Summary: I was astounded at the difference 2 years makes. I was not too enamoured with the 12yo Quinta, but the 14yo is superb.

Not what I hoped for

Hot and sweet, not sure that is the best combination. A disappointing dram.

12 yr much better that the 14yr

I was excited when I ordered the 14 year old version bit absolutely gutted when I tasted it.
Don’t get me wrong, it is ok, BUT NOWHERE near the 12 year old! Please bring back the 12 year version.

Bring back the 12 yr

The 12 yr is much better. After tasting the 14 yr, I purchased the remaining 12 yr bottles in my area.

While good, not what it says on the bottle.

Nose: Breaded dessert. Damned good.

Palate: Mid mouth feel. An autumn fire wooded spiced evening. Where is the port?

After: Not long, not bad, mostly spice descends.

QUITE A NICE DRAM THIS

A SPOT OF O2 BRINGS LOTS OF ALMOND ON NOSE, AND ORANGES AND MORE ALMONDS PLUS SUMMER FRUITS IN MOUTH. NOT A LONG FINISH BUT WELL CONTROLLED. THIS IS BEST WITH A SPLASH OF WATER, AND IS IMO THUS MORE COMPLEX AND SMOOTHER THAN THE OLD 12.

Pleasant but no Quinta Ruban 12yo

If you're trying to replace the 12, as I was, this will not do the job. The complexity and most importantly the finish are just not comparable.
That said, it's a fair whisky in its own right, it's pleasant on the palate, with the port finish giving it a distinct taste. Its finish isn't remarkable, the flavour disappears quickly. Will evolve considerably upon opening, so if you don't like it at first leave it a few weeks before going back to it.

Will be on Xmas list

Love this, but really enjoyed the 12, should bring it back, choice is good
