S chon on the first nose is quite clear which malt you have here in the glass! I will tell in a personal conversation like to thirsty for knowledge.
A clear cloud of smoke is spreading, the first blocked everything! Really everything. This lasts for a moment, then the whole thing opens again and malt, caramel and sweetness as well as dark fruits are now recognizable, until cold ashes spread again. Also a hint of iron notes of meat can be tasted. The Smokehead High Voltage offers this but quite one after the other, you have to take a little time. In addition, one has little alcohol in the nose despite its luscious 58% vol. Alc. Has something of a raw ribeye steak doused with Islay whisky.
T he first goes first time the palate, a nice peppery occupied him completely intense and smoky. Still not brutal but oily and warming. Here, too, you gradually taste different notes, the Smokehead has clearly mineral notes, earth, some iron, then notes of dark chocolate, nut and wood. Again and again the sweetness returns and mixes pleasantly with the other tastes. The alcohol is fantastically integrated, barely noticeable. I had not expected that at all, because especially the independent, boys, always come wild with a lot of alcohol. Convince the high voltage through its thoroughly dark notes, it is really delicious. I did not add water, it did not need it, you can always do it, but you do not have to.
T he departure how can it be different is intense and long. You can also taste it a while later, leaving some orange peel and dark chocolate. Delicious. Can I only recommend it.
