Glenmorangie Astar, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
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.
Nose: Honeycomb and caramel, with a hint of peaches in syrup underneath.
Palate: Touches of nutmeg and ginger bring the heat to the palate. Still rich in honey'd malt, joined by toasted pecan and hazelnut cream.
Finish: Salted fudge, vanilla ice cream (a hint of ice cream cone, too) and mint leaf.
