Proof66 Notes

Smokehead Single Islay Malt scotch is made at the Glengoyne Distillery under the supervision of Ian Macleod Distilleries. As should be obvious from the label, it is a celebration of the peat reek for which Islay scotch is particularly famous. They call it "seaweedy" and "intensely peaty" making for a "really vigorous whisky."
