Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Astar

24 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.78 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

  3. 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.

  5. Luigisim scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice surprise from a NAS. I am quite sceptic about this type of bottling, but few editions are more than good. This is one of those few, best Glenmorangie millenial so far.

  10. Docmacwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Jim Murray has awarded 93 points to the Astar. "This is one of the maltiest of all their range, tough the lightness of touch means that any bitterness can be too easily detected."
