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.

Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
