The limited-edition return of Glenmorangie Astar, bottled in 2017. Like the 2008 original, this has been aged in oak casks from Missouri, and has notes of almond, coconut and lots of spice.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Bright gold

    Aroma:  Rich, sweet and fruity with fresh bright floral top notes. At full strength, the aroma is rich in butterscotch and honey, drizzled with fresh mint and a burst of coconut. The nose is full of citrus: freshly squeezed lemons fill the nose. With water, the sweetness intensifies. White sugar, lemon meringue, then creamy and luscious sweet fruits: pineapple, pears and peaches in vanilla ice-cream. 

    Taste: The mouth-feel is deliciously smooth, rich and creamy, full of sumptuous sweet and fruity flavours.  The taste is exceptionally well-rounded and balanced.  Initially crème-brulée emerges with more tropical and stone fruits.  Apricots smothered with vanilla custard.  Hazelnuts in soft buttery fudge mix with some clove spiciness and toasted oak.  Shortly after, the palate is gently cleansed by a hint of cooling mint and fresh menthol.   

    Finish: Long and smooth with a lingering mix of honey and almond, coconut ice and traces of aniseed.

    Seit langem wieder ein Whisky von Glenmorengie der die hohen Anschaffungskosten wert ist. Unter leichter Zugabe von Wasser , entfaltet er sein volles Aroma, wobei eine angenehmer s??er, fruchtiger Geschmack auf der Zunge im Vordergrund stehen. Sehr empfehlenswert.

    This was just stunning. The last Glenmorangie that I purchased was the 18 yr old - not much left and, when I received your promotional e-mail advertising the 'Astar' - it was a natural choice - yoyr description very accurate. My younger son was visitig about the time that I took delivery, and was very impressed. I don't like peaty whiskies and Glenmorangie sjits my palette very well
