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 vapours 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.

Spicy and sweet - raisins and sherry

Will,
This is a true 10, sweet, with a hint of oak and vanilla. Just the right amount of heat for a smooth finish.

Bit harsher then other Glenmorangie blends

Shana,
Enjoy its bold character, but it comes on strong from start to finish. I personally enjoy my single malt scotches that take the palette on a flavor journey - a subtle unfolding of flavor spirals on the palette. This 12-year single malt from the Highlands was satisfying - it just isn't my personal preference. My favorite scotch is any scotch that creates intrigue from the start - bold in nose, deftly nuanced in flavor spirals that are genuinely detectable and each working in harmony to reveal its origins, and a long strong finish.

Benjamin,
I think these are usually priced the same as the Quinta Ruban, but found that this was not as enjoyable as the other. A bit more harsh going down.

The perfect dram after a long, hard day and at the end of a good meal. Lovely balance of flavors and a glorious, rich mouth mouth-feel. I love introducing friends to this beauty-especially those who think all "scotch" is smoky, peaty and briny. This dram quickly dispels that misconception!

Have had bad experiences with this one. Becomes almost stale after a while. Better off getting did ditch solera. If have the money get glendronach 15.

Zachary,
One of my go-to bottles. Creamy, rich & sweet without loosing complexity or becoming cloying. All of the traditional Glenmorangie character & added dimensions of top notch extra maturation. There's always at least one bottle in my cupboard.
