The Glenmorangie Lasanta 12 Years Old: fruity and sweet but kind of bland.
The Glenmorangie Lasanta 12 Years Old is initially matured for 10 years in ex-bourbon casks before being moved over to Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks for a 2 year finishing period. This expression is chill filtered, bottled at 43% ABV and contains artificial colouring. The average price of this bottle is around $55.
On the nose: sweet oranges, vanilla, caramel and dried fruits. Not much complexity but quite a robust nose.
On the palate: quite strong for a 43% ABV whisky. Sweet and fruity notes are dominant with some caramel and walnuts in the back.
Finish: medium length with some nuttiness and bitter after tastes.
Overall: a nice sipping whisky. It's a bit bland and boring but still tastes good.
