GLENMORANGIE Astar Edition 2017 Of 52,5%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 54053

Quantity limited to 3 bottle(s) by client.

In 2008, Glenmorangie created Astar, meaning “journey” in Gaelic, a single malt entirely matured in oak casks, which were designed to deliver perfection in the final spirit. renewing its homage to the power of wood, the Astar's extraordinary casks are hewn from hand-selected slow-grown oak trees from the Ozark mountains of Missouri, and meticulously crafted to exacting specifications, to ensure they impart their maximum flavour to delicate Highland spirit. Although the silken depths of its first release delighted connoisseurs, such casks are so rare that it has taken years to orchestrate its renaissance. In 2017, The Astar’s triumphant, limited-edition return brings a newfound richness and complexity to this smooth, creamy and long celebrated single malt.

Tasting note

  • Nose : une nez gourmand, à la fois doux et fruité, avec des notes de tête fraîches et florales. Des arômes de caramel, de miel, contrasté de menthe fraîche et d’une touche de noix de coco. On retrouve des notes de citron fraîchement pressé. Une goutte d’eau intensifie sa douceur : du sucre blanc, de la meringue puis des fruits juteux (ananas, poire, pêche, et de la glace à la vanille).
  • Palate : une texture souple, riche et crémeuse, emplie d’une somptueuse douceur et de saveurs fruitées. Un palais exceptionnellement rond et équilibré. Des arômes de crème brûlée, de fruits tropicaux, de poires. Des abricots dans la crème anglaise, des noix beurrées combinés à de subtiles notes épicées, puis de la menthe fraîche.
  • Overall : longue et souple, où persistent le miel, les amandes, la glace à la noix de coco et une touche d’anis.

The brand

The Glenmorangie distillery has, since 1843, produced its famous single malt in the north of the Highlands. It owns the tallest stills in Scotland, a legacy of the gin stills installed when it first began. A pioneer of maturation in ex-bourbon casks in the 1960s, Glenmorangie also began experimenting with different finishes very early on thanks to the help and great skill of the famous nose, Dr Bill Lumsden. Its series of finishes aim to marry the finesse of this single malt with the flavours and tannins of different wines during a second maturation that lasts around two years. Find out more

Bon petit whisky fruité sans prétention mais tient son rang. Je recommande pour les amateurs de ce style de whisky.

Un superbe whisky pour ceux qui aiment une note de bourbon dans un Scotch puissant et corpulent
