The Glenmorangie Astar bottling is the second incarnation of the much loved Artisan cask bottling from several years ago and bottled at a huge 57.1% abv. The name Astar means journey in Gaelic, and to create this whisky the materials had to travel 5000 miles to the Glenmorangie distillery. The colour of the whisky is a bright gold with a nose of rich toffee and creme-brulee with warm autumnal spices.
On the palate theres plenty of richness reminscent of creamy cream brulee with hints of roasted caramilised pineapple. The finish is smooth and long with a lingering flavour of honey and almonds with a mention summer fruits. A truly Mouth watering whisky, which will keep giving you more!
