Ardbeg Blasda is an experiment from the people of Ardbeg. It got its name from the Galic meaning of the word Blasda, which means Sweet and delicious.
Some people say that they are the kings of making peated whisky, so they took it upon themselves to create a whisky that wasn’t as peated as their others. The Blasda has a peated level of 8ppm compared to the 10 year old which has a peated level of 50 ppm, ppm stand for phenol in parts per million.
They invented this lower peated whisky to attract none peat whisky drinkers to a whole new style of whisky. It is an introduction for them to experience the difference in flavour on a small level, rather than diving right in and drinking a bottle of the ardbeg 10 yo.
It is a very subtle and flavourful whisky full of fruity flavour and floral aromas. A great introduction to peated whisky and we believe the experiment paid off.
