Rich aromas of butterscotch and honey are balanced with bright, floral top notes, the freshness of mint, freshly squeezed lemons and a delightful burst of coconut. Smooth and creamy on the palate, as sumptuously sweet crème-brûlée emerges with tropical fruits, apricots and vanilla custard, hazelnuts in soft buttery fudge, then clove, toasted oak and a hint of cooling menthol. Honey and almond mingle with coconut ice and aniseed for an enduring smoothness at the finish.
The second Astar release, the first was in 2008, it is a single malt entirely matured in bespoke oak casks hewn from hand-selected oak trees from the Ozark mountains of Missouri. 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.
