Milk & Honey Wine Cask

One of three expressions from the Milk & Honey Elements Series, which sees the Tel Aviv-based distillery's whisky aged in a variety of casks, imparting a medley of flavour profiles. This one in particular was aged in bourbon casks and red wine casks (which also came from Israel), bringing some ripe berry notes to the single malt.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Strawberry, dry barley, a hint of waxy orange peel and crunchy brown sugar.

Palate Very slightly floral with citrus blossom, before redcurrant and raisin develop, with a pile of cinnamon sticks off to the side.

Finish Plum, oak, and poached pear.

Reviews for Milk & Honey Elements Series - Red Wine Cask
Ocean breeze, almonds, citrus and honeysuckle. Great whisky.
My personal favorite in their Elements series. Brings out something indeed quite unique, yet not at all quirky nor overdoing it.
My personal tasting notes vary a bit from the ones provided here by masterofmalt (which usually tend to match my own tasting notes with frightening accuracy).
Nose: Cherries, almonds, ocean breeze, oak, mild early spring blossom, a bit of citrus, ginger and brown sugar hiding in there. A very interesting and complex nose for a young bottle, due to the local climate of course.
Palate: honeysuckle, citrus peel, subtle almond notes, oceanside air again, astringency which makes one think of the dry red wine cask makes way to the finish.
Finish: Floral again, cinnamon, subtle honey notes and very delicate notes of salt. Almonds develop here too and linger for quite a long finish in a clean palate.

Overall: This one falls into the category of whiskies with oceanic notes, which I've grown increasingly fond of since my trip to Scotland five years ago. It can definitely blend in and belong with significantly more expensive bottles in blind tasting sessions. I absolutely love that ocean and almond aroma. One can clearly notice the red wine cask, but not in any way that would overburden this as whisky of course. It's a type of cask finish that I'd love to see becoming more prevalent. The astringency and general profile also makes sense when you're acquainted with red Israeli wines.
Great whisky.

nice to have in your collection
so i got this whisky straight from the store in Tel Aviv,
as an israeli i was really surprised to hear about an israeli whisky,
cant say im disappointed! really good whisky for its price range,
very strong smell, with a very mellow taste that doesnt burn your throat,
i recommend letting the whisky breath a little after you pour it, at least 2-3 minutes, then you can really enjoy it
