Glenmorangie 14 Port Cask Finish

 The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)

Occasions, tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel. 

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf
I found it somewhat bitter-sweet and not as smooth so does not get the top spot. I have tried their 12-year-old expression but I liked 10 year old the most. The color, aroma of this whisky is simply out of this world though. 
Occasion- Dinner with friends
SJ's Pro tip- Add a few cubes of ice to mellow down the high ABV
Alternates- Glenmorengie 10 Lesser age statement, lesser price. On my Top Shelf 
Food Pairing- Pork burrito
Feel(After tasting)- Amazed ☺
