smokeheadA bold, newcomer into the peaty fray, Smokehead makes it's appearance on the whisky world full of mystery.  From an undisclosed distillery somewhere on the southwestern islands of Scotland comes this youthful whisky full of peat, smoke and honeyed malt. As edgy as its packaging design and advertising direction, this Islay from Ian McLeod Distillers is a winner.

SUGGESTED CHOCOLATE PAIRING

Chuao - Miel (Nut & Honeylicious)

Miel is a suprising match with Smokehead.  It accentuates the almost hidden notes of honey and malt while its gristy texture is an ideal counter point to the creamy silkiness of this scotch. Enjoy its sweet honey almond and hazelnut praline enrobed in the riches milk chocolate you will ever taste.  Click here to purchase.

SUGGESTED CIGAR PAIRING

Don Pepin Garcia Serie JJ Maduro

An excellent Cubanesque cigar for a fabulous new Islay single malt. The JJ Maduro offers chocolate, coffee, spice and pepper to this malts powerful smoke and peat. The creamy smoke of the cigar helps coat the mouth and tame the bite of Smokehead, while expanding upon the complex flavors in the malt. Click here to purchase.
