Smokehead is a rich, seaweedy and intensely peaty whisky. The flavour is fresh, fruity and immense, with notes of sherry, iodine, toffee, smoke and sea salt all fighting for recognition.
Heavy smoke and peat aromas with an amazing richness and notes of lemon, fresh ginger and plum jam. Salty and spicy.
Like a cannonball it hits the palate at once with cocoa, peat and some honey sweetness which then explodes with peppery spices and more earthy peat. The taste spreads to all of your mouth with more peat and light sweetness.
Even more peat on the finish with spice and mandarin which then dries up. Just as you think the taste is all over, the peat comes back to hit you again.
