There are many varieties of casks that can be used to age a Single Malt whisky. Used Bourbon, Sherry, and Port casks are quite common. And we’ve even seen Single Malts aged or finished in used Rum and Tequila barrels. The fine folks at Milk & Honey Distillery of Tel Aviv, Israel have decided to try something a little different with a recent bottling from their Apex Series…
Pomegranate Wine Cask is what they call the Single Malt whisky that we’ll be discussing in this video. It’s a whisky with a 6, and by whisky with a 6 we mean it has an ABV of 60.3%. In a word: YOWZA!
Here’s what they have to say about it:
This small batch, single malt whisky was aged in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in fortified style pomegranate wine casks for a period of six months. The unique pomegranate fruit offers this whisky Its exceptional flavors.
We tried this whisky a short while ago during a livestream event with Milk & Honey Distillery that we hosted back in September of 2020. We really enjoyed it back then and have been on the hunt for a bottle ever since. As luck would have it, we found it at a nearby liquor store, so we’re very excited to share our thoughts on our second impressions of this whisky.
