Smokehead Rum Rebel
You Save: £5.00
From Ian MacLeod Distillers, the original Smokehead was first released in 2006, a mystery Islay single malt full of thick smoke and spices. Then, in a creative feat Smokehead managed to put its whisky stamp on International Rum Day in 2020 by releasing Rum Rebel, which is finished in ex-Caribbean rum casks.
The savoury, smoky notes from the Islay whisky base pair brilliantly with the sweetness of the rum cask, which brings a very healthy dose of tropical fruit and sweetness to the spirit. It’s a classic pairing of sweet and savoury that satisfies both cravings with bold flavours.
Honey-glazed bacon, barbecued pineapple, and drying smoke, with biscuity sweetness and golden syrup.
Burnt shortbread cookies, white chocolate, and a big hit of peppery spice, followed by salted caramel and juicy mango.
A lengthy finish of peat smoke, cinnamon, and blood orange.
