    From SMOKEHEAD today the new bottling with a rum cask finish, bottled in the usual 46% vol. And with familiar features.
    • Nose

      It starts with a strong surge of smoked bacon and gum, followed by a heavy sweetness of molasses, before various fruits can be guessed by sniffing in deeper: banana, pear, liquorice, cocoa, a little camphor and olive herb.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Oily sweetness on the palate, some menthol with fiery stone, ripe pear and banana, smoked bacon, some oak spice, salmiak pastilles. The different aromas are very tasty side by side and always allow for new facets, which makes drinking enjoyment very varied. The whisky tolerates air very well.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to long finish, with a dirty sweetness, yellow fruits and a very pleasant spice that ends in a long flow of saliva. The variety of flavors shows itself here once again in all its glory.

    • Finish
