The return of Glenmorangie Astar (Scots Gaelic for “journey”) a single malt entirely matured in bespoke oak casks, which were designed to deliver perfection in the final spirit.The 2017 Astar’s extraordinary casks are hewn from hand-selected slow-grown oak trees from the Ozark mountains of Missouri, and meticulously crafted to exacting specifications, to ensure they impart their maximum flavour to our delicate Highland spirit. Although the silken depths of its first release delighted connoisseurs, such casks are so rare that it has taken years to orchestrate its renaissance.
Nose: Beeswax, heather honey, coconut fudge, white chocolate, praline, butterscotch, apricot glaze on baked pastries, vanilla sponge cake.
Palate:Toasted coconut, creme brulee, spicy vanilla fudge, candied tropical fruit, quite a sappy oak body with clove, orange oil and hazelnut puree.
Finish: Honey, almond, coconut, dry vanillin oak, apricot jam, egg custard, toasted brioche and late clove spice.
The Astar’s triumphant, limited-edition return brings a newfound richness and complexity to this smooth, creamy and long celebrated single malt.
