Described as being like a cannonball,
Smokehead is an explosive combination of
peat, smoke and spice with some delicate
sweetness. The single malt flavour is
described as fresh, fruity and immense,

smoke and sea salt. The taste hits the
palate at once with cocoa, peat and some
honey sweetness, before exploding with
peppery spice and more earthy peat.
