Glenmorangie Lasanta

January 12, 2012

The name 'Lasanta' is taken from the Gaelic for passion and warmth, both perfect adjectives for this bottling of Glenmorangie with its depth and aromas of warm spice. After an initial maturation period in old bourbon casks the whisky is transferred for a two year period of 'extra-maturation'  in Oloroso sherry butts resulting in beautifully integrated sweet sherry characteristics. The nose has cinnamon spice, honeycomb and caramel and the sherry-like raisin flavours are overlaid with hints of smooth chocolate. The palate is complex with butterscotch, orange and walnuts all detectable amidst the spice and dried fruit. A rich and delicious Malt.

The Glenmorangie Lasanta will be available to taste at our forthcoming Burns' Night Whisky Tasting on 25th January. Tickets £15 available from 0121 236 9269.

It started early on a Saturday in June. I’m minded to say that it disturbed my lie-in but it was way earlier than that that my phone first pinged to announce the arrival of a new website order. (I wonder if Jeff Bezos has the same app on his phone?). Ignored it, rolled over and 5 minutes later it went again. And again. And etc, etc. Finally, before switching the thing off, curiosity got the better of me and I opened up the online shop to find a stream of orders for a wine that I fell in love with 2 years ago but that we had failed to make much headway with – Coteaux du Giennois, Terre de Silex from Clement & Florian Berthier,

Although the world has been turned upside down of late, Covid-19 hasn’t interrupted our Captain Kirk approach to wine-buying – seeking out new wines, new spirits and beers, boldly drinking what no man has drunk before. Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration
