Elements (by Milk & Honey) "Peated" Single Malt Whisky (Israel) 750ML
Distillery Notes:Take true passion for single malt whisky, add the boldness and cutting-edge innovation that the Israeli startup ecosystem is famous for, mix it with no-compromising commitment to craftmanship and tradition, and you get M&H, Israel’s first whisky distillery.
Founded in 2012, under the expert guidance of the late Dr. Jim Swan, the passionate and dedicated team of the M&H distillery has boldly crafted single malt spirits, matured by the hot and humid climate of vibrant Tel Aviv.
The casks that the M&H distillery use to mature their spirit ensure a wide and exceptional spectrum of flavors.
The core range are ex-bourbon casks along with red wine STR casks. The M&H team are always on the lookout for unique barrels such as pomegranate wine, red wine casks from selected wineries in Israel, kosher sherry, 400 liters French Limousin oak casks that were used to mature Kosher Cognac, rum, etc.
Tasting Notes: The Atlantic meets the Mediterranean. This whisky was matured in casks from Islay, that soaked in smoky aromas and salty flavors, and was then blended with ex-bourbon barrel-aged single malt. The Elements Peated integrates the fruity notes of the new make into the casks’ typical Islay peaty notes; the result is a delicate, rather mellow, and lightly peated whisky.
AROMA: Delightfully fresh. A distinct smoky, earthy scent opens to a unique balance of vanilla and oak notes, with a final hint of lemon.
PALATE: Medium bodied. Vanilla sweetness is followed by a delicate peat touch. A light spiciness accompanies ginger and lemon flavors.
FINISH: Long. The peat coats the mouth, with delicate oak and lemon flavors lingering on the tongue.
