“First Abhainn Dearg single malt. Promising whisky in a few years but right now is very immature ”
Established in 2008, Abhainn Dearg is the most westerly distillery in Scotland.
And they have just released their single malt at a incredible retail price of £150. Looks like they are targeting their single malt to collectors instead of drinkers.
It isn't a bad whisky but it has still a long way to mature in the cask until it is a good one.
This dram has a white wine-like color.
Nose (75): more than average. floral, fruits. Very newmake even after 3 years.
Palate (79): dry, powerful. many floral, honey, spices, pepper. Slightly sharp. Maybe a few years more on the cask?
Finish (79): longer than average. floral, licorice, spices.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Abhainn Dearg 2008 / First Bottling Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky with 78 points over 100.
