Smokehead is a superb, cult single malt from Ian MacLeod. Just a massive, thick peat smoke rich dram. Plenty of great south Islay character.

Nose: Smoke! Lapsang souchong. Cool wood smoke. Thick and full.
Palate: Big, puckering peat. Smoky, fruity sweetness, touch of sherry, sultana. Herbal.
Finish: Herbal, tangy fruits and more peat smoke!
