Glenmorangie Lasanta is the 12 year old,  Sherry cask finished expression from Glenmorangie. The Lasanta, bottled at a slightly lower ABV of 43% (originally bottled at 46%). It first matures in bourbon casks before being moved over to Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks for a finishing period. Besides, plenty rich and creamy with dark chocolate, dried fruit and fresh honey.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Evident sherry – dried fruits and dusty caramel. As this is finished in sherry, not matured in it, the effect is milder and the fruit less robust than Macallan or GlenDronach.

Palate: Alternating sweet and tart fruit. Good integration between fruit jam and the layers of caramel, and soft cereals. Good amount of flavor for a $45 single malt.

Finish: Medium-long. A little on the hot side, but with some nice concentrated dried mixed fruit. Ends slightly bitter, with a touch of nuttiness.

Overall: It’s regularly available, consistent in quality, and can be absentmindedly enjoyed, or analyzed in turn. For a desert island, I prefer its pricier sibling, the Nectar d’Or, but the two are in no way similar – you could easily find room on your shelf for both.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Glemorangie Lasanta 12

Quote 1 “Bought this Glenmorangie Lasanta a few months ago and wasn’t impressed with my first taste. Tried it again today, and the bottle is improving. Big fan of the Original, and I think this is a nice complement to the 10 year.  The finish isn’t as long as I might like, probably related to the chill filtering, but you can’t have everything I suppose.

Quote 2 “The Lasanta is definitely worth the money. Prices vary, but I can usually find it for $45-50. Light and fruity on the nose, with a hint of caramel and chocolate. But the initial hit on the palate of spice followed by mild peat, smoke and nutty undertones. The finish has a linger of the spice and peat, and tossing it over the rocks or with a couple of drops of water expands the florals in the body.

Quote 3 “I don’t know much about scotch. However, I bought a few high priced scotches that were basically a waste of my money. Then I saw a YouTube video where the was a scotch whiskey expert. He gave this particular one a good recommendation, so I purchased my first bottle of Glenmorangie. I will drink this again and keep a bottle in my house. It was smooth and had some spice to it. For a beginner, I would recommend this one.”
