Whisky Reviews for Milk & Honey New Make Single Malt

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.40 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    A good new make, you can drink like that. Very robust and quite complex in aroma. I would say that good young whiskey could be made.
    • Nose
      Very fruity, raspberry schnapps, but maybe also some citrus and some mineral, slightly phenolic.
    • Taste
      Still fruity in the mouth, still raspberry, but only subtle, more straw, other berries, citrus and a nice bitterness. Pretty tough.
    • Finish
      Powerful, peppery, slightly bitter, slightly mineral, minimal sulfur.

    French Beans and Raw Patatoes
    The Milk & Honey Distillery is the very first in Israel. She opened her doors in 2015, so there is currently no whisky available yet. Their first single malt release is planned for 2019. But they do have a couple of bottles out there already so that they can keep paying the bills. There is the Levantine Gin at 46% and two young single cask releases of spirit that matured 6 and 8 months on bourbon casks. But what keeps the cash flowing at this point is their single malt new make, at 50% ABV in 50cl bottles.
    The nose starts rather typical for new make on loads of sweet malt and cooked vegetables. In this case I am reminded mostly of French beans and raw potatoes. There is a floral element that becomes a bit sour as you leave the spirit to breathe. No milk no honey (of course, that is just a biblical reference to Israel… unless the owners are fans of the pop band that represented their country during the Euro Vision Song Contest in 1979? Enough BS already, Mark, move on!).
    Nicely creamy and suyrprisingly soft on the palate. Spicy too. A bit sweeter than the nose predicted.
    Very quaffable and seems to me an ideal ingredient for a negroni. On its own, it is quite alright, but not exceptional. Around 40 EUR for a bottle, but getting your hands on it will be quite a quest. Thanks, Sjoerd!

    I’m pleasantly surprised by this new made. The oily texture of it does remind me of the Longmorn’s and Mortlach’s of this world. The aromas are well balanced, delicate but well presented. This promises to be good single malt and it will probably age quite well in a good quality ex-sherry cask (due to the oily texture).
    All in all a nice spirit to sip on it’s own. Nice work!!
    • Nose
      A light, fresh, floral and sweet spirit with aromas of light citrus, coumarin, mint, white pepper, marshmallows, floral tones (buttercups), hem rope, boiled milk, unripe pear, red apple, slight metallic tone, hint of berries and icing sugar.
    • Taste
      A fresh, spicy, sweet and oily spirit with aromas of white pepper, star anise, fresh fennel, icing sugar, mint, dried chamomile, coumarin, linnen, floral tones, butter, acacia honey, vegetable oil, hemp rope, boiled sweets, hint of fresh cut grass, subtle bitter tones, hint of yeast and malt.
    • Finish
      A medium lang and oily finish with aromas of pepper, anise, boiled milk, coumarin, subtle honey, mint, vegetable oil, some subtle bitter tones and malt.
