Review by Glenmorangie

« This review is also available in Dutch »
Colour

Light russet

Nose

Like the most delicious dessert menu imaginable, Lasanta taunts the senses with chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and smooth caramel toffee. Citrus notes clear the way for the crispy burnt sugar and melting softness of crème brulee to be replaced by the rich aroma of rum and raisin ice cream

The addition of water to Lasanta exposes another menu of juicy dates and caramelised apricots whose sweetness is offset with hazelnut and walnut oil. Notes of dessert sherry wine emerge, mixed with spice and linseed oil to give a sense of cosiness and age-old comfort.

Palate

The full, sweet flavour typical of Spanish sherry with sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butter toffee. The bite of hazelnut tasted through a chocolate coating, spice notes and hints of leather add the overwhelming sense of richness.

Finish

Satisfyingly long with spiced orange and chocolate enrobed hazelnuts.

Note

Non chill-filtered
