Glenmorangie Lasanta NV

Winemaker's Notes:

The provenance of Glenmorangie is its lifeblood , its heart, its soul. Standing on the north side of the Tain peninsula in Ross-shire, overlooking the Dornosh Fort, the dystillery's gentle climate protects the distillery spirit as it quietly journeys towards maturity. Glenmorangie is unusual, probably even unique , amongst single Scotch malt whiskies, in that it has most the incredible elegance and complexity of flavour - described as 'Kaleidoscopic'. The 'Glenmorangie The Lasanta' displays a light russet colour. Like the most delicious dessert menu imaginable, 'Lasanta' taunts the senses with chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and smooth caramel toffee. Citrus notes clear the way for the crispy burnt sugar and melting softness of crème brulee to be replaced by the rich aroma of rum and raisin ice cream. The addition of water to Lasanta exposes another menu of juicy dates and caramelised apricots whose sweetness is offset with hazelnut and walnut oil. Notes of dessert sherry wine emerge, mixed with spice and linseed oil to give a sense of cosiness and age-old comfort. On the Palate it shows sweet flavour typical of Spanish sherry with sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butter toffee. The bite of hazelnut tasted through a chocolate coating, spice notes and hints of leather add the overwhelming sense of richness. It is satisfyingly long with spiced orange and chocolate enrobed hazelnuts.
