Title:
Milk & Honey APEX Fortified Red Wine Cask
Description:
The Apex Fortified Red Wine Cask from M&H Whiskey Distillery has a multitude of flavors, but overall it is not satisfying. What should have been a Rob Roy in a bottle comes off harsh, with the palate searching to make sense of what it has tasted. Maybe the hot climate didn’t meld the cask and whisky as delicately as it could have, as something is amiss.

Vital Stats: 60.4% ABV, 120.8 proof. A non-chill filtered single malt made in Tel Aviv, Israel. Matured in ex-fortified red wine casks. Both the whisky and the fortified red wine meet kosher standards. 750ml $100.

Appearance: Amber/Fino sherry

Nose: The first thing I notice is smokey grain. It seems to hover over the whole dram. Fresh garden mint with a sweetness makes the whisky smell like a mint julep. Baby powder follows the mint before making way for the fruitier elements. Juicy blackberry and strawberry mingle with bright apricot.

Palate: The whisky tastes smokey with a bit of mint. Honey makes the whisky seem viscous, but it is just the oily mouthfeel. Apricot and nectarine lend some more sweetness, but in a light refreshing way. There is a funk just before the finish, and black pepper sneaks up right behind. The finish is dry with cocoa powder and berry.
