Smokehead Extra Rare

Smokehead Extra RareHeavily peated Islay single malt whisky of the highest quality

Smokehead Extra Rare is a rich, seaweedy and intensely peaty whisky. The flavour is fresh, fruity and immense, with notes of sherry, iodine, toffee, smoke and sea salt all fighting for recognition.

A really vigorous whisky not for the faint hearted… savour and enjoy!

Nose: Heavy smoke and peat. Amazing richness. Lemon, fresh ginger, plum jam. Salty and spicy.

Body: Like a cannonball – hits the palate at once with cocoa, peat and some honey sweetness then explodes with peppery spice and more earthy peat. Spreads to all the areas of your mouth with more peat and light sweetness.

Finish: Even more peat, spice, mandarin – then dries up. When you think it’s all over the peat comes back to hit you again.

Impresssion: A rollercoaster of peat and spice with some delicate sweetness.
