Distillery Background:

Founded in 1843, the Glenmorangie distillery stands proudly in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Nestled in the picturesque region of Tain, it draws inspiration from its surroundings to create whiskies of exceptional quality. With their towering copper stills, known as the tallest in Scotland, Glenmorangie produces whisky renowned for its smoothness, complexity, and finesse. The distillery’s commitment to utilising the finest casks for maturation ensures each expression embodies their signature style of elegance and depth.

Production Process:

Glenmorangie 12 Year Old – The Lasanta is carefully crafted using classic techniques and select ingredients. The journey begins with the finest Scottish barley, which is malted and mashed to release its natural sugars. Fermentation follows, transforming the malted barley into a flavourful wash. This wash is then distilled twice in Glenmorangie’s towering copper stills to create a pure, smooth spirit.

The spirit is aged for 12 years in American oak ex-bourbon casks before being transferred to Oloroso sherry casks for an additional period of maturation. This double-barrel aging process enhances the whisky’s depth, complexity, and imparts the distinctive sherry influence that sets The Lasanta apart.

Tasting Note:

Glenmorangie 12 Year Old – The Lasanta unveils a harmonious symphony of flavours.

On the nose, indulge in sweet notes of toffee, warm spices, and a gentle hint of citrus.

The palate is an exquisite blend of rich, creamy caramel, raisins, and dried fruits, complemented by layers of baking spices and dark chocolate.

The finish is long and satisfying, with a lingering sweetness and a subtle touch of oak.
