The Ardbeg Blasda was a widely released Ardbeg in 2008, 2009 and 2010, available at every corner shop for two pennies (well, sort of). The Ardbeg Blasda is slightly peated, with ‘Blasda’ meaning as much as ‘lovely and sweet’ in Gaelic. This is how we would describe our grandmother. Like it or not, fact is that this single malt whisky is now pretty darn rare and therefore a great collectible. And would you take a look at that bottle? If that isn’t designed greatly, then we don’t know what is.
