The Lasanta is again the standard 10 Year Old that got a finish in oloroso sherry for a period of 24 to 36 months, before being bottled at 46% ABV. I try it H2H with the Sonnalta PX, also finished on sherry, but Pedro Ximinez casks.
The nose is very soft and sweet with loads of dark fruits like plums, raisins and dades. Crème brûlée and honey, but also lighter fruit like peach on syrup. Somewhat dusty, but nicely creamy too. I must say, I like this.
Very creamy on the palate. Feisty on ginger and cinnamon. Immediately a sweet wave of honey and caramel follows, sugar and orange zest and hints of berries.
The playful finish on ginger and oranges ends with a touch of oak.
This bottle was a gift from my German friend Heiko (thanks, dude). At 45 EUR for a 1 litre bottle, this is a nice price/quality deal.
