A fascinating little gem from the Czech Republic, this single malt was made from Czech barley which was milled using a hammer mill, thus the name Hammer Head! This is a 1989 vintage and it's really rather wonderful!
Nose: Perfumed and floral with notes of sweet vanilla, walnut, almonds and coffee beans. A touch of acetone, tarmac and fresh flowers.
Palate: Thick and warming, spices, malt, aniseed and cinnamon. Toasty, aromatic, hints of bergamot.
Finish: Cigar leaves and pepper, honeycomb, herbal.

A fairly introspective whisky with a developing expression from almost herbaceous vivacity through to a satisfying - strangely - acetone/lemon drops complexion. A whisky for setting the scene for more accomplished distilleries, the Hammer Head is a whisky with a delightfully light finish which has longevity but doesn't overstay its welcome.

Strange nose on this expression, very floral overtones but a solvent like undertones. Had a slight smell of a weak milky coffee. Very comforting on the palate, taste more like an aperitif than a whisky like a weak Pastis with a lot of aniseed and a licorice finish. Quite an interesting expression, not my favorite but it's definitely worth a tasting.
