Bewertungsnotizen und Auszeichnungstext Original in Englisch:
AltSmokehead has been awarded an International Review of Spirits' Gold Medal by the highly respected Beverage Testing Institute (BTI).
Judged by an expert panel from BTI in the institution's Chicago Tasting Room, Smokehead was awarded an 'Exceptional' rating of 91/100 for its explosive, peaty flavours. With the appearance of 'bright old gold', the panel commented on the Single Malt's 'aromas of honeyed raisin scone, dried peaches and medical tinctures with a hint of cedar and mesquite-like smokiness'. The BTI also commented on Smokehead’s 'good depth and lingering body' with 'subtly complex and earthy smoked wood, leather and a prairie grass driven finish'.
The International Review of Spirits' Gold Medal for Smokehead’s rich and complex flavours, follows two Gold Medals from BTI in the 2009 International Review of Spirits Packaging Competition. These recognised the brand’s innovative, bold and modern packaging in the Creativity and Graphic Design categories.
Since launching in 2006, Smokehead Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky has won a number of awards for both its eye-catching packaging and balanced, seaweedy flavours, including the Scottish Field Whisky Challenge Gold Medal and Wine & Spirits Design Awards for Best Dark Spirit and the overall Trophy for Design of the Year.
