Tasting Notes

"Smokehead Rum Rebel certainly has a different profile than the standard expression. There's comparatively subtle smoke and a whiff of smoked bacon, but also grilled pineapple, ripe bananas and tinned peaches. Sweet arrival on the palate with orange marmalade and some salted caramel, followed by crisp smoke and earthy peat, as well as some lively cracked black pepper. The fruity, sweet rum influence is nicely integrated with the classic Islay flavours. Job wel done!"
