Top reviews for Glenmorangie Astar:

— Wow! Love this. Have been waiting a few years to grab a bottle of this. Admit my biases: Glenmorangie is my favorite Scotch brand, I was born in the Ozarks where the particular Ozark Oak for the barrels was grown & harvested, and I grew up in TN 25 mi north of Jack Daniels Distillery (where the barrels were sent to hold TN Whiskey for 4 yrs to soak into the wood for taste before being sent to Scotland to mature the Scotch). But still, wow! It is smooth, has a unique oakiness to it, and a tinge of TN whiskey! Superb sipping whiskey!

— This year's batch is even better than the one from 2012. Smooth for a boozy scotch (over 100 proof), strong vanilla, sweet and spicy. My favorite scotch.

— It is just about perfect!!

This scotch benefits from additional proof points, creating a burst of flavor from the initial sip. Great fruit notes. Delicious!

Smooth for 52.5%. Sweet honey and vanilla at first. Then a spicy finish.

This is my favorite glenmorangie offering so far, nice first taste with a small bite followed by honey and spice finish! added just a splash of water and it really brought out the sweetness, I will be getting another bottle!

Nice but very heavy on the oak. Was looking for a bit more complexity.

Lorenzo,
I can see why this is the 2017 #2 scotch of the year. At 105 + proof, it's amazingly smooth. Hints of sweetness, spice, and vanilla. Enjoy neat or with a little water. Cheers!!

Excellent strong rich finish, not one to be rushed or trifled with, definitely needs a drop of water ( which normally I would shun) to bring the flavour up
