Sherried whiskies can be an acquired taste I suppose, and at times I think it can be limited to the less wider-known malts. However Glenmorangie have the Lasanta, which is easily obtainable at a pretty decent price too.
As you would expect with a sherry-cask whisky, there is a deepness to the colour, with red & orange there. I almost likened it to roast carrots! No carrots on the nose though, there was oranges, berries, and rhubarb in there as well, bringing to my mind the old rhubarb and custard boiled sweets!
I found it to be a very warm whisky, a little oily but the fruits were there just as in the nose, but seemingly with more oomph, bit more power behind them. And I think that’s hat helped the fruity flavours linger long into the finish, which seemed to leave a film over the tongue.
You know those whiskies you drink on a cold night to warm the cockles of your heart? Yeah well this is one of those. Enjoyable and with just enough power to it!
