A powerfully peated, cask strength Islay Single Malt with attitude.

Ian Macleod Distillers is the biggest Scotch company that you’l probably never heard of. Founded in 1933, they produce more than fifteen million bottles of Spirits every year, making them the 10th largest producer in Scotland. They source and produce across two dozen or so brands and also do private-label production for other producers, restaurant chains, and even stores across Europe. And the entire operation is still family owned and operated from the south side of Edinburgh.

Smokehead is one of Ian Mcleod’s premier brands. As the name directly implies, the Smokehead line includes three Islay Single Malts that make no pretense about being “soft” or “smooth.” They come right at you with a bug puff of smoke and no apologies. Heck… there’s even a skull on the label. Smokehead High Voltage is their signature smoky dram delivered at a cask strength of 58% ABV. They describe it as an “all-out attack on your senses.” Sure… we get it. But this is a youthful and heavily peated — but very flavorful — dram that’s true to its roots and will not come as a too big a shock to fans of Islay Whisky. But you will come back for seconds.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color Cool

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is strong with deep peat and seaweed aromas along with dry biscuits and brittle toffee.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
If you take you Whisky neat, this dram will bite you back. On the rocks or with a splash the flavors open up with roasted nuts, sea spray, orange zest, campfire smoke, and candied pralines.

The finish is long, longer, longest with lingering notes of granola and — you guessed it — more smoke.
