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

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.

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

Full, taste, complex, kicked butt!

A friend recommended it, I thank him. It was excellent. I paired it with a nice cigar and enjoyed an end of day chill time on the porch overlooking acres of open fields with a star filled sky. Nice end to the day!

One of my Favourites

I usually drink Islay whiskey, Laphroig and Ardbeg in particular, but this stuff is just awesome. It's a seriously good quality malt, especially for the price, and it's just flat-out delicious. I'll always have a bottle of this stuff on my shelf.

Uisce batha

Wouldn’t recommend and certainly won’t purchase again,Glenmorangie was my favorite whiskey back in the eighties.Like many great distillers now owned by large conglomerates.

12th July 2020

New to Scotch

I had a small sample pack of 4 Glenmirangie scotch whiskeys. This was my favorite!

26th June 2020

Not my thing

Found the port influence overpowering, not to my taste unfortunately. Tastes like old, sour gone off wine.

Could possibly be a bad bottle, but I’m not buying another one to find out.

13th June 2020

Velvet then bold.

Oh yes, delivery as advertised. First port finish buy and Glenmorangie buy...I like. Defined flavors don’t always register for this amateur palate, but the finish is dark chocolate and sweet/tart cherries.

23rd May 2020

Excellent and bold.

Excellent in every single aspect. Complex, full, bold and stimulating.

8th May 2020

One of my favourite whisky

A beautiful dram

1st May 2020

Nearly as good as the old portwood

This whisky is one of the finest smelling whiskies I’ve ever stuck my nose near to - taste wise it ain’t too shabby either. Strong hints of chocolate and caramel, it’s quite thick, very very (whisper it) smooth. Can’t recommend enough. Knocked off half a point because let’s face it nothing is perfect

This is a nice whisky, yes it is.
But knowing how sublime the Quinta Ruban 12 is I am totally gutted to find that this is the replacement.
Why tinker with one of the best whiskies, it was in a league of its own with only a select few to rival.
Now it is just “nice”
I used to repeatedly buy the 12, I have finished the 14 but will not buy another bottle, better out there on the market.
Appreciate the experimental nature of glenmorangie, it has led to some gems, but this time it has discontinued an all time favourite of mine.
RIP you will be missed

10th April 2020

already demanding

Full of flavor when served warm. cold-flavored raw.

14th February 2020

What happened

Two words to describe this would be, hot and bitter. Bring back the 12 now.

11th February 2020


I never had the QR12 but had few bottles of the Lasanta and really liked it. QR14 is much better. It has so many different tastes, and yet so smooth. It is especially good when looking on the price tag.

20th January 2020

Huge downgrade

Nothing like the 12 yr old. More of an alcohol taste. The 12 year old was my favorite. When the 14 yr is gone I will not be back

16th January 2020

If your looking for a replacment for 12yo try...

Bushmils 16yo...
Yes I know but trust me on the sunscreen ;)

Be prepared for ur wallet to sting though lol

Previous rvw hit the nail on the head, here I'll give u £80 for one of ur limited edition 12yo's jks.

10th January 2020

QR14 is good, but QR12 was a masterpiece.

Not as good as the 12 year-old. This is good, but nowhere near as good as the 12. This version lacks depth with less of a port influence. Less of a fruity aroma, as well. I bought 4 bottles of the 12 before they disappeared and I'm glad that I did.

5th January 2020

OK but Inferior to the 12 year old

Less smooth and inferior generally to the 12 year old, tested side by side.

2nd January 2020

Inferior to the 12 year old

Inferior substitute To the 12 year old- totally agree. Tried side by side- with 2 separate bottles of the 14 year old, hoping I got a dud :-(

The 12 year old was my favourite Glenmorangie so far.

The 12 year was exceptional. Now once I’ve finished my last stashed bottle I will sadly have to search other brands again....

31st December 2019

Beautifully sweet

Fantastic whisky- happened upon this at the grill in Aberdeen and it’s a very sweet, easy drinking speyside. Worth every penny!

25th December 2019

Inferior substitute

This is inferior to the 12 year old. So sad the 12 year old is gone - it was exceptional. This is a second rate substitute that lacks the dark, full depth of it's predecessor

20th December 2019


I loved the "portwood" finish back in the day. The original QR was great. My expectations are high for the 14 yr old.

8th December 2019

Different not worse

Less red berry fruit, which I luv'd in the 12, but a fraction smoother, also more velvety on the tongue.

Not worse just different, good wood is scarce & I think the extra 2 years is adequate in compensating for the ever decreasing flavour you get every refill.

Shame though I still think the 12 was (alas poot Yorick) better imo... But only just!

19th November 2019

Best bang for your buck

Picked up a bottle for the first time yesterday. Excellent taste with a great price point. I have a new favorite whisky.

10th November 2019

A beautiful Whisky

A beautiful Whisky. Sweet and warm. No smoke, but a sweet aromatic perfume. On the palate, just cake and fulfillment. Highland Perfection from Glenmorange for sipping and savoring.

4th October 2019


It was the older 12 year expression that first got me into Scotch, this is fantastically smooth. A bit sweeter than I would usually go for but the complexity is wonderful and the price bumps it up half a star to 5

Exceptional Scotch - Explosion Of Flavor

For the longest time I wanted try either the 12 year Lasanta or Quinta Ruban, but I never got around to trying these. I skipped from the Original 10 year to this masterpiece 14 year Quinta Ruban. This scotch might be one of the most elegant, complex whiskies I have ever come across. The nose will yield a chocolate, citrus, and spicy aroma. Upon the tasting, you are greeted with spice yet velvet sensation that soon turns into a wave of chocolate and citrus flavors that complement one another. The medium to long finish ends with a chocolate mint flavor and light citrus ending. I am impressed with the smooth and spicy flavor from this scotch so much I do not even feel the 46% ABV. Do yourself a favor and try this unique scotch for a great experience.

14th September 2019


Very satisfying. Great for sipping around a campfire. The fresh air of outdoors, the smoke from the fire, combine to heighten the senses to appreciate the experience of this whisky.

31st August 2019

No better

Inferior to the 12 year old to my taste. I've favoured the 12 year old for several years and after a direct comparison over 10 days, it comes out on top by a long way. It's perfect, most likely unbeatable. I only hope they don't meddle any more or discontinue it.

13th August 2019


Very disappointed. Tasted face to face with the 12 yr old and there was no comparison. The 12 year old was subtle perfection and the 14 year old is kind of run of the mill. Color. Nose. Taste. All off and inferior to the 12 year old. What the heck happened? I wanted to love it.

10th August 2019

Even better than the 12

The only other port finished whisky I have ever had is the QR 12, so it’s the only thing I can compare this too. All I can is that there is an extra two years of bourbon cask toffee and spice to balance out the tart fruit sweetness from the port finishing. Excellent stuff. If you love the 12, or good whisky in general, be sure to give this a try.
