Whisky Reviews for Abhainn Dearg 2008

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 39.52 points

  1. Callanish scored this whisky 85 points Newbie

    It is a 3 years old whisky that was manufactured in a harsh reality and I would say Abhainn Dearg will never be for "branded" whisky drinkers, who are comfortable to fall over each marketing stick brought into way by the big ones. It has a definite originality and character that no other scotch has today. I am looking forward to see this whisky 15 years plus.

  2. Stewie scored this whisky 48 points Member Senior

    A very young, harsh whisky that has a kind of metallic finish
