M&H Whisky in Bloom Lightly Peated Young Israeli Single Malt, 46%

Price: $55 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

M&H (Milk & Honey), founded in 2013, is Israel's first whisky distillery. This expression and its sibling bottling Double Cask are M&H's first to hit the U.S. Aged 2 years in bourbon, STR (shaved, toasted, and re-charred), and Islay casks, its nose offers candied lemon, lime leaf, tea, and licorice. The palate is soft, fruity, and spiced, with chocolate and light peat. The finish is spiced and lightly peated, with tropical fruit accents. Brilliant texture and an unusual spice profile.
