    [April, 2000]  I had this dram during a "Taste the difference" tasting at
    Rolandsbogen. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 80
    points.  My notes state it smells more of a cognac than of a whisky.  The taste is very subtle and soft mostly on sweet flavours.  The finish is of medium length.

    By the way, this is not a cognac finish - the whisky matured in the cognac cask for all the 14 years.  There is a thin line between love and hate...

    Original Tasting Notes:

    Colour: Mid golden

    Nose: Fragrant, fresh and sweet. Fresh green toffee apples with marzipan and fudge sweetness are followed by macadamia nuts and rum and raisin ice-cream. There is also freshly toasted oak wood which later gives way to deeper notes of treacle and a hint of tar.

    Taste: Full and flavoursome, the taste envelopes the tongue. Initially sweet and creamy with fudge, then slightly sour with citric acidity as the tang of green apples first encountered on aroma pervades the palate. The dryness of oak is detected throughout, leaving a hint of bitter dark chocolate.

    Finish:  The Finish is long with an oak and nutty character and the tang of apple skins.

    GLENMORANGIE COGNAC MATURED 14yo / 43% OB Gorgeous and fruity, like barley sense, heavy taste derived from cognac Feeling like Moorange in the reverberation, throughout the orange fruit and firm sense of wheat. Currently it is not the finish seen in some distillery, but the limited bottle that all aging is Cognac barrel. The first cup from the conversation with Master is Morange. While tremendously nervous, while somehow calming the mind ... It goes without saying that eyes went to the bottle of the back bar while drinking, and it seemed uneasy. http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/distilled1973/40469478.html

    "A very limited edition Glenmorangie, matured for 14 years in a cask that previous held Cognac."
