There are odd drams out there, ones that don’t really sound…. too amazing, yet you need to try. You need to somehow hunt them down and have a dram, because this insane alcoholic game of Pokemon you have going in your head.
Wait, just me? Alright then, moving along.
Given the description, Ardbeg Blasda is an odd duck. It’s bottled at 8ppm compared to the typical 24ppm. It’s meant to be lightly peated. It costs a lot and it’s hard to get. And for what? Why would you drink a lightly peated Ardbeg? What next, a Lowland that doesn’t have strong floral notes?
I wanted to try this dram, none the less. So I ordered a sample, because sometimes I have more money than sense.
