GLENMORANGIE SHERRY CASK FINISH LASANTA AGED 12 YEARS
- 43% ALC / VOL ( 86 PROOF )
- SHERRY CASK FINISH
- SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKEY
This is the 12 year old, Sherry cask finished expression from Glenmorangie, the Lasanta, bottled at a slightly lower ABV of 43% (originally it was bottled at 46%). It first matures in bourbon casks before being moved over to Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks for a finishing period. Plenty rich and creamy with dark chocolate, dried fruit and fresh honey.
Highlands, Scotland- Lasanta means Warmth and Passion in Gaelic and that is what this single malt delivers. Sweet chocolate and toffee aromas lead into a full flavor containing hints of orange, walnut and butter toffee. Long finish, with spiced orange and chocolate hazelnut notes.
My husband who was born in Scotland says for the price this is HIS favorite scotch!
