Released in 2021 as part of the Milk & Honey Apex Series. Working with the late Dr Jim Swan, five Israeli climate zones were identified where they could experiment with cask ageing. M&H Apex Dead Sea is the first whisky to be released as a result of this R&D initiative, and the first whisky ever to be aged in the lowest place on earth, the Dead Sea where temperatures climb as high as 50ºC. Distilled on 24 June 2018, and in October 2018 twenty ex-bourbon, ex-red wine and ex-STR (shaved, toasted and re-charred) casks were placed on a hotel rooftop in the Dead Sea zone (±423 meters below sea level) where they matured for a year before being returned to M&H’s warehouse in Tel Aviv until the liquid was bottled on 4 July 2021. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 56.2%. 4,892 bottles were produced. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Sweet with French vanilla and mocha, notes of cigar box and a refreshing hint of spearmint, pleasant oakiness in the background throughout.

Palate: A gentle beginning with black tea leaves followed by a powerful wave of warm spices such as cinnamon and coriander seeds, dark cocoa powder and a pinch of crushed white pepper.

Finish: Long and satisfying with candied ginger and cloves, joined by a bouquet of toasted herbs and coarse sea salt.
