I have not noticed any batch variation in the Nadurra yet and I would still take it over the Astar even at the same price. They are both good but the Astar seems more like a beefed up 10yo, while the Nadurra has complexity and that fresh mint profile that sets it apart. Whichever you go for put the other on the list for later. :)

I have not had the Astar, so my input isn't particularly helpful. But, I have had a sample of the Nadurra and can say that I would not be disappointed in picking up a bottle. It was a very enjoyable dram and easy drinking for such a high ABV.

+1

Most of the Glenmo range seem to be similar with only the intensity separating them. At least to me. That is not to suggest it is bad, I like them. But Nadurra ahead of Astar/Lasanta/Nectar/Original for me.

I dont know which Nadurra batch you have over there. I have the 0109G sat in front of me. Quite nice and even with no water added ( 53.6% ) it goes down very easy, even too easy. The Astar i've just finished was far too minty ( for some reason ). Others dont mention the mint - maybe its just me but for that reason i'd go for the Nad.

Nadurra is miles ahead of the Astar.

I am a little baised though as I have a bottle of Nadurra in my "zombie Apocalypse" cabinet :D
