    10 years of maturing in American, bourbon oak barrels and 2 years in Sherry Oloroso and Sherry Pedro Ximenez barrels. Lasanta means "warmth and passion"

    Smell: The slightly hot alcoholic feeling makes the wine come to the cut. The rich PX Shirley barrel style, a lot of refurbished old furniture, old leather, chocolate, cloves and sour ginger. Strength, let the whole body renew its vitality, nutmeg, toffee, cumin, chocolate puree. The power of the tail section is not reduced at all. The tobacco leaf oil, cooked Pu'er, and the tantalizing aroma are all in one. The Trinity, the experience is rich and balanced, it is really amazing.

    Drink: The wine is light and smooth, gentle and comfortable, full-bodied and sweet, rich heather tea, high-sweet PX Shirley barrel, twins, and gradually fades together, and finally there is no negative taste.

    Sense: As an entry-level Shirley barrel style wine, Lasanta definitely gave an unexpected return. The richness and balance of its fragrance can be said to be amazing, PX&Oloroso&Bourbon, three-legged stand, support each other. Powerful. The taste continues Granger's consistent lightness and smoothness, and there is nothing wrong with it. I have given enough homework, but I am more looking forward to the experience of burning and astringency to enhance the taste. Anyway, I still keep a good fraction.

    Room temperature when drinking: 26 ℃

    Viewing Eyes: Golden smell Nose: The spicy woody notes brought by wood, pepper, and ginger are the main lines. Milk chocolate, butter cream and vanilla are used as auxiliary lines. Scented with a little oil and gas (crisp whistle), decorated with pine nuts, white sesame seeds, a little fermented dough. A little floral scent appeared in the second half, biased towards white flowers, and Xu was jasmine gardenia. Granger's classic style is suppressed by wood.
    Tasting Palate: peaches, skimmed milk, toasted crispy wheat kernels. The middle part is woody milky, ginger white pepper is very strong in the back section, with a spicy finish. Finish: long, cocoa powder, high lego drink, orange zest, white clever, light strawberry chocolate body at the end Body: medium Light, watery grease

    Nose: 84/100
    Palate: 84/100
    Finish: 84/100
    Body: 84/100
    Overall: 84/100

    Overall: Not many surprises at all, I feel that Granger's own characteristics are not fully reflected. The body of the wine is relatively weak and the duration of palate is relatively short.
