Glemorangie Lasanta Bottling Note

This is the 12 year old, Sherry cask finished expression from Glenmorangie, the Lasanta, bottled at a slightly lower ABV of 43% (originally it was bottled at 46%). It first matures in bourbon casks before being moved over to Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks for a finishing period. Plenty rich and creamy with dark chocolate, dried fruit and fresh honey.

Glenmorangie Lasanta 12 Year Old Reviews

Saddly all or no marzipan with a sticky price!

Start of the bottle needed time to breath. but, once I got to the middle of the bottle, I did get 2 lovely drams full of fruitieness and tuns of marzipan flavours which you'd expect. Then towards end of the bottle I didn't get any marzipan flavours. Also if I swirled around for to long in the mouth then I got a stick dry taste as if I'd sucked a boiled sweet for to long.
So in a nutshell, I'd rather pay the few pounds more for the Nectar D'or which I think is a nicer dram!

Good if the price is right.

Only thing to grumble about here us the price. Possibly the lowered percentage but if you've not had the 46 you'll never know. Not much on the nose initially but let it breathe and you'll find its a truely good dram. The sherry finish is a nice way to round out an already fine whisky. If you see it on sale add it to your collection, well worth a visit.

Sherry

Drinkable sherry whiskey .. find myself using it for cocktails more than a dram or on the rocks. I think the Quinta or 10 year is a better buy

This one is growing on me

Bought this a few months ago and wasn't impressed with my first taste. Tried it again today, and the bottle is improving. Big fan of the Original, and I think this is a nice complement to the 10 year. Finish isn't as long as I might like, probably related to the chill filtering, but you can't have everything I suppose.

Great distillation character, decent aging

Good Sherry aroma, but would have been nicer if aged in Sherry casks a little longer. Maybe it was just my bottle but there are heavy notes of tannin and decayed fruit. Addition of water brings out more Sherry sweetness, and possibly some smoke from the charred bourbon barrels.

Good...but not great

Good scotch with some great flavor but I agree with the 3.5 rating...there’s something about it that puts it into “good but not great” territory. Maybe it’s that extra little bit of burn on the end of it, or a bit of an “over-flavoring” taste. But it’s a good bottle to have on hand. Also, a few drops of water doesn’t hurt.

maybe it better than 3. 5 , but I need to taste some other scotch finished for the last 2 year in a sherry cask try it.

very smooth , a very clean long lasting finish , let your friends taste it, then you will have a better friend for a long , long time.

Lovely change of pace I believe you say in Scotland.

I bought this today in the US after enjoying the miniature packed with the Pioneer Gift Set. I like the Sherry offset. I have nothing to compare with this so for me this is a pleasant diversion from traditional 10 year old Glen I buy. Sorry to see it is discontinued.

Both the miniature and the 70cl are 43% for what it's worth.

Wow

I bought a bottle of this for the father in law for Xmas. I ordered a 3cl sample for myself. Hes always been a fan of Glenmorangie whereas I've only tried a few of theirs. This is lovely stuff. As soon as he opens it on Boxing Day Ill get the glasses from the cupboard for him.
Its smooth, fudgey, toffee, chocolatey, creamy but I do love the sweeter sherry cask finishes.

Wish I'd found this sooner

OMG. Fantastic VFM.

I love sherried whiskies (BenRiach PX, GlenDronach, Dailuaine F&F, Knockando slow matured, Bunnahabhain 18 etc). I didn't expect so much reward from a MOTR producer's 12 yo. OK, I have the Nectar D'Or, the Quinta Ruban and the 18 Extremely Rare but I had been put off by lacklustre reviews off the Lasanta.

This is smooooooth, rich, chocolatey, a little wintry spicy, toffee, clotted cream fudge, just absobloodylutely excellent. I'm buying a crate!!!!!!!

30th August 2016

Excellent

Not as good as their Quinta Ruban, but still, very enjoyable

Worth the money

The Lasanta is definitely worth the money. Prices vary, but I can usually find it for $45-50 (USD). Light and fruity on the nose, with a hint of caramel and chocolate, but the initial hit on the palate of spice followed by mild peat, smoke and nutty undertones. The finish has a linger of the spice and peat, and tossing it over the rocks or with a couple drops of water expands the florals in the body.

Not quite on the level of my favorite Islays, but a very good Highland for the price point. Would definitely buy again.

magnificent dram

This is a lovely wee dram at a cracking price

Glenmorangie Lasanta

I believe this is one of the best. I am not as well versed in scotch whisky as my husband, but I do know what I like to drink and this is definitely one of the scotch whisky that I would recommend to anyone who drinks single malt scotch. Thanks for having it available.

Tasty!

It's a glenmorangie with some sherry! What's not to love?
It provides a decent step up from the original by giving it some more stewed fruit notes and oaky influence, taking away some of the more bourbon notes that are so prevalent in the original.

8th May 2016

Why do you have to chill filter your whisky -.-

the 46% is better~

20th April 2016

not big taste

I was quite disappointed because the taste is not long and it doesnt really gives a fruity taste on mouth.
Not big aroma , it doesnt really smell something , has almost same smell like the red label of J.walker.

I tasted this after the glenfiddich rich oak which really has an aroma and a sherry taste, maybe that's why.
I will give it a new try some other day

9th January 2016

Favorite

Of the various Glenmorangies I've tried, this is my favorite so far. Smooth, nice flavors.

23rd October 2015

please go up to 46!

I really like this lasanta but only in the 46,i was given a 43 bottle and it just wasn`t the same,you just can`t beat the kick of the 46.
why they went down in this I don`t know .a real shame.

28th June 2015

price

recognize price will vary around the world. in NJ USA I get this for $47 USD. It is a very good value and has excellent sherry notes. Competes very well with any scotch at that price.

8th June 2015

slightly overpriced

Should be priced in the low 50s range. Good taste but not a rich sherry flavor. For a 12yr its pretty good

23rd May 2015

I love Glemorangie

But...literally my body chemistry did not mix well with bottle. It was a shame. A few of my friends were raving about it but when I drank it I really didn't feel great afterwards...weird.

Maybe I'll give it another try...but in general Glemorangie is a fav of mine.

New to Scotch

I don't know much about scotch, but I bought a few high priced scotches that were basically a waste of my money. Then I saw a YouTube video were the was a scotch/ whiskey expert. He gave this particular one a good recommendation, so I purchased my first bottle of Glenmorangie. I will drink this again and keep a bottle in my house. It was smooth and had some spice to it. For a beginner I would recommend this one.

19th April 2015

Tastes watered down

I liked the 46%. This one tastes watered down.

27th March 2015

My favorite non peated scotch

This is a scotch you must discover. Im a fan of peated/smokey scotch and I have to say that I always have a bottle of this one at home. Starts slowly and smoothly, continue with wood and finish with a small kick of fruit coming from the Sherry cask. Extremely well balanced. I dare you to take only one!

JE

Lacks delicate or creamy. The extra abc come through. You can do a lot better for the price

18th February 2015

doc

Vanilla on nose. Hint of honey on palate with smooth finish . Complex for great price . Better than macallan 15. One of best values out there

13th January 2015

nice but,

I like this one but the 46 vol for me hits the button for me would like to see this in an 50 vol bottle that would be a fantasti hit of flavours,why not?
