The M&H APEX Pomegranate opens with cinnamon, clove, caramel and milk chocolate. A subtle note of ginger joins in, while the flavour of wood and red grapes adds a deep complexity. An unexpected but pleasant nuance of dried tomatoes in oil rounds off the nose.


The single malt from Israel envelops the palate with a warmth that is immediately noticeable. The creamy texture carries notes of figs and dates, which are accompanied by a strong vinous flavour. Clove and ginger add a certain spiciness, while oak and caramel lend a pleasant sweetness. A hint of earthiness and leatheriness adds an extra dimension to this whisky.


The finish is long and warming, with a sweet and spicy note that is reminiscent of baking cocoa and caresses the palate with a chocolaty intensity.


The M&H APEX Pomegranate Batch 8 clearly shows its youth, both in its flavours and on the palate. Nevertheless, it offers an exciting flavour experience that is worth trying despite its youthful rough edges.

Rating: 75/100 - Very Good (Marcel: 75 | Sascha: 74)

Value for Money: 2/5 - Bad
