Tasting Notes: Athrú 6 Year Oloroso Sherry Single Cask Whiskey Review
Honey, lemon, plantain, caramel, and oak. Vanilla cereal sweetness fights its way to the forefront, caramel, oak follows in the background with some sherry wine notes. Dried fruit, toffee and nutmeg.
This whiskey has a luxurious mouthfeel, creamy, smooth and velvety. Think about letting top-quality chocolate melt on your tongue. The vanilla dissolves into cereals notes mixed with cinnamon spice on the side of the tongue. The vanilla and chocolate melt away, as a faint touch of coffee appears.
The finish starts with a great creaminess, with undertones of fruit cake and light chocolate notes from the sherry cask. Bottled at 59.2% ABV you might expect a slight alcohol burn, but there really is none, which can be unusual for a youngish whiskey. A light spice remains on the finish with a light warmth that leaves you wanting another pour.
