Smokehead Bottling Note

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

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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!

Smokehead Reviews


Absolutely beautiful. With a name like that, I was sceptical. But the flavour stunned me: the perfect balance of smoke and sweetness. It's my new number 1 (sorry, Lagavulin).

Lovely dram after dram

Absolute delight to drink. Full of flavour and smooth on the palette. You can easily forget how much your drinking! Must must.

Very good if you like it, probably terrible if you don't

This takes getting used to. I think it was my fourth glass (over four days) before I 'got' this.

Once your taste buds are in synch it's excellent, but if that doesn't happen (as has happened to me with some whiskies) I imaging it will taste pretty horrible.

Ditto the above Just similar to Laphroaig

Incredible whisky

Wow this is great value, i think it’s a young Lagavulin but it could be the famous chameleon Caol Ila. There’s a perfect balance of oaky-ness and Sherry, well rounded and memorable. Very smooth, despite the young age. Bought on offer for £25, a bargain. T

Smoke, smoke, and more smoke

Smoke. A touch of sherry and fruit on the palate, but mostly smoke - which is fine by me!
I bought this on offer at £27, and at that price it's decent value.

Tastes like TCP

Not the worst

Someone called this “the worst whisky” but sorry, that just is not true for me. This outpoints the Ardbeg Wee Beastie by some margin. Smoother, more palatable, chewier. I agree about the smell of rubber, the nose can put you off but the taste is immaculate, smoky and a touch of fruits.

Worst whisky

Pour the cheapest whiskey on the planet into a dirty ash tray and drink, it'll taste the same I reckon.

Its like drinking bonfire

This is all smoke, I couldn't get the bonfire taste out of my mouth even after having a dram to mask it. I did not enjoy this experience.
