Whisky Reviews for Athrú 14-year-old LGDi

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.20 points

  1. mr_barleycorn scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: The first nose briefly reminds me of a basket full of ripe berries. However not the extremely sweet but rather slightly sour. There is also a pleasant wood note in the form of fresh sawdust. There is also some sweet chewing gum and pine needles. In the background there is a slight hint of sulfur in the form of a burnt match, but it becomes more and more intense over time.

    Taste: Very well integrated alcohol, a wonderful oily mouthfeel and again the slightly sourish forest fruits. A sip of kombucha, brown sugar and some coffee. At the second sip now sweeter but here comes the sulfur note something through, albeit very discreetly.

    Finish: Medium with sweet wood and overripe red fruits, baking cocoa and honey.

    The second expression from the Athru range, the Athru Knocknarea. A 14 Year Old single malt that was aged in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in the finest Oloroso Sherry casks for three years. Resulting in flavours of dried fruit, caramelised sugar and rich mince pies.

    The whisky smells nice enough in the first few minutes and then sulphury notes appear. The taste is very sulphury from the beginning: Rubberbands with mint and magoes.

    This is a rich, creamy, berries and caramel Irish pour. It does have a touch of sulphur, but it doesn’t take away from the experience

      Waxy almost plastic note, then berries and cream, dark caramel, ginger bread
    • Taste

      Unique, I get a grape type flavor first, it’s rich, bready, sweet and a touch of spice, big berry fruit flavors
    • Finish
      90 90
      The sweetness subsides, but the berries remain full forces, then the bready wariness comes back from the nose

  5. Spiritissime scored this whisky 89 points Newbie

    Stunning balance with a soft but yet expressive nose, fresh peach and wood scents. Great soft and full mouthfill. Fruit, light spice, aged bourbon cask, subbtle finish...
