Glenmorangie La Santa Single Malt 70 cl

92,60 VAT incl.

Glenmorangie La Santa Single Malt 70 cl is a whiskey produced by the Glenmorangie distillery in Scotland.

Why buy it?

For this line, Glenmorangie opts for the finish in casks that have previously housed Oloroso Spanish Sherry; even the name partly recalls this characteristic, as Lasanta in ancient Gaelic means “passion”, a reference to the temperament of the Spanish population but also to the intensity and delicacy of the sherry.

Description

History

The Glenmorangie distillery was founded in 1843, when a brewery was converted into a whiskey distillery by William Matheson, a Scottish farmer, and his wife Anne. The distillery is located in the north of Scotland, in the Highlands, in Tain, in Dornoch Bay; the area is particularly suited to the production of pure malt quality whisky. The distillery is famous for the shape of its “giraffe neck” stills which are also the highest in all of Scotland (about 5.14 meters) and which allow to obtain soft and silky whiskeys with Mediterranean notes. Even the aging rooms next to the distillery, the ancient stone warehouse, as well as being suggestive, allows refinements that elevate the characteristics of the distillates; currently 6 casks are used: Nectar d’Or (Sauternes casks), La Santa (Sherry casks), Finealta (American white oak and Sherry casks), Sonnalta PX (Pedro Ximenez casks), Artein (Super Tuscan casks ) and Quinta Ruban (port casks).

Production method

To produce a single malt whiskey, the barley is first subjected to a malting process, during which the complex sugars/starches present in the cereal are broken down into simple sugars, suitable for alcoholic fermentation by the hands of the yeasts. This procedure takes place in three phases: the maceration of the cereal in water to moisten it, the germination, during which the barley, which has been removed from the water, absorbs oxygen and begins to produce the radicle and to germinate; this procedure in particular will release the enzyme which is responsible for the transformation of starches into simple sugars. Subsequently this procedure is interrupted and the cereal is dried, which often takes place using peat-powered ovens, which will give the typical hints of smoked or brackish. Subsequently, the dried barley is ground and added again with hot water for further extraction of the must; this is what will be subsequently fermented and then distilled. The specification provides that for the wording single malt the whiskey must come from a single distillery and be aged for at least three years in oak barrels in Scotland.

Tasting notes

Amber yellow color with dark mahogany reflections. Intense and enveloping on the nose, with notes of white flowers, sherry and citrus fruits, balanced by vanilla spices and raisin notes. On the palate intense and delicate at the same time, it leaves room for notes of fruit and vanilla on the finish, also closed by a higher alcohol content. Silky and balanced.

Usage

Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation; particularly recommended for lovers of elegant and complex whiskeys. Also highly recommended for a gift!
