A Whisky to Chew On.

The Glenmorangie Distillery
 was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery. It lies just north of Tain, on the wind-swept coastline of Easter Ross. Their stills are the tallest found in Scotland — as tall as a giraffe, apparently — of the same design as those used in the 1880's which were in fact second-hand Gin stills. Which means that only the very lightest vapors make it to the top, resulting in a smooth and elegant Scotch Whisky.
 
In 2004 the distillery was sold to LVMH, a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate. It has since adopted a brave strategy of giving their drams French-sounding names, which on the looks of things, has payed out for them.

Glenmorangie Lasanta was awarded silver outstanding by the IWSC last year. It is finished in Oloroso Sherry casks to give it a very huggable character that will keep you warm through winters and loved through summers. It is what we would call a chewing Whisky as it expands in your mouth to reveal the taste profile gleaned from ten years in American white oak ex-Bourbon casks then two years in Oloroso and PX sherry casks. 

Smartass Corner:
Lasanta is Gaelic for warmth and passion.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
All of the stills that were added later in expansions, are replicas of those that were built in 1887.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
