  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.

      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.

    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.

  7. Totoro did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    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.

  10. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The nose becomes darker and more richly sweet with time. When I first opened the bottle, too much time would bring an alcohol burn to the finish, but after about 3 weeks and 1/3 of the bottle finished, that stopped . The development of the taste is moderately paced, but picks up toward the finish. It fades slowly from the oak and sherry tannins for about a minute. I liked the Quinta Ruban, but this one has a much more amenable character.  
    • Nose
      Tangerines and faint roasted almonds, dark chocolate covered raspberries, dates and malt, baking spices (clove, cinnamon, and corriander) and brown sugar, soft oak and oak char, mixed apple compote (fuji and granny-smith) and lemon with zest, and candied ginger. 
    • Taste
      Soft oak, a dash of spiced honey, olorosso sherry (dark fruits and tannins) and citrusy malt, slightly fermented dried fruits (figs, dates, and papaya), heavily spiced baked apples, a dash of walnut oil, and a touch of violet candies.
    • Finish
      Tart green apples, dark-chocolate covered espresso beans, faint black pepper, and a mix of oak and sherry tannins.
