Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 14 is the distillery's expression that it matures in Bourbon barrels and then finishes in port wine barrels.

This expression was released by the distillery in 2010. Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 12takes its place. The most important difference between the 2 expressions is undoubtedly the increasing maturation time.

A total of 12 years, which the old Quinta Ruban spent 10 years in bourbon barrels and 2 years in port wine barrels, this expression exceeds the top 14. We can say that this increase is mostly due to the time spent in Bourbon barrels.
