Ardbeg Blasda

  1. 1. June 2008 From the World Whisky of the Year – 2008, comes…….
  2. 2. BLASDA A Limited Release
  3. 3. Ardbeg is beyond comparison… … usually.
  4. 4. Until that is, you meet Blasda…!
  5. 5. At only “8 parts per million” BLASDA Begs Comparison
  6. 6. 10 years old Dark Blasda Light
  7. 7. “ BEG” COMPARISON! How would Ardbeg taste without its peaty punch? The peatiest single malt at 56ppm phenol in the malted barley and 24ppm in the bottle 46% abv, non chill-filtered “ Smoked fish and tarry rope” A lightly peated Ardbeg at 25ppm phenol in the malted barley and 8ppm in the bottle 40% abv, chill-filtered “ Sweet, fragrant and refreshing”
  8. 8. 8ppm then we think the best time to enjoy Blasda is……. If Ardbeg can be enjoyed at 8pm
  9. 15. The Whisky Creators say <ul><li>Blasda is a deliciously sweet and refreshing expression of Ardbeg, combining the sweetness of baked banana and toffee with the citrus freshness of lemon and lime, gentle peat oils and a breath of the ocean. </li></ul><ul><li>A calm summer's day on the shores of Islay! </li></ul>Dr Bill Lumsden Rachel Barrie
  10. 16. Tasting Notes from the Whisky Creators <ul><li>  Sweet, fragrant and refreshing, </li></ul><ul><li>Blasda takes you to a calm day on the shores of Islay </li></ul><ul><li>Colour Light Gold </li></ul><ul><li>Nose Deliciously sweet and refreshing. On first nosing, the aroma is reminiscent of baked banoffie pie and roast chestnuts. On further nosing, cloves, pine cones and fresh mint rise from the glass, softened by creamy vanilla custard. A tingle of lemon and lime marmalade cuts through the vanilla with spiced pears followed by a breath of menthol and sea salt. Deep ripe fruits fuse with almond and vanilla. </li></ul><ul><li>With water, the sweet effervescence of sherbet vanilla and chocolate limes burst from the liquid. A bouquet of scented violet, narcissus and chrysanthemum bring a sparkling ethereal fragrance. Cured ham with a dusting of white pepper and cinnamon is served with gentle smoked fish and green peppers, with a sprig of leafy mint on top. </li></ul><ul><li>Taste Refreshing, silky and creamy to the palate, the initial sip is sweet with a mixture of sugared almonds, marzipan and hints of dried fruits. Gentle peat oils well up on the palate, remaining soft, clean and dry with a dusting of powdery parma violets. Tangy lemon juice and orange rind freshen the palate with a gentle fizz. Later tingling spices and creamy cappuccino bring a gentle warmth. </li></ul><ul><li>Finish The finish is medium in length and tingly with a refreshing balance of chrysanthemum tea, clean lemon zest, creamy vanilla and hints of cinnamon spiced apple. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>Dr Bill Lumsden Rachel Barrie
