Smokehead 43%
Islay Single Malt bottled by Ian Macleod Distillers
colour: medium gold.
nose: big peat, iodine, smoke, very fruity-lemon, orange, apple, toffee, sherry notes in the background, sea spray, oak, vanilla, complex, very attractive.
palate: coating, peaty, salt, tongue buzz.
finish: big helping of peat & iodine, sweet fruits, salty sea spray, toffee, sherry notes, oak, vanilla, tar, seaweed, brine, smokey finale, long finish.
notes: very interesting, big peat & iodine with a good mix of other flavours, some shy, some not. Complex, big initial impact then trails off to the smokey death only to come back and linger by the sea.
This could fall under the ‘love it or hate it’ banner but whatever you do, try it!
Nice packaging with loads of descriptive words that suit the liquid within.
