Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Astar

28 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.95 points

  1. Goethe scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Compared to the previous Glenmorangie Astar this one works on the nose almost like the old one. On the palate you got also almost the same impressions but this never version is more dry and spicy although we got a lower ABV here. The new versions seems to be a bit younger and edgy.Concerning price/performance ratio: 6/10
    • 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, spicy and dry.
    • Finish
      Short to medium. Dry with sweet oak and caramel.

  7. valery77 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Pleasant, soft. Vanilla, malt motifs, wood dust, cream fudge, fruit lollipops, broken branch, green grass, exotic fruits, Duchess lemonade, sweet pastries, light perfumery. 23
    • Taste
      Moderate, moderately sweet. Black pepper and other spices, milk toffee, tropical fruits, bitter bitterness, wood tannins. 22
    • Finish
      Rather, short, smoothly fading, wood tannins dominate, with a touch of menthol added at the end. 20
      Tasty, very strong representative of ex-bourbon exposure, although the finish line was a bit disappointing. Balance 21

  9. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Good. A drop of water helps - I recommend.
    Nose: pleasant, bourbon, sweet, monponier ...
    Taste: pleasant, light, despite the degree, summer drink
    Aftertaste: average duration, without bright taste sensations.
