Smokehead is a range of intensely peaty Islay single malt whiskies from undisclosed distilleries on the island. Smokehead whiskies are aimed at younger malt drinkers and those who smoke tradition and dodge the drab! Launched in 2006 by Ian Macleod Distillers, there has been much debate and speculation surrounding the malt in Smokehead. It may come from different Islay distilleries batch to batch or may remain consistent. Our best guess is that the malt comes from Caol Ila.
