Glenmorangie Astar Review

This is a discontinued expression from Glenmorangie that was bottled at 57.1% ABV.

Nose: Quite nutty with lots of almonds. Bitter cocoa, honey, strong green apples.

Palate: Green apple up front followed by oak with cinnamon and herbal notes.

Finish: Becomes quite oaky but green apple remains helping to balance the slight bitterness of oak. A bit of vanilla toward the end.

Rating: 90/100 – Nice to try a Glenmorangie at a higher proof – makes you wonder what some of their other expressions would be like at a higher proof.

Value for the money: I believe this retailed originally between $60-$70 which is a great price. Secondary prices are probably $100+ which is pushing it for this expression.
