Milk and Honey
Milk & Honey Elements Sherry Cask Israeli Single Malt Whisky 46% 70cl
Milk & Honey is Israel’s first whisky distillery, established in 2012 just south of Tel Aviv. The first ever single malt whisky for the country was released in 2017 as three-year-old malt distilled at a temporary location - distillation at the current site only started in 2015, with the help of industry legend Dr Jim Swan.A wide variety of cask types - all of which are kosher - have been utilised by the team, and the intense climate menas maturation is 'faster' due to increased interaction between spirit and wood thanks to the greater fluctutations in temperature.
Although plenty of people seemed surprised that M&H won World's Best Whisky at the 2023 World Whisky Awards, plenty of those who had actually experienced the output of the distillery knew it was probably just a matter of time. The extreme climate of Israel means greater interaction between spirit and wood - some dub it 'accelerated aging' - which means you can discover complex flavour profiles in a relatively short amount of time. The Sherry casks used here are Kosher, makin gthis the first whisky ever to be matured in Kosher Sherry barrels.
This is not a 'Sherry bomb' however - the balance is impeccable, with dark fruit dancing with dried spice and even tobacco leaves. The finish is hugely complex, and it's easy to see why this ended up being an award-winner!
