(Islay) Smokehead Malt Whisky  70cl

Smokehead Malt Whisky is a new single malt from Ian Macleod Distillers in a big South Islay style. "Its like a cannonball - an explosive rollercoaster of peat, smoke and spice with some delicate sweetness!" say the producers. Nose: Smoky tea, an ashiness like a fire grate the morning after. Palate: A little fruitiness, like black grapes. Some sweetness too and a herb character (almost basil, but not quite). Instant dry smoke (suggesting youth) but calms down a little and mellows in the centre. Finish: Lots of smoke, masking a fruitniness. Overall: That Lapsang Souchong character is distinctive. Attractive youth, resolutely smoky but with a class. Lauren Bacall before the wrinkles
