Smokehead is a popular single Islay malt from Ian Macleod distillers. Debate has raged over the identity of the distillery which supplies the whisky for Smokehead. We know, but we're not telling.

    Shaun,

    Single malt Scotch On first impression I got the nose of "burnt plastic" as well as taste, a sort chemical after taste that lingers as well as burnt bark. On the tongue it's silky smooth and easy to swallow, when held in the mouth the smoke/peat comes across as almost unnatural and very raw. When left in the glass for several minutes and a few sips in it wants to grow on you but that chemical nose and aftertaste still shines through and gives you the impression something is just not right. After 20 minutes in and still writing this I feel that this Scotch needs to breathe and warm to the hands before consuming; definitely a wood fireside drink that needs plenty of time to breathe and warm a little before consuming. I rated this two stars, one for being a single malt and two for the mouth feel, but I just cant get past that chemical nose and after taste that's almost akin to burning that white styrofoam electronics packaging, sorry...... I will admit the drink does get better the longer it breathes, so I'd possibly throw in another star and a half.

    Joyce,

    If you like a peaty scotch look no further. This is smooth and reminds of a bonfire in a bottle.

    American Scot,

    Husband and I got this while we were at Hogmanay in December and we LOVED it! He is a fan of smoky whiskys, although I am less so. But I found this very palatable. And besides that, every time he opened the bottle, it smelled like a campfire in the middle of our hotel room. I'm just disappointed it's not available in the US without paying more for shipping than the cost of the bottle.
