  • Intro:

    A re-release of an already well known product, Glenmorangie’s Quinta Ruban ups the age statement an additional two years to bring this release to 14 years of age. Bottled at 46% ABV with no coloring or filtering and surprisingly priced exactly where the old bottles were priced, this is an interesting release to say the least.

  • Nose:

    Rich tobacco, jammy fruits, cocoa and brown butter. Malt character is there, the port isn’t overpowering. Rich and dessert forward.

  • Taste:

    Moderate mouth feel. Faint pinprick of heat. Plenty of caramel, toffee, some Glenmorangie bitterness. A wave of juicy fruit washes in. Red berries, currants, some grape and jam.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium finish. Rich, stewed fruits, some cocoa and toffee.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is pretty nice. Builds on the great blocks already laid with the original Quinta and keeps going.

  • Score:
