Smokehead Islay Whisky Launches New Daring Expression: ‘Tequila Cask Terminado’ 

Smokehead is challenging whisky lovers to explore a new way to experience their beloved Islay Single Malt Whisky with Tequila Cask Terminado. This experimental serve invites those with a rebellious spirit to experience classic whisky like never before.

Smokehead’s Tequila Cask Terminado is the newest addition to its line of innovative spirits. The whiskey is produced by ageing it in ex-Bourbon barrels and then finishing it in Mexican Tequila oak casks. It joins Rum Cask Rebel, Sherry Cask Blast, and Twisted Stout in Smokehead’s mission to provide a unique spin on a classic.

Tequila Cask Terminado invites you to take a wild journey of taste. Its smoky, peaty aroma reveals chewy meringue, blood orange, and BBQed pineapple. Its smooth toffee, vibrant lime, and ambrosian peach notes make it a great drink to enjoy in both intimate and social settings. This whisky, with its unruly nature and zest for experimentation, will make any party truly memorable.

Smokehead recommends letting the liquid speak for itself and serving it straight, on the rocks, or, for cocktail aficionados, a *’Palominado’. However, Smokehead would never limit the ways their whisky can be enjoyed and inquisitiveness is encouraged.
