Glenmorangie Lasanta – 12 year old

glenmorangie lasantaGlenmorangie Lasanta Extra Matured in Sherry Casks- 12 year old.

Redolent with the “warmth and passion” of Jerez, Glenmorangie Lasanta is characterised  by rich, spicy, nutty notes from the highest quality Spanish Oloroso sherry casks selected for extra maturation.

Extra Matured: In the early 1990’s our passion for wood led us to experiment: we extra matured Glenmorangie in a different cask for only the last couple of years of maturation. To great success! This ‘finishing’ touch adds further characteristics to Glenmorangie’s fine taste: the Glenmorangie Extra Matured range was born.

A Journey of Passion: Our ongoing quest for perfection takes us on many journeys, exploring the world for inspiration. After a painstaking search, we have secured the very best oak casks from some of the great vineyards of the world for our  Glenmorangie Extra Matured range.

In the Footsteps of Pioneers: Our pursuit of perfection has endured over 165 years, starting in 1843 with the installation of the tallest whisky stills in Scotland. It has continued with our insistence on using American white oak casks in which to age our whisky. These casks are idea for Glenmorangie, adding a natural sweetness to the subtle tastes of our spirit. As we only use our casks twice whilst many others refill their casks may times, Glenmorangie benefits from both the quality and freshness of the wood.

A Legendary Legacy: At our Highland distillery, Glenmorangie (Scots Gaelic for ‘Glen of Tranquility’), balances this thirst for innovation with our long years of experience to craft the perfectly balanced dram.

Non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV, Glenmorangie Lasanta is full-bodied and rich in texture, with a wonderfully long and smooth finish.

Tasting Notes:

Aroma: Warm spices mix with smooth chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and caramel toffee.
Taste: Deliciously sweet sherry flavoured sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butterscotch combine to create complex warm spices.
Finish: Long and satisfying finish with spiced orange and chocolate covered hazelnuts.
Colour: Light russet
