Glenmorangie Astar 2017 Scotch Whisky

Glenmorangie Astar 2017 Scotch Whisky

In 2008, on our ceaseless quest for perfection, we created 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. Today, in its triumphant return, we renew our homage to the power of wood. The 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. In 2017, The Astar’s triumphant, limited-edition return brings a newfound richness and complexity to this smooth, creamy and long celebrated single malt

Five thousand miles away on a secluded Missouri hillside, oak perfect for the maturation of this whisky reaches straight for the heavens. Here, in the relative shade of these north-facing slopes, we hand-select oak that has grown slowly enough to create a spongier and more porous wood. Perfect for welcoming the spirit and imparting the maximum amount of flavour. Aroma Rich in toffee and crème-brulee, drizzled with fresh menthol, warm cinnamon and deep aniseed spices. Mint humbugs and a sweet honey-lemon complexity follows. Taste Crème-brulee with a burst of mouth-watering pineapple, poached pears and apricots, smothered with vanilla custard. Finish The finish is long and smooth with a lingering mix of honey and almond, coconut ice and traces of aniseed. Colour Bright gold
