Your Price: $49.95
Glenmorangie The Lasanta 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Sherry Cask Finish This is the 12 year old, Sherry cask finished expression from Glenmorangie, dubbed The Lasanta. It first matures in bourbon casks before being moved over to Oloroso and Pedro Ximnez Sherry casks for a finishing period. Plenty rich and creamy with dark chocolate, dried fruit and fresh honey. In 1738, a brewery was built upon Morangie Farm in the Highlands region of Scotland. A century later, William Matheson acquired the farm and equipped the Morangie brewery with two stills that he purchased second-hand, and renamed the brewery-converted-distillery Glenmorangie. Glenmorangie whiskies are made using malted barley, which is mashed and fermented with water sourced from the Tarlogie Spring. The water produced from the spring, which spends nearly a century underground being filtered through layers of limestone before it is extracted, is unusually rich in minerals. In the 1980s, when development in the area threatened the spring's water quality, Glenmorangie purchased 600 acres of land around the spring in order to ensure a consistent and everlasting supply.

In the 1980s, when development in the area threatened the spring's water quality, Glenmorangie purchased 600 acres of land around the spring in order to ensure a consistent and everlasting supply. After the barley has been fermented, the wash is twice distilled through Glenmorangie's copper-pot stills by a team of 16 distillers known as the Sixteen Men of Tain. Glenmorangie's stills are equipped with relatively small boiler pots, which increases the exposure of the whisky to the copper, resulting in a more pure flavor. In addition, the stills are nearly seventeen feet tall ” the tallest of any distillery in Scotland ” and as a result, produce a lighter, more refined whisky.
