Milk & Honey, Classic Single Malt Israeli Whisky (700ml)
Milk & Honey Distillery, Classic Single Malt
Israeli Single Malt
The Milk & Honey Classic single malt whisky is made using the finest ex-bourbon casks and special red-wine STR casks, giving it a light and balanced character.
Nose: Gentle vanilla sweetness, followed by light oak and floral notes.
Palate: Light body, vanilla, caramel and honey sweetness, balanced by woody notes and light black pepper spiciness.
Finish: Short but delicate. The oak notes lingers in the palate for a while with a nice light spiciness.
From Whisky Magazine's Becky Paskin:
Nose: Beautiful wine character with aromas of molasses, sticky strawberry jam and overripe figs, but with a crunchy malt element.
Palate: Light and fresh despite the jammy nose. Fresh fruits – strawberries and juicy grapes, then comes along a malty and musty floor character.
Finish: Strawberry jelly, red wine and a hint of charred oak.
Comment: Really well balanced. Excellent use of wine casks to mature a young spirit.
Milk & Honey is Israel's first single malt whisky distillery. It began operating in 2014 in the south of Tel Aviv. All of the distillery’s products are Kosher.
