Glenmorangie Lasanta & Ardbeg An Oa Single Malt Scotch 2pk Gift Set
This gift set contains TWO award-winning single malt scotches: Glenmorangie Lasanta & Ardbeg An Oa. (Each bottle is 750ml.)
GLENMORANGIE LASANTA SINGLE MALT SCOTCH
Rich and full-bodied, Glenmorangie's signature expression is first aged in American oak ex-bourbon casks for smoothness. It is then finished in hand-selected Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. Sourced from Jerez in Spain, the sherry casks bring rich raisin intensity, toffee and spices to Glenmorangie's renowned smooth style, enjoyed and awarded across the world.
Warm spices mix with smooth chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb and caramel toffee.
Deliciously sweet sherry flavored sultanas, orange segments, walnuts and butterscotch combine to create complex warm spices.
Long and satisfying finish with spiced orange and chocolate covered hazelnuts.
ARDBEG AN OA SINGLE MALT SCOTCH
Ardbeg An Oa is singularly rounded, due in no small part to time spent in Ardbeg's newly established bespoke oak Gathering Vat where whiskies from several cask types - including; sweet Pedro Ximenez; spicy virgin charred oak; and intense ex-bourbon casks, amongst others - familiarize themselves with each other. The result is a dram with smoky power, mellowed by a delectable, smooth sweetness. Hallmark Ardbeg peat, dark chocolate and aniseed are wrapped in smooth, silky butterscotch, black pepper and clove, before rising to an intense crescendo of flavor. Non chill-filtered with a strength of 46.6% ABV.
Rounded and smoky - like burning Applewood - with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle and dates. A curious suggestion of juicy fruits, such as peach and banana. With a drop of water, reminders of Ardbeg’s classic fragrance – lime, pine resin, fennel, saddle soap and tar. A gentle waxiness, like fragrant candle wax, and hints of smoked herbs. An Oa gives a final subtle reminder of the sea with briny notes and seaweed but always accompanied with creaminess.
A smooth, creamy texture leads into a huge syrupy sweetness, flavors of milk chocolate, treacle toffee, aniseed, orange and smoky tea leaves. Gentle, sweet spices (nutmeg & cinnamon), some cigar smoke, and a very unusual flavor of grilled artichokes. Wood is always present in the spirit, gently nutty and reminiscent of a carpenter’s workshop. A long, sweet finish, with floral overtones, mint toffee and some gentle malty biscuit notes.
Lingering, seductive, gentle yet intense, with flavors of aniseed, hickory and distant subtle smoke.
