Whisky Reviews for Milk & Honey 2014
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.10 points
- Would have liked to try it as I followed the project for some time now. But apparently they decided to sell a third of the first whisky to collectors through a whisky auction site in order to inflate its price in the same way as the ratings here.
Distributed through Maverick Drinks, this was poured from bottle #16 of M&H’s inaugural release - all from STR casks. The first 100 bottles were auctioned off at whiskyauctioneer.com in August 2018, and went for an average price of £500.
N: This has really come together rather well.
T: Expectedly cask-resinous and pleasingly malty< sweet.
F: Thick sponge icing and vanilla cake, so it’s Mr Kipling’s French Fancies all the way. The wine influence holds off till the last.
C: It’s as you’d expect for a whisky of its age, location & design.
With such a prescriptive remit presently, it will be interesting to see how M&H can/will improve. We could witness another Amrut-style evolution in the future.

- Didn't get a chance to sit down and take notes, just tasted briefly at a distillery event. It's light and fruity with an emphasis on sweet citrus and some hints of vanilla and wood spice. Feels many years older than it is thanks to the hot climate.
