Israeli Rum Cask Spirit 2.5yr
On a recent trip to Scotland my good friend Yoav (@yoavgel) brought me a little mystery sample.
Tasting blind, my notes below, i was really impressed and even more so when i discovered this was a 2.5yr old Israeli Spirit (not quite whisky yet) matured in a Rum cask.
Made by the Rosenblatt Brothers (hebrew blog but use google translate) this shows fantastic potential as i would happily have bought a bottle of this now.
Keep up the good work guys, i really am looking forward to seeing this when it's actually bottled.
An initial huge hit of Sweetness, demerera sugar & treacle scores with a very familiar feeling. An underlying Maltiness & hints of Xmas cake spices with a gentle hint of acetone in the background
sweet & spicy demerera sugar & cough medicine with nutmeg
