Smokehead, the independently bottled Islay whisky that is known for its smoky flavour, what’s in a name? But did you know that the folks at Smokehead have been experimenting with aging their whisky in tequila casks?
That’s right, the mad scientists at Smokehead have been mixing things up and creating a whisky that will blow your sombrero off.
We’ve never seen finish like this before. We can’t wait to see how it affects the flavour and if it indeed will make our taste buds having a fiesta:
Very sweet, some candy, peaches and pineapple, a hint of wholewheat bread, smoked salmon, leather and smoke
Metallic on the tongue at first, and then there comes a tropical storm with lots of pineapple
Tropical fruits, like banana and peaches dance on top of nicely integrated oak and smoke, it’s warming and goes down easy
The result is a whisky that has all of the smoky, peaty flavor that Smokehead is known for, but with a distinct twist of tequila-induced sweetness and spice.
We guarantee that this Smokehead finished in tequila casks will make you say “¡Olé!” (or at least make you want to). When you’re a fan of peated whisky of course. Whether you’re having a night in with friends, or trying to bring some variety to your tasting session, this whisky will surely impress.
