Whisky Reviews for Smokehead High Voltage IM

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.27 points

  1. Ostfriese scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    An intense and charismatic Islay whisky. The enormous peat smoke is certainly not for the occasional connoisseur of smoky whiskys, because the name says it all. The 58 vol.% Push the flavors additionally. I personally like the intensity of the aromas of this whisky in combination with the powerful smoke.
    • Nose
      I get a good dose of peat smoke in my nose. At first it is so present that it covers everything else and the alcohol stings easily in the nose. Other aromas slowly emerge from the background, oranges, plum jam, peat moss, earthy-mineral notes. Vanilla, sherry notes and tobacco. Iodine and phenolic notes conclude.
    • Taste
      It starts off slightly fruity with a creamy mouthfeel before the powerful smoke mixed with sparks fills the throat and the alcohol squeezes properly. Spicy and salty notes dominate before hazelnuts, roasted aromas, caramel, forest honey and citrus aromas come to the fore.
    • Finish
      Long. Cooling peat smoke and spices. Pepper, cloves and nutmeg. Hints of coffee. A slight sweetness mixes with salty sea water.
