Whisky Reviews for Athrú 14-year-old LGDi

  1. mr_barleycorn scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Rather restrained nose despite about 30 minutes in the air. Now wonderful fruit notes slowly come out of my glass. Compared to Knocknarea much more discreet and filigree. There are ripe pears, pineapple, lychee and a few unripe bananas. Everything is surrounded by a sweet honey note. No stinging, no missing notes, on the contrary, I would even desire a bit more strength.

    Taste: Also on the tongue, the Keshcorran shows its best side. The nose is well represented and enhanced by some kitchen spices such as allspice and nutmeg. I also find organs and dried apricots. The power that was missing in my nose is just right on the tongue.

    Finish: Medium with some white pepper, dry oak and orange peel.

    This Irish single malt aged in American oak barrels for 11 years received a finish of 3 years in finest Tokaji barrels from one of the oldest wineries in Hungary. Keshcorran is the third bottling of the Athrú series.

    Like all Athrú Editions, the bottling is limited to 6,600 individually numbered bottles, manufactured and maintained by Billy Walker. The whisky tells the ancient Celtic story of King Cormac, the first great High King of Ireland.

    He's just having fun drinking. Beautifully balanced, no miss notes, not too strong and not too weak. A really nice malt for those who like softer malts.
    Overall, all -3-malts are really close to each other and have high quality.
    • Nose
      As expected very mild and incredibly fruity. Juicy, green fruits immediately stimulate the salivation, a beautiful and harmonious overall picture. Pears and apples, some vanilla and a minimal influence of oak. Sweet, but not superimposed.
    • Taste
      Again, the picture continues from the nose. Wonderfully mild and round, without feeling shallow. The 48% Vol. Are well chosen, that's all it takes. The influence of the sweet wine can not be denied, but here, too, the malt never really superimposed or slain. This is not one of those extremely sweet tooth decay malts. Instead, here are the green fruits from the nose, now with a more exotic touch. Pineapple and lychee!
    • Finish
      Surprisingly long and without fault and blame. The fruits slowly fade, now the oak takes over and adds a few spicier aromas without slipping in bitterness or dryness.

    Brandy me to Athru....
    Keshcorran is an amazing product, very complex.
    Nose is soft on dried and ripe sultanas, surely from the Tokaji finish.
    Mouth is straight, dry but not drying, soft spice and rancio and midaged oak barrel. Long finish, dry again but yet appealing....
