A Peat project gone Stellar!
 
Smokehead is a peat project of Ian Macleod Distillers, a family company that has been producing different Scotch Whiskies (and other spirits) for three generations now. Their brands include Glengoyne, Tamdhu, and Isle of Skye
 
Smokehead Extra Rare is a Scotch Whisky made on the Island of Islay by a mystery distillery  - many guess it to be Ardbeg, or even Lagavulin. It remains to be uncovered, this mystery, by none other than yourself. We won't reveal it! Do you dare take upon this tongue challenge? Fair warning - Smokehead is not for the faint-hearted. It hits you like a cannonball filled with peat.  
As the Whisky industry searches for new ways of presenting and selling their products, there are those few that start a new wave of something different. And that is what this peat bullet is all about as it goes away from classic Scotch drinkers and lures more drinkers into this peaty, smoky and heathery cave!

Corner
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.
