Released in 2011, this is the first whisky to be released by Abhainn Dearg, the first distillery to operate in the Outer Hebrides for almost 200 years. Pronounced ‘Aveen Jarræk’ and meaning ‘Red River Distillery’, Abhainn Dearg was established in 2008 and is Scotland’s most westerly distillery.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/09/2012

Appearance

Clear, pale straw yellow.

Aroma

New make spirit and freshly baked doughy wholemeal bread with faint vanilla and cinnamon spice.

Taste

Linseed oil, new make, creamy barley, nubuck leather and light cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Medium length with creamy barley, dough bread and light nutmeg. Perhaps more reminiscent of a new American rather than Scottish whisky. Light, new leather and morish.
