I was browsing the shop the other day with the intent of getting a bottle of the very enjoyable Glenfarclas 12. The farclas was $71 and I saw this Lasanta for $55 so I made a financial decision and picked this one up instead. Plus this is a new one for me. Bottle has been opened about a week and is 90% full.
Nose: Sweet red wine and plums. Pretty typical sherried whisky. Brown sugar cake. Gingerbread. Pretty sweet. Rasberries. Very enjoyable fruity nose as is the case with most sherried whisky.
Palate: Very clean, typical sherried flavors. Plums definitely stand out the most. There is a slight bitterness as well but it is useful to balance out some of the sweet plum juice.
Finish: Fairly short. Plum juice, vanilla and dark cherries remain to finish things off.
Overall: Pretty standard, clean sherried whisky. No complaints, nothing spectacular but it is good. Looking forward to enjoying this bottle and seeing how it evolves with time.
