Glenmorangie // Highlands, Scotland
"Lasanta" is Gaelic for "warmth and passion”. It is one of the core expressions for The Glenmorangie and one of their cask finish releases. This single malt spends its first 10 years in American oak ex-bourbon barrels. After that initial maturation, it finishes its aging in former oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry butts.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"There is a rich raisin ice cream thing happening here, but instead of rum, it is whisky. The proof of the whisky allows for the splendid spices to emerge such as nutmeg and cinnamon and finishes up with more dried fruits and hazelnut."
