  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    One of the best whiskies in this series, only the Companta beats it.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, orange, apple, caramel, banana, sweet lime, almond, malt, honey and a whiff of tree resin. With water a bit of pastry.
    • Taste
      Orange, vanilla, apple, banana and caramel.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, banana, hazelnut, apple and caramel.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Yes, a nice bare strong whisky, a lot of vanilla, not super komex but very harmonious and in all respects aromatic and intense. Glenmorangie can do anything if you want.
    • Nose
      A real sweet vanilla bomb on the nose, just a little bit of fruit, the intense vanilla and marshmallow aroma is very fascinating.
    • Taste
      Nice start in the mouth, strong, sweet with tart and slightly fruity components.
    • Finish
      A little pepper, mint, cool, subtle fruit also less sweet than the nose. Some popcorn and a light vanilla aftertaste.

  4. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Glenmorangie loves Cask Strength! And the influence of the wood comes back beautifully.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Dark yellow fruit (think banana, ripe apple and ripe pear). Spices, sawdust.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Yellow fruit salad (banana, pear) with wood, nuts, spices and herbs. Tasty barrel!

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    After Tarlogan / Tayne / Cadboll the highlight of the evening, I was looking forward to it and was not disappointed - saulecker like 7-8 years ago. For 55 € that was a blast (even if that was already quite expensive then). I'm curious if the new Astar with its 80 € rankommt.
    • Nose
      mjam - vanilla, coconut, shortbread, honey, with beautiful tropical-fresh fruitiness - pineapple, banana, grapefruit, splashes of lemon, white grapes ... some white pepper and fresh sawdust ... water? -> No, do not hesitate, that's good!
    • Taste
      again scones, almond biscuits, vanilla crisps, everything well browned until lightly burnt, honey, overripe banana, or better baked banana, to bitter fruitiness (green apple peel, grapefruit, lime peel), fresh, slightly resinous wood, pepper, cinnamon ... leaves even more reindeuteln, but enough - delicious!
    • Finish
      long, dry, again burnt biscuits, sweet, not very bitter, some grapefruit, pepper ... and nice and warm

  7. Goethe scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The Glenmorangie Astar works very well although the finish is quite unidimensional.Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
    • Nose
      Fruits (dominant pears), honey, vanilla, citrus fruits, hints of pineapple and coconut, some banana, ginger.
    • Taste
      Sweet fruits, candy sugar, citrus, honey, burned pears, coconut, pepper, vanilla, ginger.
    • Finish
      Medium. Sweet oak and caramel.

  8. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Probably. the most disappointing of all the special Morangies ...
    • Nose
      Custard, some ginger and white wine, banana immature, some honeydew melon, grapefruit, but everything is watered down, some almonds. still
    • Taste
      Cotton candy, chamomile, lemon cream sweets, light white wine notes again, a bit of green apple and light oak
    • Finish
      Fairly dry and bitter, lemon peel, some pistachio nuts, toffee and not too long, here also the light oak, nothing special, short to medium long

  9. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

      And again excellent, now with a barrel fortress, a powerful, dense, rather restrained aroma, but then just shine - a beautiful balance, a bright character, perfectly inscribed in taste and finish the fortress - a mantle of the sun of a seaside city burning under the rays of the July sun.
    • Nose
      Citrus-mineral, dry, slightly dusty boulders on the hot sun, creamy notes, vanilla, a little carpentry and varnish shades.
    • Taste
      Sweet-oak, pepper, a lot of oak and dried apricots with raisins, powerful, tight.
    • Finish
      Continuation of taste, soft pepper, oak, sweet raisins, light citrus notes, dried, slightly burned apples, dense, saturated, long.
