Milk & Honey – Israel’s First Single Malt Whisky 'Experimental Series' (46% ABV) has been matured for 30 months in a virgin American oak cask, before being aged for a further seven months in an ex-bourbon cask, at the distillery's cask room in Tel Aviv.
|The first 100 bottles of Israel's first single malt whisky to be auctioned off
Following its official launch in May, as part of World Whisky Day, the Israel based distillery will auction off the whisky which was produced by Head Distiller Tomer Goren and the late Dr Jim Swan, from August 11th to the 21st, via the whisky auction site whiskyauctioneer.
The distillation of what is Israel’s first ever single malt whisky, began at the distillery's early stages - even before it was established at its current location in south Tel Aviv, before the current industrial equipment was purchased and before the successful crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo.
The barrels were distilled in January 2014, in a warehouse in the Northern Sharon region by Head Distiller Tomer Goren, along with internationally renowned Master Distiller, the late Dr Jim Swan, as part of his role as consultant to the distillery at the time.
Milk & Honey – Israel’s First Single Malt Whisky 'Experimental Series', is said to deliver notes of malted barley, orange, cinnamon, lemon and marzipan on the nose, followed by notes of lemon, orange and black pepper on the palate.
The Milk & Honey – Israel’s First Single Malt Whisky 'Experimental Series' bottles (1-100) will be available via www.whiskyauctioneer.com from August 11th.
