Milk & Honey Classic Single Malt
Milk & Honey // Israel
Located in Tel Aviv, Milk & Honey Distillery is an up and coming world whisky producer. The warm Israeli climate brings challenges to production, but also intensifies the maturation process, allowing Milk & Honey to release relatively young whisky with a mature flavor profile. Their Classic Single Malt Whisky is Milk & Honey's first commercial release, having matured in ex-bourbon casks, STR casks and a small percentage of virgin oak. Available in Canada, Australia, Europe and the United States (as of mid-2020).
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeEx-Bourbon and Red Wine STR
"Soft floral notes at first, enhanced by a subtle fruitiness and delicate sweetness. There’s touches of oak shavings, but kept to a minimum. The palate is medium bodied with spicy notes, a whiff of oak, some faint notes of orange peel and honey. There’s some oomph here that often lacks in the entry-level expressions of other distilleries, but it also misses just a touch of integration. "
