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, this'll be right up your street.

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

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

My (non drinking) Husband brought this home, brought me a glass, I was expecting my usual and nearly spat out the first taste. Informed him it tasted like a lump of burnt peat had been left in the bottle, it was undrinkable, it tasted like a smoke damaged apartment smells after the fire brigade have hosed it down, and could he take it back to the shop?

He looked a bit shamefaced and said ‘probably not - I think it pretty much does what it says on the label’

True that. Still awful.

Not so sure

I do not really see what all the fuss is about. The overwhelming alcohol bite masks a lot of the initial notes and underwhelming smokeyness leaves my taste buds rather confused as to what is going on inside this bottle. Not for me. Not a terrible Whiskey by any means but, for the cost, you can definitly buy better alternatives!

Qualifies as a go to

Shits all over the regular Smoke Head. That was just a poor man’s laphroaig. This is pay good money for

The best islay blend! Nuff said!

Grilled ham/bacon dipped in sea water then rolled in dark chocolate. Yummy!

Top notch from macleods

This is the business in the taste stakes overall I couldn't fault this spot on now one of my favourite malts

For strong tasters

Delivery arrived this morning and just had a sample taste...
The tasting notes don't lie.
If you like peaty Islay whisky you will love this.
Rich, deep nose and wonderfully warming. Enjoy...

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

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
