Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Astar

21 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.05 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.

  2. 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.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Forest of spruce, lemons and oranges, candies
    • Taste
      89 89
      Powerful and compact. Great touch of smoke, maybe coming from selected batches or simply from a perfect peat
    • Finish
      88 88
      Intense peated wood. Long.

  3. Dhugal MacArdry scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      86 86
      Pleasantly balanced. Butterscotch, honey.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Very nice creamy, pleasant mouthfeel. Fruits, vanilla.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium long, still vanilla and some coconut.

  6. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    good nose, but the taste is weaker noticeably, in general, the old version was noticeably tastier

  7. 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."

  8. Mannix65 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    is far from the class of its predecessor, young and unbalanced - rather disappointing
    • Nose
      Hot pepper, unripe peaches, vanilla, white chocolate
    • Taste
      stays alcoholic with water
    • Finish
      sharp and medium long

  10. dramspotter scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    First tasting is a blind tasting. Second was a tasting knowing what it was. Not being much of a Glenmorangie fan this one rather won me over. It is quite accomplished with its lacings of berry fruit in amongst the more citric fruity fare. Possibly one to use against those who will never normally touch Glenmorangie.
    • Nose
      (1) sweet, sherbet, dry coconut, lychee

      (2) slightly sappy, deep fruit salad notes like berries
    • Taste
      (1) soft, fruity

      (2) fruit but goes a little dry
    • Finish
      (1) not long enough (short->medium)

      (2) medium; touch of heartburn with the dryness, fresh fruit - lemons, some blackcurrant come back at the end with lip smacking
