Whiskey straw-yellow color.
Balanced marine taste Smokehead, like a cannonball - just amazes sky cocoa peat and some honey sweetness, then explosively hot spices and more earthy peat turning into tones of iodine, toffee, citrus, exotic fruits, sea salt, smoke of campfires and touch of sherry . Peat, as a "roller coaster", returns in a powerful finale along with spices and subtle sweetness of exotic fruit, becoming eventually grassy.
Aggressive, fresh, explosive scent literally knocks down his surprise - a rich nose with smoke and charcoal fat peat, which gives way to the spice and floral-fruity notes of eucalyptus, fresh ginger, paprika, herbs de Provence, lemon, plum jam, pear. Also there are notes of sherry, iodine, toffee and sea spray. Amazing wealth.

Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd - one of the largest and most widely respected independent family-owned companies in the alcohol industry, founded in 1936 by Leonard Russell, who is the great-grandfather of today's general director Ian Macleod. The founder of the company attached great importance to independence, and without favoring any of whiskey producers, he bought only the products that meet its standards and requirements of its customers. Success strengthened his conviction and within a few years it had approved for the company an enviable reputation in the Scotch whiskey industry. Today the company owns many brands, including Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky, Lang's Blended Scotch Whisky, Hedges & Butler, King Robert II, London Hill Gin and many others. Ian Macleod produces and sells more than 15 million bottles of alcohol annually. Offering a wide range of different varieties of whiskey (along with gin, rum, vodka and liqueurs premium), the company decided to bring the ranks of whiskey connoisseurs of the younger generation, offering a new variety of single malt in a bright, modern style. In 2006 the company introduced whiskey Smokehead. The idea for a new product appeared as managing director Leonard Russell visited Islay Whisky Festival, where he noticed among the fans of the local strong smoky whiskey many young people. Thus, it was decided to buy whiskey from Islay plants and package them for the modern consumer. Based on the idea and the name Smokehead (from Eng. Smoky - smoky), the development of packaging and label the product Russell instructed the design agency Navyblue. Rejecting the traditional whiskey packaging with heraldic emblems and seals, the designers have created a unique brand that simultaneously breaks the mold of whiskey packaging, preserving its heritage and origins. Embossed tin tube demonstrates many embossed on it adjectives that describe the characteristics of the beverage. Words such as "strong", "strong" and "energetic" characterize complex and strong aromas of Islay whiskeys, with its peat, sweet, smoky and spicy taste. Home label uniquely positioned on the rear side of the glass bottle so that the same descriptive word viewed through the beverage. On the traditions and history Smoukheda reminds font in the form of traditional wooden beams, reminiscent of stamps on the barrels of whiskey, and color of the text on the bottle
