The third Single Malt in the Elements Series from M&H brings a balanced smoky dram to the front page.
Milk & Honey Distillery (M&H) is the creation of serial tech entrepreneur Gal Kalkshtein and his team — Amit Dror, Simon Fried, and Roee & Naama Licht. Together they opened the first distillery in Israel. Together, 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 range of Single Malt editions.
Milk & Honey introduced the Elements Series in 2020. Each one is an exploration of applying classic wood aging techniques with an Israeli flare. Milk & Honey Elements Sherry Cask is their signature “Classic” Single Malt with approximately 40% of the Spirit aged in specially prepared casks.
For Milk & Honey Elements Peated Single Malt Whisky, the extra element of aging is refill Whisky casks that held Peated Single Malt from Islay. So the Spirit has a balanced, softer smoke and brine influence which a LOT of folks are going to like. And it’s bottled at a perfect 46% ABV, so smiles all around on this one.

Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma has the grain and fruit notes of the core Single Malt, but there is a warm smoke and sea influence as well along with a lemon zest notes that tickles a bit.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate opens with a full mouth-feel and just a hint of peat and brine followed by notes of vanilla flan, ginger snaps, and more lemon zest.
The finish is relatively long and coating notes of smoke and lemon bars.
