Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Lasanta
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.65 points
Warm aromas of herbs, soft chocolate and raisins with hints of sweet honey, caramel and toffee
A delicious sweet sherry flavor with notes of sultanas, orange, walnuts, butterscotch and hints of a rich array of warming herbs
Long and pleasant aftertaste of spicy orange and hazelnuts dipped in dark chocolate
- Has been aged for 10 years in American white oak which has been
previously bourbon. After this long period the distillate is poured into
Spanish Oloroso sherry casks for a two year finish to get the whole finish.
- One of the "mothers of all finished whiskys", a perfect composition without disturbing the falling drops, as I was allowed to experience it with other finishes. - I could not detect anything of "sulfur" in my batch, but yes - our taste buds react differently and our brain exerts different associations on the stimuli.
At first I am reminded of a hearty bite in a fresh sugarcane in my youth. Then come toffee, chocolate and then only the thoughts of a sherrydurchtraenktes barrel. All together gives a lively harmony.
Dry sherry barrel; powerful, but soft; clear, but not destructive or too intrusive. Chocolate, fruit, spices.
Everything goes over in the warming finish, pleasantly soft. Maybe there are still orange peels?
Sweet and syrupy, with cinnamon and ginger
Malty and spicy, with vanilla fudge, walnuts and raisins
Slowly drying, with lingering, gingery oak a hint of cocoa
