A high-ABV variation on the classic Smokehead Islay single malt, Smokehead High Voltage is described as an “all-out attack” on your senses by its producer. Which, y’know, sounds pretty intense. If you’re a fan of heavily-peated whisky, you’re in for a treat.
Also, yes, it was incredibly hard to resist making an Electric Six reference when writing this bottling note.
Nose: Burnt biscuits, dried earth and a kick of black pepper.
Palate: Oily barley and intense campfire smoke, with a hint of brown sugar underneath.
Finish: Sea salt, oat cakes and smoked paprika.
