MILK & HONEY 100 Proof French Connections 57,1%
Single Malt Whisky, Israel, 70cl, Ref: 58012
Distilled on 27 June 2017, this ex-bourbon cask version follows the Milk & Honey Peated Cask Finish from our 2020 Creation Catalogue. Full of energy on the nose, it begins by fearlessly exploring a huge diversity of fruity, spicy, rich and empyreumatic lands. Next, to better highlight this intense exuberance, it draws on malted barley to guide the tasting to increased classicism and gradually take on stunning golden tones.

- Appearance : deep burnished gold.
- Nose : rich and unctuous. Particularly rich (semolina pudding, vanilla éclair) and spicy (cinnamon, ginger), the first nose boasts lots of charm. Allowed to breathe, juicy fruits (pear, greengage plum) and exotic fruits (roasted pineapple, banana) take centre stage on the aromatic palette. Gradually, papier d’Arménie, beeswax and walnut create a very pleasant smoothness. Finally, a handful of chillies (Cayenne pepper) and black pepper add a very refined woodiness.
- Palate : svelte, lively. Delicately chocolate and praline, the attack is also deeply fruity (dried apple, Corinthian raisin), fibrous (liquorice stick) and herbaceous (sage, white mint). On the mid-palate, malted barley makes a defiant entrance. It also plays an important role in tracing the golden blonde of the chromatic palette. At the end of the palate, cumin, coconut milk and bean draw out the length of the tasting.
- Overall : long, concentrated. Iris butter, grated ginger, toasted walnut, peanut and pine resin pay tribute to the sunny character of the start of the finish. Next, malted barley comes back with a vengeance. It is as radiant as ever. The fresh and dynamic retro-nasal olfaction is characterized by notes of candied fruit (lemon, apricot), verbena and salted butter caramel. The empty glass is then powdery (talc), candied (pear, mandarin) and balsamic (thuja, cedar).
