Description

Glenmorangie Lasanta is a single malt Scotch whisky that embodies the essence of a warm sunset.  Its 12-year journey begins in the tall stills of Glenmorangie, where it takes shape as a delicate and fruity spirit. This spirit then embarks on a transformative odyssey, spending a decade maturing in ex-bourbon casks crafted from American white oak. The bourbon casks impart a smooth foundation of vanilla and caramel sweetness.

Following this initial maturation, Lasanta takes a turn towards Spain, where it receives a special finishing touch. For an undisclosed period, the whisky is rested in a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. Oloroso sherry casks are known for their dry character, adding notes of spice, toasted nuts, and a hint of dried fruit.  Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, on the other hand, contribute raisiny sweetness and a touch of honeyed richness. This sherry cask finish is the heart of Lasanta’s character, weaving a tapestry of complex flavors over the whisky’s underlying smoothness.

The final product emerges as a rich and full-bodied single malt. On the nose, creamy vanilla and caramel mingle with hints of warming spice and raisin. The first sip reveals a burst of sweet sherry notes, like candied fruit and dates, alongside hints of buttered biscuits and creamy vanilla. These flavors continue to develop on the palate, where they’re met by a touch of oaky spice from the maturation process. The finish is long and luxurious, leaving behind lingering hints of caramel and oak.
