The Glenmorangie Astar was initially released back in 2008, but was discontinued. Thankfully they have decided to bring back a new release in 2017. The Astar is a cask strength Glenmorangie and means "journey" in Gaelic after the journey they have taken to source only the finest oak from the Missouri Ozarks.
The nose is rich, sweet and fruity. With fresh bright floral top notes. The aroma is full of butterscotch and honey with a little zest.
The palate brings a deliciously smooth mouthfeel, full of sweet fruity flavours. There is a slight nuttiness that accompanies and a hint of spice.
A very long finish, mostly honey with a hint of nut.
