Who said heavy peat doesn’t go with Sherried flavors?

Smokehead is a peat project of Ian Macleod Distillers, a family company that has been producing different Whisky for three generations. The identity of the exact distillery is unknown and the mystery to this almost cult brand has got a firm base of thirsty followers. The approach to the production of this phenolic Islay Malt is as fresh and crisp as this straightforward dram itself. As the Whisky industry searches for new ways of presenting and selling their products, there are those few that start a new wave of something different. And that is what this peat bullet is all about as it goes away from classic Scotch drinkers and lures more drinkers into this peaty, smoky and heathery cave!

Smokehead Sherry Bomb Single Malt Scotch Whisky is an annual release but it’s limited. Smoky, spicy, and sweet, this is a heavily-peated Smokehead that was blasted by Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks. The smoke? Thick. The spices? Rich. The fruit notes? Dried. And the peat? Warming. Don’t let the black bottle with the fiery red skull intimidate you and indulge your senses in this Smokehead cannonball.
