This is the 12 year old, Sherry cask finished expression from Glenmorangie, dubbed The Lasanta. 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.
Nose: Plum and baking spice supported by milk chocolate raisin, caramel and toasty oak.
Palate: A dash of tart raspberry coulis leads into a generous helping of sherried dried fruit, with orange marmalade, toasted nuts and berry jam. Sweeter notes of brown sugar and cereal notes appear.
Finish: Silky and long, with oily orange peel, cinnamon and hazelnut praline, rounded off by bitter dark chocolate.
