    Tasted in the living room

    Rather any kind of nose, aromas a little indistinct.
    On the palate, on the other hand, quite honest. A certain balance is formed, especially with wine barrels and peat barrels.
    We will have to wait to confirm the test.

  6. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur


    The makeup consists of: 2/3rds ex-bourbon, nearly a third of ex-red wine [STR], and a brief ex-Islay finish.

    N: A funky sweet creamy nose, not dissimilar to early production from Strathearn, Cotswold or Yorkshire distilleries for example.
    T: Delivers a sugary, woody, milky concoction.
    F: The use of ex-Islay casks only really shows at the tail, [unofficially an Ardbeg cask don’t you know].
    C: Only five months, wow!

    Review of the Milk And Honey Triple Cask

    This is a masterful distillery vatting of three casks, American Ex-Bourbon, Israeli Red Wine and a mystery cask from an Islay distillery. Despite being very young single malt (my guess is two years or less), the result from this new Tel Aviv distillery is quite delicious.
    On the Nose:A rich combination of perfumed white wine and coastal peat like the remains of a beach bonfire, fresh challah dough, sour lemon and a hint of wood furniture polish.Taste:Fruity white wine, sour lemon, milky salty-caramel and yellow fruits, apples, honey-dew melon, a touch of red berry with some spicy but silky tannins and a hint of Islay coastal peat on the back of the tongue. The caramel and peat combine for a lasting finish.

    What I find most impressive is despite its ridiculously young age, so young in fact, they can't even call it whisky, is that it shows no spirit alcohol heat whatsoever, but instead displays a character and flavour of a single malt three to four times its age, no doubt due to the rapid maturation in the very humid Tel Aviv weather.
    The first bottle released in this "Young Single Malt" series was Cask#33. This showed great promise but was very two dimensional and Banana bubble-gum dominant flavours. This Triple Cask is a significant step forward in terms of drinkability and complexity.
    Beware! This is a very "moreish” single malt and the bottle is only 50cl so it might be worth getting a second bottle if you see it, before it runs out.If I had to guess I’d say the Islay cask was an Ex-Bourbon Lagavulin or possibly Laphroaig.
