SMOKEHEAD, the new Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky launched last year by Ian Macleod Distillers.
Nose: Heavy smoke and peat. Amazing richness. Lemon, fresh ginger, plum jam. Salty and spicy.
Body: Like a cannonball - hits the palate at once with cocoa, peat and some honey sweetness then explodes with peppery spice and more earthy peat. Spreads to all the areas of your mouth with more peat and light sweetness.
Finish: Even more peat, spice, mandarin - then dries up. When you think it's all over the peat comes back to hit you again.
Comments A rollercoaster of peat and spice with some delicate sweetness.
