Glenmorangie "Astar" Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1044995 94 points Whisky Advocate

 Glenmorangie Astar returns after a five-year absence. Astar is matured in custom toasted casks made from slow-growing trees on north-facing slopes in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. The barrels harbor bourbon for four years before heading to Glenmorangie. That level of provenance doesn’t come cheap, which is why the original Astar was discontinued in 2012, just four years after its acclaimed appearance. The exquisite Glenmorangie aromas and flavors—floral, with rose hips and orange blossom—are dialed up to new levels of intensity, while the voluptuous and sweet palate exudes harmony and balance. *Top 20 Whiskies of 2017* (GS)  (12/2017)

K&L Notes

This is the 2017 Edition newly released. From the wild mind of Dr Bill Lumsden, this whisky is aged in "designer casks." The slow-growth, air-dried American oak from the Ozarks is the finest available and Glenmorangie is the only Scotch producer willing to spend the extra money to procure fresh oak of this quality. The light char and extreme quality of the oak do not affect the whisky like other virgin oak casks, which typically over power the delicate malt. In this case these gorgeous casks add so much but never detract from the incredible spirit. A truly unique and exceptional realization of the whisky maker's vision.
