    Never been able to catch the chocolate or nuttiness in most drams I've had, however this has a very pleasing and inviting aroma to the nose and the tastes are to me of toffee and hunny with a spice that lasts all the way through the surprisingly enjoyable finish.

    Normally I drink various types of Talisker when I want a muscular dram or one of the delicious manifestations of Nikka when I want something more exotic. However I thought I'd give this a go because it is well and is a World Whisky award winner. The nose was lovely and it tastes okay but it appears to have a limited finish and dissolves from the taste buds even more quickly than the experience of drinking this whisky disappears from the memory. Sorry but I found this underwhelming.

    Excellent single malt when you need a break from smokey ones. My best from Glenmorangie.

    Fantastic whiskey. Just bought it on sale and it's great. A couple drops of water defiantly brings the goodness out early. You can drink this neat if you give it 15 minutes

    Really fine sherry cask whisky. Reminds me of Macallan of old. Toffee, raisin, spice but very polished and can take a little water to bring out the complexity on the finish. My current go-to for this style.

    This is my favorite Glenmorangie for under $100 also; Quinta Ruban is as nice, perhaps for some palates even finer, but where it losses imho is the color. Lasanta is more traditional and overall more satisfying for me.

    Aaah Glenmorangie, you have won my heart. Decadent, sweet burnt sugars, butterscotch, spice, oak, orange, faint peat. It's an amazing whiskey but it's lacking compared to its brother Quinta Ruban.

    "Nose" (undiluted) Limes, oranges, raspberries, fog hanging over a bay, and brine of the sea in the air. "Palate" (undiluted) Powerful arrival of sweet sherry! Huge! Big and spicy, raisins, plums, prunes and oak somewhere underneath. A tad fiery upon first opening bottle. Let a week pass and what was once hot becomes great warmth. "Finish" (undiluted) Tingling oak, drying with smoke and somewhat winey.

    The best I've tasted from Glenmorangie so far. Awaiting Quinta Ruban as well. But no ice added, 4 heaven sake!!!

    Simply wonderful. Lots of bang for the buck. Lasanta is one of the best Whiskies you can buy for under $100.

    Needs no more than a rock or 2 of ice, I've been searching for another single malt finished in sherry casks and not one has come anywhere near this, truly a drink of the gods.

    Yay. It's fabulous. Nose: drying paint (oil-based) with a hint of spruce charcoal and smoked Loch Ness monster jerky. Mouth feel: warm, plush and blanketing. Palate: honey-tinged bird droppings, burnt metal and smoked polyester. Finish: fired butterscotch, warm vanilla bean... long; and sherry! I do it every time for the Finish! Awesome. This is on my short list. Will definitely buy again.

    Lovely flavor with traces of warm honey, nuts and fruits.

    Bought in duty free in US. 1 litre for $60. I thought the price alone for a 12yo whiskey was sufficient grounds to buy. Looked like the most interesting scotch in the shop at the time. I am no scotch connoisseur but agree that this gets better on the palate when opened up by the teasing of water: in my case Irish water ice cubes. May not be to everyone''s preferred taste but cannot see it disappointing. Reckon worth enjoying during a cold Christmas winter.

    This is the best i have tried from Glenmorangie. Wonderful nose , smooth but with a kick. You will finish the bottle before you try another.

  • Beardy 7 June 2014

    The best of the four 12yr old expressions. It's the woody/nutty finish that does it for me which is delicious. Will definitely buy again.

    There are many reviews here with tasting notes so I'll avoid that and just state that this is very good stuff, but it has lost a bit on me over the weeks. Still, a real winter warmer. Very good!

  • Rob Warren 22 December 2012

    Very smooth and easy on the palate, especially with a drop of water. Wonderful stuff!

  • David Vivas 24 November 2012

    This one tastes so different to the Original Glenmorangie. it has a deeper aroma like dark chocolate, nutmeg, caramel and cinnamon. In the palate you can taste the sherry and a little bit of smokey citrus flavour. I would say that it is a little bit complex and even harsh un-diluted. I would recommend to have it with a splash of water as it will unlock its full flavours and aroma, improving its smoothness.
