Scotland - Islay Single Malt Whisky

0 persons recommended this dram. Recommend it.

We all know Ardbeg packs a peaty punch, but if you remove some of that peat, can Ardbeg still retain its perfect balance?

The mind bog-gling answer is "yes"! By taming our usual mighty peating levels we have created Blasda, peated to an average of just 8 parts per million phenol (8ppm) compared to the more usual 24ppm. Blasda is still perfectly balanced, but light, sweet and delicious.

But in my opinion, a departure from the great style of Ardbeg 10 years old. I didn't like it.

    “A great nose on this Ardbeg but palate and finish are so light... a real pity. It is less earthy that the 10 years old and less exciting”
    This dram has a white wine-like color.

    Nose (90): more than average. peat, honey, citrus, earth, vanilla. Caol Ila? Ardbeg?

    Taste (87): light, smooth. peat, citrus, honey, vanilla, earth, sea.

    Finish (88): average. peat, citrus, honey.
