Elements (by Milk & Honey) "Red Wine Cask" 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: Ex-red wine casks that were sourced from Israel’s finest wineries were picked for this part of the Elements trilogy. The Mediterranean’s climate, variety of soil types, hot sunny days and cool nights bring a spicy and unique flavor to Israeli wine – and in turn, our casks. The wine casks used in the Elements Red Wine are a celebration of local terroir, curating a floral single malt with notes of raisins.
AROMA: Red dried fruits, ginger, oak, and delicate coconut bouquet lead a gentle mineral perfume.
PALATE: Light bodied. Wine flavors coat the mouth, accompanied by subtle oak and vanilla notes, followed by gentle floral blossoms.
FINISH:Medium. The dried fruits and wine linger, finishing with a touch of dark raisins.
