Creators of Highland Single Malt Scotch Whiskies since 1843. Glenmorangie has long been known for its expertise in wood. Thirty years ago, our whisky creators have innovated in the art of extra-maturation, transferring spirit first matured in ex-bourbon casks, into ex-wine casks, so that it could gain further layers of flavour. Perfect for all those who wish to start or continue their journey into single malts, this award-winning range showcases our skills in cask management.
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 and PX 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 expression's lusciously soft texture and deep, enticingly sweet aroma. On the nose dominates warm spices mix with smooth chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and caramel toffee. On the palate deliciously sweet sherry flavoured sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butterscotch combine to create complex warm spices. Finish is long and satisfying with spiced orange and chocolate covered hazelnuts.
