Smokehead is another of those mysterious whiskies, where nobody can quite figure out where it was distilled. It’s certainly a single malt Islay whisky, which narrows it down. Educated guesses on the provenance of the whisky include Lagavulin and Ardbeg – but at this point, they are mere guesses. Smokehead is marketed at a younger audience, with a label that shuns the traditional whisky labelling for something more contemporary. This is one whisky that does everything it can to stand out from the crowd and generate interest.
For those looking to step away from tradition and try something a little bolder, we recommend heading in the direction of Smokehead. If you’re a fan of plumes upon plumes of thick, smokey flavour, then this superb single malt whisky is just about as smokey as they get.
First released in 2006, the Smokehead brand now encompasses a selection of different Scotch whiskies, including the popular High Voltage and Sherry Bomb blends, as well as the full-bodied Smokehead Extra Black, a peaty 18-year old Scotch that certainly packs a punch.
Smokehead whisky has been winning fans everywhere thanks to it’s bold, full-on flavour profiles that are truly an assault on the senses, and they’re certainly not afraid to shout about them. At The Whisky World, you’ll discover a fantastic range of exciting new whiskies that will most certainly become a mainstay in your spirit cabinet.
