  1. Lorion scored this whisky 68 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant. A whisky to drink, you do not have to spend a long time verriechen. You can also just leave it out.
    • Nose
      Fruity, subtle sherry influence. Alcohol stings a bit uncomfortable.
    • Taste
      Fruity taste with a good start. the alcohol pushes nicely here without disturbing. Unfortunately, not much else happens. Various fruits without counterpoint. Barely sweet, barely oak, barely vanilla.
    • Finish
      Medium long and .... fruity.

    For me an average, young sherry malt in drinking strength. It's okay, the taste and especially the finish score. I didn't like it on the nose with its artificial fruit note. All in all, clearly a beginner segment and completely arbitrary. In the price range, I would rather recommend Glendronach or Aberlour 12 if you are into this profile.
    • Nose
      76 76
      The first thing on the nose is milk chocolate with a slight sherry influence. Plums, some leather, but everything rather light. The alcohol stings a bit, plus a strange, unnatural note of fruit (strawberry). Well
    • Taste
      80 80
      The mouthfeel is very thin, almost watery. Sweet, but also a clear felling that makes the whole thing a little more exciting. Fine sherry aromas, sweetener, plum, vanilla, caramel, slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium-length finish, accented oak. I like it very well.

    • Nose
      84 84
      Fruity (plum, apricot), honey and vanilla. No sherry bomb, but balanced. Promising.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Sweet red apple, apricot, little pepper and a little bit of cocoa. But quickly thin and watery.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Very little licorice, otherwise only bitter ...

  5. Kaleva scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant Glenmorangie. Easy-drinking, with a good balance. Sherry influence is easily recognized. A good choice for those who doesn't like peated whiskies.
    • Nose
      Sweet, sherry, caramel, some rubbery notes
    • Taste
      Sweet, spicy, malty, dried fruits (apricot, pear)
    • Finish
      Short, warm, sweet

  6. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Glenmorangie Lasanta is the 12 year old, Sherry cask finished, bottled at 43% ABV. It first matures in bourbon casks before being moved over to Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks for a finishing period.
    Lasanta appears with sweet notes of raisin, dried fruits, Christmas cake, apples, polish, spices, stewed apples, ripe fruits and oak. The palate is sweet with raisin, dried fruits, spices, pepper and oak notes. The long finish goes with spices, oak, dried fruits, vanilla notes. It’s sweet, dry and spicy. Lasanta is an interesting and sweet whisky with noticeable bourbon and sherry casks notes. It’s a good whisky for sweet-tooths.

  8. Totoro did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Surprisingly brash (even a bit hot) for the usually-smoother-than-smooth Glenmorangie brand. 

    Nice, powerful nose. 

    Too much sticky, sickly sweet PX influence, though, which spoils the fun once it hits the tongue.
