ISRAEL / 0.70ltr, 46% ABV
Milk & Honey Young Single Malt Triple Cask
An edition of 1,451 bottles that is the direct, advanced continuation of the previous edition in the series: Triple Cask, a blend of three casks – an ex-bourbon barrel and two ex-red wine casks at different levels of charring, balancing and refining the different flavors. One of the casks was finished for a few months in a barrel that previously used to mature peated whisky from the island of Islay in Scotland, providing an additional layer of slight peatiness , and a complexity to the distillate.
A delicate peatiness together with a malty sweetness, oak, followed by the sweetness of dried fruit and honey.
Light-bodied, notes of peaty smoke predominate at first, accompanied by the sweet taste of dried fruit and honey.
Long finish. The peaty note lingers in the mouth for a while, together with light woody flavors.
