Matured in Bourbon and Red Wine STR(Shave, Toasted and Re-Charred) casks.
Milk & Honey Distillery is Israel's first whisky distillery. They are dedicated to only genuine artisinal manufacturing and committed maintaining the highest standards following Scottish tradition. Although a young whisky the hot and humid climate of Tel Aviv ensures a fast maturation giving the whisky a complexity of a much older whisky.
MADE IN TEL AVIV
The first Israeli whisky distillery is located in the first city of Israel. Symbolic? Maybe, but it wasn’t for historic reasons that we chose to set the distillery here: Tel Aviv is the heart of Israel’s culinary and drinking scene. There are amazing indoor and outdoor markets here, world-class bars, and restaurants like no other place in the world. We are excited to be a part of the city that never stops.
Wasn't at all sure what to expect here. I'm not used to tasting non-aged whiskies. Started by adding "a drop" of (tap) water to bring it back to 80-proof. It has a complex but enjoyable taste. I can taste the bourbon and red wine cask aging. Perhaps its the warm, somewhat humid Mediterranean climate which causes a more rapid maturation. Im sure that we'll see more mature woodiness in a decade. But for a first batch, i am enjoying this.
