Kosher whisky all the way from Israel

Tattersalls Club - Monday, August 03, 2020

 

This whisky is so smart it had us wondering if it might be Scotch exported to be bottled and matured in Israel, but no, it's not - we missed the foiled and embossed stamp of authenticity - this was distilled and aged in Tel Aviv.

 

It’s the real deal, it drinks brilliantly and its only flaw is that at $120, it's pricey. But you know what? It’s really a bargain because this will be an instant talking point in your cabinet - and one that will see you convert unbelievers into raving fans.

 

In what has to be the whisky upset of 2020, this underdog has delivered us one of the finest drams of the year.

 

Colour

Light and golden, beyond straw.

 

Nose

Lifted dried fruits, floral grass and vanilla.

 

Palate

Smooth and sweet with a touch of caramel slightly oaky-toasty - cross between speyside and a lowland malt like Glenkinchie. Great length. It’s 46% but not drinking hot.

 

Water

Released a sherbet zing and more floral spice notes, mid-palate filling out nicely.
