Glenmorangie Lasanta Reviews
Producer's Tasting Notes
Aroma: Like the most delicious dessert menu imaginable, Lasanta taunts the senses with chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and smooth caramel toffee. Citrus notes clear the way for the crispy burnt sugar and melting softness of crème brulee to be replaced by the rich aroma of rum and raisin ice cream
The addition of water to Lasanta exposes another menu of juicy dates and caramelised apricots whose sweetness is offset with hazelnut and walnut oil. Notes of dessert sherry wine emerge, mixed with spice and linseed oil to give a sense of cosiness and age-old comfort
Taste: The full, sweet flavour typical of Spanish sherry with sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butter toffee. The bite of hazelnut tasted through a chocolate coating, spice notes and hints of leather add the overwhelming sense of richness
Finish: Satisfyingly long with spiced orange and chocolate enrobed hazelnuts

When I turned 30, my palate seemed to completely transform. Up until then, I could not stand or understand whiskey. When I came back to the well I realized I actually enjoyed whiskey. After a couple of months, and many a Scotch bottles, La Santa is my go to bottle. I still don't fully understand Scotch and cannot put my finger on notes or aromas, but dammit, I love this Scotch.
Introduced Lasanta to group of sworn blended-Scotch drinkers,the acceptance was overwhelming - it's our favourite now!!
Smooth as soft, deep velvet trickling down your excited throat! A Devine Experience!
SIMPLY PUT....MY FAVOURITE...I JUST LOVE IT.
Fantastic what a brilliant malt to have at Christmas :)
Never found the Lasanta to have any sulfur notes to it at all. And I've bought it at least 4 times. Perhaps there was a bad batch going around but that is not normal for this whisky.
Found it chemical in nature too. A bit like tar or sulphur as said before. Certainly not one of my favourites. The standard morangie is superior.
I just had this for the first time and it was lovely stuff indeed. Contrary to other reports I did not find any sulpher or other off-notes. Just rich, sweet sherry and salty malt all around. From the aroma to the finish it really hit the spot. I rate it higher than Original and Quinta Ruban, though both of those are nice as well.
A splendid whiskey. One of my favourites. Was introduced to it at a dinner party and it is a great tasting whiskey. Over ice, nothing fancy!
Put a good pour in the freezer for a couple of hours. Then sip away with one small clear ice cube. A wonderful drink. DMBDavid B
