‘Pouring Less Boring’: Scotch Brand Smokehead Releases Whisky Finished in Tequila Casks

Ian Macleod Distillers has released a single malt whisky finished in tequila casks from its brand Smokehead, The Spirits Business reported Tuesday.

Bottled at 43% ABV, Smokehead Tequila Cask Terminado is available exclusively via Amazon and the Smokehead website for a suggested retail price of £68.99 ($82) per 700-milliliter bottle.

“Smokehead is a brand that constantly pushes the boundaries of what a single malt whisky is – and how it’s perceived,” brand director Iain Weir said, according to The Spirits Business. “By embracing contemporary methods of finishing, we’re at the forefront of innovation – both as a brand and within the industry at large. All for the benefit of our valued customers.

“Tequila Cask Terminado is more than a passion project for us. It’s an embodiment of everything Smokehead stands for. Rule-breaking, ‘pouring less boring’ and defiance.”

Smokehead released a promotional video for the new whiskey on its YouTube channel.
