Smokehead Islay Scotch Whisky

Introducing a new Islay Scotch Whisky from Ian Macleod Distillery. Reminiscent of the heavy, rich, spicy smoke popularized by the big hitters of Laphroaig, Lagavulin, and Ardbeg, this new player to the mix delivers on the smoke. A light initial mouthfeel hides the intensity to come as waves of campfire smoke and peat shine through the palate and finish. A refined smoothness welcomes the swallow, leaving a briny finish to cool the upfront punch of smoke. If you find yourself in Scotland, keep an eye out for Dram & Smoke pop-up feasts where you can sample this Whisky paired with dishes of smoked chicken and octopus skewers! Drinkers familiar to Bowmore and Talisker will appreciate the quality of this bottle at an affordable price of $49.99. Head on in today and welcome Fall with something new for your collection.
