About Smokehead Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Smokehead Islay Single Malt is a product of Ian Macleod Distillers. First developed and branded in February of 2006, Smokehead is a NAS Whisky from an undisclosed distillery. The bold peaty single malt is presented to appeal to both younger and older “rockers,” and was awarded two Gold Medals by the Beverage Testing Institutes’ in 2009, and was highly acclaimed for its signature smoking skull motif.

In 2007 the Smokehead brand extended their lineup with an Extra Rare release, that included a travel retail exclusive bottling. in October 2008 an 18-year-old Smokehead Extra Black was introduced, an expression that was also available in travel retail and domestic retailers (A new Travel Retail Smokehead Rock Edition II was also released April of 2017).

In 2009 Smokehead became the signature brand of choice for the Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards as well as the Marshall Ultimate Band Contest. Until 2011 Smokehead was the signature drink for the event which featured rock artists and industry rock legends like Slash, Brian May, Jeff Beck and Gene Simmons.

In 2012 the Smokehead Rock Limited Edition was officially introduced as a special limited edition release, designed to ‘celebrate its credentials as the rock n’ roll spirit of choice’.

The non-age-statement Smokehead single malt has a flavor profile distinctly reminiscent of Ardberg whiskies, with its rich, seaweed and intensely peaty tones. Smokehead has aromas of ‘honeyed raisin scone, dried peaches and medical tinctures with a hint of cedar and mesquite-like smokiness’, with 'good depth and lingering body' and 'subtly complex and earthy smoked wood, leather and a prairie grass driven finish’ (BTI).

The single malt also has notes of sherry, iodine, toffee, smoke and sea salt, and is bottled at 43% ABV.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
