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.
