Excerpt: The whisky drinks with more heat than its abv would indicate, and water is more appropriate — and more helpful — here than on any of the above expressions. Even with a drop or two of water, it’s still a sherry-heavy beast. In a good way.
Excerpt: I think for the price it is really good whisky, and should not be overlooked. I would drink this both neat and in cocktails, as the price allows it and the flavors are bold enough for it. Without question, I would recommend giving The Lasanta 12 Year a try!

This is a Glenmorangie expression that takes the 10yr core expression and finishes it for 2 additional years in a sherry cask. It also gets a slight bump in proof.
Vanilla, toffee, light sulfur. Dates, figs, light syrupy Dole fruit syrup. Some stewed fruits.
Medium mouth feel. Sweet toffee, sweet stewed fruits. Nice and jammy. Light sulfur. That Glenmorangie bitterness is back, but not as bad as the 10yr. Lots of rich sherry, and a reasonably mouth feel despite the lower proof.
Short, not much going on here. Some fruits and toffee and then its gone.
Pretty good until you get to the entirely unremarkable finish. That said, it's not bad, and competes with something like Balvenie Doublewood head on fairly well.
