Ardbeg Blasda Bottling Note

Blasda represents a rare chance to sample a lightly-peated dram from the powerhouse Ardbeg distillery. The malt is peated at 8ppm as opposed to the standard 55ppm.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Chocolate éclair sweets and dry coastal driftwood, toffee and refreshers sweets with but a hint of gentle smoke. Despite these dangerously low levels of peat, this is still characteristically Ardbeg.

Palate: By what alchemy is it possible for something to be both so creamy and spiced so? There’s a lovely herbal development and all the time the sweetness of vanilla and peppermint creams with the semi medicinal undertones of Resolve hangover cure.

Finish: The minty sweetness of the peppermint creams with an interesting little development of sticking plasters. Comment: It still retains the distillery character. But, whilst a very good whisky, this is not a very good Ardbeg...

Ardbeg Blasda Reviews

Great Whiskey, but unusual for and Ardbeg.

Great whiskey and one of my favorites, totally different from the usual heavily peated Ardbegs, unfortunately increasingly hard to find at the second hand market anymore.

So wonderful - make some 'more!

This is one of finest whiskeys I've tasted, nice and smokey but still soft and smooth. Please please make some more!

A nice change

For a lighter whiskey, or for those like my wife who don't enjoy the ashtray licking experience that is traditionally associated with ardbeg, it's a wonderful drink. I tend towards smoke, but thoroughly enjoyed the Blasda. The price turned out to be a little eye watering though, especially as we picked up a bottle for about the same as the regular. R

wonderful whisky

Not to be judged against other Ardbegs but on it's own merits - in which case I must agree with the 1st comment. Wonderful, comforting malt. Almost buttery. Gentle peat. Long finish will leave you wanting more. I would definately buy a bottle (only sampled 3cl) if i can find one for less than 180GBP. Won't blow your head off - its not supposed to - but does what it says on the tin!

Cheaper for a sample than a full bottle if you price it up £ per litre

Too expensive

Perfect single malt whiky but sold +/- 25% to expensive over here!!

Comment #3 ???

The third commentator certainly has a complexity towards Bruichladdich, this is an Ardbeg, what does Bruichladdich have to do with it?? Btw if i had a distillery i'd loove it to "sink" to the Laddie levels ;) Anyway competent enough but kindof a weaker ardbeg instead of different, being bottled at 40% doesn't help. It is decent enough though

Surprisingly Good!

I am a huge Ardbeg fan, particularly the peatier expressions but I thought I would give the Blasda a go since I have tried almost all the others. On the nose, you can tell straight away this is an Ardbeg and it is smokier than expected. It doesn't finish as long as some but this is a very well controlled finish. I think I will be making this a regular bottle to match my Uigeadail and Rollercoaster!

Very Interesting

While I think this is a good whisky, it seems more like an experiment for ardbeg. I think this whisky would of benefited from been bottled at 46%-48% and been non-chill filtered like the Ardbeg 10 as it seems to finish a lot quicker then their other whisky labels. Overall while the Blasda is very nice I think Ardbeg could do a lot better. Hopefully they have another attempt at a lightly peated whisky.

Ardbeg's Great Mistake!

Ardbeg is a great distillery and a superb place to visit. The malts are incredible - truly unique! This however may go down as Ardbeg's attempt to try to rival Bruichladdich marketing. It is a hotpotch of a malt which is all over the place. There is no need for Ardbeg to sink to the 'Laddie levels. Forget this and try the true taste of Ardbeg the others are amazing.
