Glenmorangie Lasanta Sherry Cask Finish 12 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTasted February 23, 2020Nose: 6, 1-10 spicy, malt, hints of chocolate or cocoa. Interesting enough to get a 6. Color: rose gold Taste: 7, 1-10 medium modied, you pick up on different notes each sip but lacks that final punch to round it off. It builds in flavor from the front of the palate to the finish. Signature Speyside tastes, with some peppery or spicey additions. Not a lot, but enough to let you know it's been seasoned. Overall an enjoyable Scotch that I enjoy at this price point. Finish: 6, 1-10 Overall Score: 6 or 7, depends on the day on a 1-10. I enjoy this scotch. It's a scotch currently in my bar. Good one to share, and also enjoy slowly solo after a long day, or just cause :). I am excited to try other Glenmorangie drams.
