Insider knowledge: Glenmorangie Astar whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Glenmorangie Astar whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Has a freshness, with creamy, sweet malt and white chocolate.
Palate: Really sweet and fruity, lychees and grapefruit, oak, barley, mandarin. Pineapple chunks in yoghurt.
Finish: Honey, smoothness, lovely creamy, tropical
Thick cream, fruit! Tingling, sweet, crisp. My new favourite dram, gave this to my better half (who doesn't like Scotch usually) and she loved it too.
SMOOTH as silk
A lovely, warming dram. Smooth and sweet.
A real and marvellous whisky . Delicious oak taste, long and oily. It' s the essence of what a whisky should be.
this is whisky i live i mile from the still never tasted better
Plenty of whiskies are described as "sweet", but this is in a different league of sweetness. It's sweeter than any whisky I've tried, scotch or bourbon. It's liqueur-sweet when drunk without water. It's an excellent accompaniment to desserts like sticky toffee pudding, which I find often make other drams seem bitter by comparison.
For this reason it wouldn't be an everyday dram for me, but it's an essential part of my collection.
