Athru 14 YO Knocknarea Irish Whiskey 48% 700 Ml
Another release of fantastic Irish single malt whiskey here from the Athr? range, this time titled Knocknarea, after the large hill on the west coast of Ireland in County Sligo. This particular expression was initially aged in American oak casks, before enjoying a finishing period in Oloroso sherry casks. Wonderfully well-presented, and the flavour lives up to that presentation!
Nose: Warming cedar and macadamia nut notes, with a touch of fresh linen along the way.
Palate: Classic sherried sweetness unfolds on the palate with zesty orange and dense raisin, plus softly toasty barley hints.
Finish: Almond, chocolate pears, lingering tobacco and peppercorn spiciness.
