Glenmorangie Lasanta Sherry Cask 12 Years Old is an elegant but full-bodied whisky, spending 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.
An Oloroso sherry finished whisky from Glenmorangie, the word ‘Lasanta’ derives from the Gaelic for Warmth and Passion. The nose is creamy and of caramel, crème anglaise, and chocolate raisins, quite dry with notes of mixed sweet spices.
The mouthfeel is very thick as you chew through honeyed raisins. There is a little sweet beeswax, melted vanilla ice cream as the sherry weaves gently through the palate, a very buttery expression. Much more of that honey in the creamy finish, it has a slight oaky dryness and a dusting of cocoa powder.
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 lusciously soft texture and deep, enticingly sweet aroma.
