Smokehead Islay

This mystery Islay (we don’t know the distillery) doesn’t live up to the packaging hyperbole — I can’t figure out who the target demographic is. I don’t think that there is such a thing as an “entry level” Islay — if one is going to try one for the first time, one might just as well go for the full qualic experience with of the big three: Laphroaig, Lagavulin or Ardbeg. Anyway, Smokehead is way too “thin” but if you like Islays then this just about falls within the range of what to expect but very much on the less intense side of the spectrum. Would go well with chocolate tasting which is what I’ll do.Smokehead-rock-edition-single-malt-scotch-whisky
