Hogshead is a "secret recipe" of vatted single malt scotch whisky, designed by Ed Kohl at Signatory. Well, not so much a secret, just tricky to find out. Okay, we'll tell you: 67% 8-year Linkwood, and the rest is 3-year Lagavulin. (Refers to earlier batches pre-2009)
Nose is of peat and wood smoke, and slightly farty. That fartiness often announces bad things to come... but not here! The palate is tasty and great. Smoky and rich for sure, very tasty. This continues in the medium-length finish. A tasty, smoky, well-priced treat.
