Smokehead Islay Single Malt is an intensely rich and subtly sweet whisky which is full of Islay character.

Bottled by Ian Macleod Distillers, the distillery that supplies the malt for Smokehead is unknown. However, we do know for sure that with its immense smoke and notes of sea salt and spice, Smokehead is a whisky that stands out from the crowd!  

Comes in a presentation tin.

Tasting Notes

Smokehead has aromas of thick, heavy woodsmoke, earthy peat with some sweetness and spice of fresh lemons, zesty ginger and rich plum jam. On the palate it's an eplosion of peppery, peaty heat which is soothed by honeyed sweetness before the smoke takes over again. The finish has some underlying citrus and spice before the peat roars back.

The perfect serve

Enjoy Smokehead your way. We recommend sipping, over ice or to make a cocktail such as the Smoked Fashioned.

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.
