Friday’s Pan: Glenmorangie LasantaMarch 21st, 2008
Glenmorangie Lasanta, 46%, $65
Finished in sherry casks. The sherry adds a nutty toffee sweetness, bramble, and other assorted red fruit and raisin, with the tell-tale Glenmorangie complexity tucked underneath. A bit heavy on the sherry, too, for such a subtle spirit. This is the only whisky from the new like of Glenmorangie that I’m not very excited about. A few of the others, especially the Original 10 year old, are very good.
