Glenmorangie has a flavor profile that's unique among any other single malts. Their 10 yr "original" is phenomenal, in flavor and price point. And now here is the Lasanta. A Glenmorangie Original 10 yr old finished in first-filled sherry casks for an extra 2 yrs. It expresses the depth, character, smoothness, and body that the Original lacks. Oranges, a slight herbal fragrance comes through from the Original. Dry, dusted semi-sweet chocolate cashews. toffee, nutmeg, Long finish with the nutmeg coming through again. Not as sweet as the Quinta Ruban and Nectar D'or. At 46% abv, non chilled-filtered, no caramel color added, and in the $40-$50 range, I think its a bargain. Excellent whisky.

Sounds like you were lucky to not get taste containing sulfur dioxide. This is one I've thought of coming back to, to get a second impression.

According to their Ambassador, Glenmorangie does not need to use suffer candles to disinfect their casks because their casks are received immediately after being seasoned in sherry from Portugal.

Yes, nobody should "suffer" from sulfur! :-) I did taste a batch containing it 1 year ago, but I did not mind it much, as I wrote. However, partly due to your review, I recently bought a new bottle, and I can confirm that it has no SO2. I'll post my re-review, probably in a couple months.
