When is a single malt not a whisky? When it’s the snappily-titled M&H Young Single Malt Aged Spirit, that’s when. Later this year, there will be a whisky release from Israel’s first single malt distillery, but the spirit is so delicious at about six months aging that the team has decided to bottle some now. This is the Triple Cask release, and it’s aged in a combination of ex-bourbon, Islay and STR (shaved, toasted and re-charred) casks that previously held Israeli wine.
On the nose: Some peat and damp cardboard, black pepper, smoked sweetcorn and fresh pancakes. Popcorn follows along with haddock and vanilla ice cream. There’s also a light honey, chewed pencil and an inoffensive nature but where’s the distillery character?
In the mouth: An immediate Islay influence with the peaty coastal sea spray flavours we’re all well versed in. Orange peel, apple jelly and a sweet peat with a very short finish. It does feel young but entirely drinkable.
