Smokehead High Voltage Bottling Note

A high-ABV variation on the classic Smokehead Islay single malt, Smokehead High Voltage is described as an "all-out attack" on your senses by its producer. Which, y'know, sounds pretty intense. If you're a fan of heavily-peated whisky, you're in for a treat.

Also, yes, it was incredibly hard to resist making an Electric Six reference when writing this bottling note.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Burnt biscuits, dried earth and a kick of black pepper.

Palate: Oily barley and intense campfire smoke, with a hint of brown sugar underneath.

Finish: Sea salt, oat cakes and smoked paprika.

Smokehead High Voltage Reviews

Blown away by the (gun)smoke

Wow this is what I call bang for the buck!
I am suprised this whisky is only 650 sek, I would compare this with lagavulin cask strengths and octomore, maybe not really as good but no way this is only worth half the price!

Well worth the money

Magical

Great complexity behind a massive smoke curtain

Great malt, in my opinion definitely Ardbeg. Massive amounts of peat overwhelm at first, butafter a few sips open up to a very surprising and nice complexity. At that is price a true gem.

If you like intense big peat, with just a touch of sherry to just take a bit of edge off

A welcome addition to the smokehead range - intense with a hint of sherry with all that lovely peat. Very more-ish - goes down very well, one more if you insist . Yes maybe a little engineered, not a perfect classic malt but a good cask strength peaty malt for a decent price

I'm surprised

Sweety peaty. That's pretty much all I can say about this single malt. A huge disappointment, how can Ian MacLeod go this wrong? Smokehead 43 % version is truly an excellent malt. Cask strength versions are usually much better than regular strength versions. At first I was excited: a new Smokehead, this must a good one. But no, this actually badly engineered malt. I can also see that this is caramel coloured. A regular Smokehead seems not to be. What a hell is going on here? What a waste, this is Ardbeg after all!
