The floral Single Malt that started it all… in Tel Aviv.

Milk & Honey Distillery is the creation of serial tech entrepreneur Gal Kalkshtein and his team — Amit Dror, Simon Fried, and Roee and Naama Licht. Together they opened the first distillery in Israel. They drew up the plans in 2012 and started production in 2014. Their first products hit the shelves in 2016 and in May of 2017 they announced the first Single Malt produced in Israel — The M&H Classic. Today, their range includes New Make, two Gins, Roots Herbal Liqueur, and a handful of Single Malt versions.

Milk & Honey Classic is the first and multi-award-winning flagship Single Malt from M&H. This non-age-statement dram is aged "under the Tel Aviv sun" in a combination of ex-Bourbon casks and STR Red Wine casks. It’s light and crisp with no chill-filtration or artificial colorings and bottled at a perfect 46% ABV. You will discover a gentle Spirit with a floral and caramel character that blooms on the palate.

Smartass Corner #1:
"Milk and Honey" comes from Exodus, Chapter 3 verse 8. The Promised Land (Israel) is referred to as, "a land flowing with milk and honey."

Smartass Corner #2:
Dr.Jim Swan was a legend in the Whisky business. He had a long career as a noted Whisky consultant, helping launch distilleries around thew world. He is credited with developing the STR technique for barrel re-use (Shaving, Toasting, & Re-Charring) used today.

Derek
Derek,
Sweet nose of toffee with a touch of honey. First sip was honey sweet followed by a strong kick of spice. A drop of water toned down both the sweetness and the alcohol and let a mellowed spice shine through, almost more akin to cinnamon red hots than fiery pepper. Not really my particular cup of tea I suppose, but it was decent enough to be worth trying once.
 
James
James,
Advent day 4, 2020. Aroma & taste are the same - dominant spice and alcohol burn with a bit of sweetness on the finish. Not one I'd buy
 
Louise
Louise,
Smooth blend — thought it tasted smoky but apparently that’s “roasted”
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Very enjoyable. Sweet with a nice spicy bite. Almost rye-like.

Very nice. Spicy with a floral finish.
 
Jason
Jason,
Started off rough, but got a bit better after I let breathe for a while. I enjoyed the spice balanced with sweetness, but finish remained too harsh for me.
 
Todd
Todd,
Sweet toffee. A little spice. Water takes away the sweetness.
 
Tommy
Tommy,
Heavy on the spice, but pretty smooth!
 
Vincent
Vincent,
Day 4 of Advent - First sip has a strong spice bite, but otherwise a light and smooth
 
Thomas
Thomas,
#20 on Whisky Advocate’s 2020 Top 20 list. Huh. Definitely spicy, but boring otherwise. Not enjoyable for me.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Surprisingly smooth and balanced for a whiskey with 'spicy' as the leading flavor.
 
Scott
Scott,
Once it sat, it became quite pleasant...floral notes were jarring at first for a whiskey, but found to enjoy it as it sat
 
Kent
Kent,
I like the lingering flavor, but it’s a rough ride getting there.
 
Dustin
Dustin,
Not quite my tempo. Didn’t really settle down for me and the finish lingered too strongly for me.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
I enjoyed this glass. Definitely spicy to start but the toffee and caramel come in nicely afterwards
 
Adam
Adam,
Good flavor: up front, spice, with a nice sweet and smokey flavor midway. Lingering oak finish. Great mouthfeel.
 
Michael
Michael,
Day 4 of 2020 Advent calendar. Its really nice all around. Nose is sweet candy, flavor is oak roast for me. Not bad for a generic scotch I am enjoying the sample very much but prefer the WestLand Sherry, Glendronach's and WestWard.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I like it overall, but that first bite is almost overwhelming on the first sip. The nose is really nice, fresh and a little bright. The spice isn't actually as big as I had worked myself up for by the spiral graphic, but it is a bit of a mountain to climb. The tail end is very pleasant. A little extra spice on the finish at the very end, but very smooth and mellow.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Pretty generic all around, tastes like a very light run of the mill speyside scotch. Too much bite, but I do like the mellowness over all
 
Andrew
Andrew,
The bite overwhelms the other flavors
 
Frank
Frank,
(Advent 2020, #4) Some oak and sweetness in the nose, may some vanilla. Flavor wise there's some carmel/vanilla, oak, and a touch of smokiness (probably what the tasting card says roasted). The finish had almost a little spiciness to it.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Strong hints of honey with a smooth mellow finish.
 
Terry
Terry,
Advent 2020 #4 just not a scotch fan. Lighter than most. The finish is decent. Mellows on you.
 
Kim
Kim,
The vanilla and oak is predominate at first, but then a hint of toffee. The drink lingers with a slight warm after taste. Overall pretty darn good.
 
brad
brad,
Great nose. I get toasted pecan and plenty of vanilla. Palate is not quite as good, but still nice. Oak, vanilla, and floral, with light fruitiness. I like it, but a little overpriced. If this were sub 50-60, I’d be a buyer. For around 80, there are better options.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
(Advent 2020 #4) Spicy followed by a bite that's a bit rough. Occasional hints of smoothness that may be a caramel or toffee, then back to that bite.

Esmond,
If you’re looking for a light scotch whiskey, this is it.

Solid whisky
