Tasting Notes

High Voltage is intensely peaty with a maritime note, vanilla and caramel on the nose. The palate is unsurprisingly big and fiery with oily campfire smoke, earth and pepper. The finish is coastal; sea spray and rock pools, along with lingering peat and a slight biscuity sweetness.

The perfect serve

Enjoy Smokehead your way. We recommend sipping, over ice or to make a cocktail such as the Smoked Ginger with ginger beer, lemon juice and crushed root ginger.

Meet the maker

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.
