Wine Enthusiast 93 points - Aged in Bourbon casks for 10 years, then "extra maturedï¿½ for two years in Oloroso Sherry casks. The result is luxe and rich, a fine after-dinner sipper. Allow a little time for the aroma to emerge, and a splash of water for maximum flavor. The reward is a thick caramel aroma and flavor, with mouthwatering spicy notes of clove, cassia bark and a hint of orange peel. - K.N..December/2011
Ultimate Spirits Challenge 90 points - Exotic flavors of Curacao orange peel, butter creme, and island flowers persist on the effusive nose. The palate is lush and fills the mouth with the barrelâs striking influence. Classic scotch flavors of heather and honey gentle echo on the long, satisfying finish..March/2017
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Briny and toasty on the nose with suggestions of maple, cinnamon and fresh fig shining through. Decidedly semisweet with salted caramel, baked pear and campfire smoke coalescing into a classic, sherry-like finish. Fantastic..April/2016
Lasanta is Gaelic for warmth and passion, a reminder not just of the Spanish provenance of these Oloroso sherry butts, but also a reflection of this expressions lusciously soft texture and deep, enticingly sweet aroma.Non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouthfeel.
Elegant but full bodied this whisky has spent ten years maturing in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being extra-matured for a further two years in Oloroso Sherry casks from Jerez in Spain.
Aroma: Warm spices mix with smooth chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and caramel toffee. Taste: Deliciously sweet sherry flavoured sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butterscotch combine to create complex warm spices. Finish: Long and satisfying finish with spiced orange and chocolate covered hazelnuts.
