Fiery, peaty, full on Smokehead meets sweet, silky, smooth stout. Caskmates, soulmates, quite possibly inmates. And the results are as twisted as your taste buds will be. Some pairings are made for each other. Others, like oily smoke and vanilla ice cream, are clearly not. Which is the bit we find the most interesting. A single malt partly finished in stout casks. The best of both worlds, bottled for a very limited release.
Whether for yourself or as a gift, create a personalised gift tag for your bottle of Smokehead below.
The usual island intensity of Smokehead comes cloaked in sweet aromas of chocolate and treacle toffee. Maritime air meets a decent pint on the shore. Unexpected. Unusual. And unsettling for the senses.
You're past the point of no return now. Hot and soothing at the same time. Salty smoke weaves its way around dry roasted nuts, toasted marshmallow, vanilla ice-cream and...is that someone putting a pot of fresh coffee on?
New flavours unlocked. Old favourites reunited, Wood smoke and spices. Malty, toasted biscuits. Zingy citrus. Dark and delicious. A fitting sign off from the twisted lovechild of whisky and beer.
