MILK & HONEY Peated Cask Finish 55%

Single Malt Whisky, Israel, 70cl, Ref: 56786

Quantity limited to 2 bottle(s) by client.

The Milk & Honey distillery began production in March 2015. In addition to its single malt, it also produces a gin called Levantine produced entirely from malted barley, which is macerated with juniper berry, oregano, lemon and orange peel, chamomile, lemon verbena, cinnamon and black pepper. After being aged for three years in a first fill bourbon cask, this version was then finished for three months in an ex-Islay whisky cask. A true land of contrasts, in terms of both flavours and aromas, it constantly wavers between power and mellowness. To better highlight this original duality throughout the tasting, its guiding themes are two elements key to its balance: peat and smoke.

the concentrated first nose reveals beeswax, candied fruit (peat), camphor and intense smoke. Allowed to breathe, it becomes animal (smoked meat), floral (tuberose) and rooty (gentian). The resolute attack is characterized by notes of talc and pommade (ointment). The mid-palate evokes thin strips of dried peat. Gradually, the flavour palate becomes fruity and floral (banana, date, violet, dandelion). The rich finish is candied (lemon), peaty and vanilla. The retro-nasal olfaction is vegetal (cut hay), saline and smoky (tobacco).

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep burnished gold.
  • Nose : rich, concentrated. At once characterized by beeswax, candied fruit (pear, Mirabelle plum), camphor and intense smoke, the first nose boasts impressive power and firmness. Allowed to breathe, it becomes animal (smoked meat), floral (tuberose, iris butter), rooty (gentian) and spicy (ginger). Then, very appropriately and with lots of originality, various honeys (lime blossom, heather, pine, lavender) dominate the palette of aromas. Note that these fragrances form an incredibly united front.
  • Palate : strong-willed, full-bodied. On the attack, notes of talc and pommade (tiger balm) appear alongside fresh fig and iodine tincture. The mid-palate invites us to contemplate dried peat cut into thin strips. The flavour palette then becomes extremely saline and vegetal (twig, lichen). Fruit and florals gradually appear. These include dried banana, date, violet and dandelion. The very mineral (slate) end of the palate is also earthy and salty (dried seaweed).
  • Overall : long, generous. Moving from candied citrus fruit to dried peat, via bourbon vanilla, the start of the finish shows unwavering strength and intensity. Gradually, zan liquorice sweets, violet and an oily and chocolatey peat envelop the taste buds. The retro-nasal olfaction is then vegetal (cut hay, straw), saline (mineral salts) and smoky (tobacco, chimney smoke). The empty glass is a melting pot of heady florals, vanilla, camphor, ash and citrus fruit (lemon).

The brand

Milk & Honey est née du rêve de deux entrepreneurs: Gal et Lital Kalkshtein. La distillerie est ainsi construite au coeur Tel Aviv, le centre culturel et culinaire d’Israël. À la fois proche de la plage et de la vieille ville de Jaffa, elle s'inspire de toutes ses traditions, actuelles comme plus anciennes. Pour relever ce défi, de surcroit dans une zone climatique complexe, ses fondateurs s’associent au regretté maître distillateur Dr Jim Swan, spécialiste des méthodes de vieillissement. Ils nomment également Tomer Goren, fort de ses 14 ans d’expérience dans la distillation, Maître Distillateur. Ils s’équipent alors du matériel le plus avancé, s’approvisionnent des meilleures matières premières et sélectionnent leurs fûts de façon méticuleuse. La distillerie s’inspire de la tradition de distillation écossaise pour s’assurer de la qualité et de l’authenticité de ses produits mais ajoute une touche innovante de par ses vieillissements. Soumis à des conditions climatiques extrêmes, les whiskies de Milk & Honey bénéficient d’une maturation rapide. Cette maturation accélérée s’exprime à travers un phénomène de part des anges conséquent qui s’élève de 9 à 11% à Tel Aviv jusqu’à 25% vers la mer morte.
