Glenmorangie LaSanta 46%

The new sherry wood finish from Glenmorangie - now know as Extra Matured as alledgedly consumers didn't understand what sherry finish meant! This whisky has been finished in oloroso sherry casks for 2 years. The good news is that it is bottled at 46% ABV and is non-chilfiltred.

Have tried to stay away from the obvious christmas tasting notes that the Santa Claus name suggests.

Nose: Custard creams, but also covered in raisans, maybe some cherries and some chocolate, water makes it drier.

Taste: Thick, you can feel the raisans and creaminess come through, much bigger in the mouthfeel.

Finish: Still a little dry especially with water. But also more cream notes.

Comment: Not a bad dram benefits from being non chilfiltered helps but the dryness lets it down a wee bit. On a session I could drink a lot of this.

For alternative aka better reviews please visit Dr Whisky , Whiskyfun and Whisky Pages.

Score: 88/100
