Reviews

Dave Broom, Whisky Magazine, Issue 67

"Comparison between Old and New World Glenmorangie - 'Better intergration and substantially bigger. No longer just sherry laid on top of Glenmorangie. A significant improvement'"

Description

Elegant but full bodied this whisky has spent ten years maturing in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being extra-matured for a further two years in Oloroso Sherry casks from Jerez in Spain.

Lasanta is Gaelic for warmth and passion, a reminder not just of the Spanish provenance of these Oloroso sherry butts, but also a reflection of this expressions lusciously soft texture and deep, enticingly sweet aroma.

ABV: 46%

Non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouthfeel.
