In 2008, during the distillery's quest for perfection, they 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.
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 this delicate Highland spirit.
Nose - Rich aromas of butterscotch and honey are balanced with bright, floral top notes, the freshness of mint, freshly squeezed lemons and a delightful burst of coconut.
Palate - Smooth and creamy on the palate, as sumptuously sweet crème-brûlée emerges with tropical fruits, apricots and vanilla custard, hazelnuts in soft buttery fudge, then clove, toasted oak and a hint of cooling menthol.
Finish - Honey and almond mingle with coconut ice and aniseed for an enduring smoothness at the finish.
