Show rating data charts
Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: More aromatic that The Original. Scents of oatmeal raisin cookies and bits of orange and apples.
Body: medium bodied but with a watery feel in the mouth.
Palate: muddled. Delivers on the promise of orange and raisins, but the sweetness of the sherry influence argues with the bitterness of the oak, making for a somewhat forgettable flavor.
Finish: a longer, smokier finish than The Original. A bit of pepper up front, with a surprising finale of chocolate and caramel.
Both the nose and the finish of the Lasanta are much more complex and satisfying than The Original, but the palate is indistinct and unbalanced. On the whole, The Original offers a slightly more pleasing experience.
