    • Nose
      Great sultana raisins richness starts off the nose. There are also some figs complemented by a nice scent of toffee. Also a light note of vanilla. Now it becomes spicy with tones of gingerbread spices and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Sevilla oranges all over! A light sherry taste follows, complemented by raisins and dates. I taste some honey next. And also berry jam. At the end nuts and spices like ginger and nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Medium-long. Oranges peels from the same sevilla oranges ????. Chocolate and ginger lingers on.

    The Glenmorangie Lasanta 12 Year surprised me. It’s very approachable, easy drinking, has many of the classic smooth Sherry notes I’ve come to expect from some Highland distilleries, but it’s much lighter, more Summer stone fruit (like apricots). But it's also not as complex as GlenDronach 12.

      Caramel sweetness, light sherry aromas, gentle.

  7. Rauchkopp did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    • Nose
      Relatively light gold, fast middle legs.

      Immediately clear peach with a touch of flowers - mixed care products (?!) And a lot of earth! Topsoil. Honey mustard! (Where did I get this from?) Can remember once ate a coarse / whole grain sweet honey mustard. Dill! Freshly chopped. Now some _fresh_ wood (not quite new furniture) comes through. Somehow textile dust later.
    • Taste
      Very mild! The peach that has faded into the background is back. A very light, very very pleasant ginger - "roughness".
    • Finish
      Butter!! in feel (oily) AND taste! Long and clear!

      Conclusion: estimate 43% vol., Half bourbon, half oloroso barrel with an adventurous finish, 12 or 15 years.

    Well built Scotch whisky, just a small lack of power
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sherry, Apricot and chocolate
      Port wine nose
    • Taste
      85 85
      Prune, bitter orange
    • Finish
      83 83
      Not so long, too short in my opinion, but it's a good daily dram
