Glenmorangie Astar 2017 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Description

#2 on Whiskey Advocate's Top 20 Whiskies of 2017!

"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. —Gavin Smith"

Description by Glenmorangie: "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"
