    The GLENMORANGIE LASANTA is a luscious, elegant single malt whisky that received its finishing touches in sherry barrels.
    Serve neat and at low room temperature or slightly chilled.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Rich, warming, sweet and spicy on the nose with aromas of dried fruits, honey and chocolate, clear sherry note, some toffee, ginger and dates.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Multi-layered and warm on the palate, dried and tropical fruits, nuts, honey, spices, chocolate raisins and butterscotch combine with fine notes of sherry.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is fruity-spicy and long-lasting.

    Nice drinking whisky. Sweetness and seasoning harmonize wonderfully.
    • Nose
      First plum jam, followed by citrus fruits. After a while, it becomes sweeter with raisins. Some vanilla and a hint of cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Strong, mouth-filling start. Creamy and hot-spicy pepper. Clear oranges.
    • Finish
      Fruity and spicy, sweet at first, becoming drier. Nuts.

    Let it breathe! Then full nose with many beautiful aromas, quite complex. The nose in an empty glass impresses with malty fruitiness combined with PX and Olorose notes.
    Overall impressive: smooth, easy to drink, sweet and plum - a nice example of sherry barrel maturation, with PX also playing a good role

  9. Koalafant scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A highly recommended malt with good PLV. Not very complex but balanced and tasty.
    • Nose
      Malty-sweet with subtle notes of strawberries, plums and oranges. Very mild and pleasant and balanced.
    • Taste
      Again sweet and malty with considerably stronger fruit notes of z. As dates, plums and oranges and a balanced bitter notes of dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Very long and pleasantly bitter.
