This week, I was invited along to The Smokehead Feast to enjoy a unique experience with mind-blowing cocktails (literally!). Alongside trying bold, and smoky dishes to invigorate our tastebuds!
What Did The Night With Smokehead Entail?
As soon as me, and my best friend, Amy, walked into the venue at the Fairfield Social Club in Manchester, the experience had already begun! The event not only triggered your taste buds, it was an all-rounded sensory overload! From smell to sight, the theme of the event was very apparent. We were promised an immersive evening, and that is definitely what we received!
What Was the Aim of The Smokehead Feast?
The aim of the evening was to promote the launch of the new Smokehead High Voltage Whisky. It’s 58% and is a Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
“This whisky is definitely not for the faint-hearted.”
According to everyone who was seated on my table, it gives you this instant hit of intense heat at the back your throat. Your tastebuds become temporarily numb, as they become overwhelmed with a mix of smoky and sweetness. The stark contrast between the two is what makes this whisky so unique. The whisky connoisseurs of the table showed a massive appreciation, for how different this whisky is, to anything they’ve ever tried before.
Would I Recommend Smokehead Whisky?
I’m not a whisky drinker myself, but I wanted to give it a try to see if I could be swayed. As Smokehead’s slogan says…
“It’s not for everyone.”
I have to say that out of all the cocktails I sampled that evening, the ‘Smoked Ginger’ was my favourite! I love any drinks with ginger in, in general, but this one had an extra kick! This cocktail contains 50ml of the Smokehead High Voltage, and it really warms the back of your throat. After the heat is over, there is a refreshing sensation about the drink.
If you’re not a whisky drinker, don’t discard it altogether! Try it with different mixers, and ingredients, and you may find your new favourite drink! There are several recipes that can be found on the Smokehead website!
FATHER’S DAY IS AROUND THE CORNER! SUNDAY 17TH JUNE TO BE PRECISE!
